Tearanie Hoyle
Chief Instructor

Welcome to Hoyle’s Kung Fu, Fitness & Tai Chi Martial Arts Academy.  We teach authentic traditional Chinese martial arts with a modern day approach. Our goal at Hoyle’s Kung Fu is fitness, health, wellness, self-defense, creating black belts, and improving the community.  Mr. Tearanie Hoyle is the chief instructor and a 20 year veteran. I have served 4 years in the United States Marine Corps and 16 years in the United States Army.  He trained with Sifu Kevin Clark at Martial Arts Zen in Killeen, Texas for approximately from 2009-2023, for approximately 14 years. He learned aspects of the Northern Wah Lum Tam Tui Praying Mantis, Northern Style Seven Star Praying Mantis, Doh Yi, Medical Qigong, and Yang Style Tai Chi. In addition, he has competed in various international and national competitions winning gold and silver medals in forms, weapons, and fighting.  

Because of a stronger interest in Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu, Mr. Hoyle wanted to increase his knowledge of Seven Star Mantis and decided to continue his training with Master Derrick Wright of Wright’s Kung Fu. Master Wright is an 8th generation disciple of Seven Star Mantis Style under Grandmaster Lee Kam Wing of the International Seven Star Mantis Style Association, Hong Kong. My students and I look forward to increasing our skills and knowledge in Seven Star Mantis, 18 Lohand Qigong, and Tai Chi with Master Derrick Wright and Grandmaster Lee Kam Wing.

"A great experience, could not be happier with the results so quickly. Patient instructor, friendly classmates, easy to locate facility. I just started and am ready for the adventure to continue."


"I started training with Mr. Hoyle about two months ago. I'm a 39 year old who had doubts about how I was going to be able to keep up. With the step by step instructions, and constant reassurance yet pushing all the students to stay black belt minded, and to be black belt strong. I am able to touch my toes for the first time in my life after a life of always being athletic. I recommend Mr. Hoyle for any age. When my daughter gets old enough she will be joining the Academy also."
