About Kung Fu Connection

Our History

Master Roberto Baptista’s Kung Fu Connection has an interesting history.

Master Gus Rubio founded Kung Fu Connection in the end of the 1980’s with the sole purpose of teaching authentic Chinese martial arts in North Miami, Florida.

In 2016, Master Gus Rubio invited Master Roberto Baptista, direct disciples of Grandmaster Chan Kwok Wai and his Kung Fu uncle, to come to the USA and join Kung Fu Connection as its Program Director.

In 2017, upon the arrival of Master Baptista in the USA, Master Claudio Medeiros, another direct disciple of Grandmaster Chan Kwok Wai, also joined Kung Fu Connection.

Kung Fu Connection Masters share more than 100 years of combined experience in Chinese Martial Arts (Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qigong, etc.). Where else can you find it?

The Kung Fu Connection is a lifetime member of the USAWKF (United States of America Wushu Kung Fu Federation), the sole organization recognized by the I.O.C. (International Olympic Commitee), that governs Kung Fu/Wushu in all its forms in the U.S.A.
