Master Rubio

Master Gus Rubio started his KungFu journey in the 70’s studying with late Master Bak Hay Chin (AKA: Antonio or Kenny), who first brought the authentic traditional Northern Shaolin (Bei Shaolin/Bak Sil Lam) Kung Fu Style to Florida in the 70’s and later the Hua Shan Pai Taoist Qi Gong. Master Bak Hay Chin was the first student of the internationally famous Grandmaster Chan Kwok Wai in Brazil, studying with him for a decade before moving to the USA. Master Chin legacy lives on, as Master Gus Rubio became his sole Northern Shaolin student to give continuity to his work in Miami, FL.
