The Shaolin Kung Fu Centers / Maury’s Kung Fu Academy participated in the Inaugural New England Chinese Martial Arts Championship which was held at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston, MA on Saturday, July 30th, 2011. Sifu Gary, Simo, Sije Cheyenne, Sihing Benjie, and Matt all drove into Boston for this amazing event.
