LINEAGE

There are hundreds of styles of Kung Fu, many popularized by the media, some specific to geography, many secretive and others dying in the wake of cultural revolution. 

Lineage is what distinguishes traditional Kung Fu.  Although unavailable in modern China, the original techniques, forms and philosophy continue to be honored at our school. 

  Master Rubio is a direct disciple of Chueng Kune Pai and Bak Sui Lum These powerful systems create such an indomitable foundation they provide a strong basis for any other martial art. 

Our mission at Kung Fu Connection  is to empower modern society through these unadulterated ancient arts.

 DISCIPLESHIP 

Discipleship is a rare privilege and a relationship  that is difficult for Westerners to comprehend. What appears subservient on the surface actually offers the wisdom to a liberation of self that transcends time. It's a position that requires the utmost integrity and loyalty, not to mention a mastery over ones ego.  Currently the only two active disciples of Master Rubio that hold the keys to the future. See below.
