Sigung Maury started his training when he was 10 years old in Southern Kung Fu back in 1976 with his brother-in-law, Sifu Ruiz. In 1980 he started studying Northern Dragon (Northern 5 Animals) kung fu with Master Yamamoto and Northern Long Fist (Hua Quan) Kung Fu with Master Chen in New York City Chinatown. He started his Yang style Tai Chi Chuan training in 1990 with Dr. Kay-Chi Leung and Master Lin-Lin Harn of Cambridge Massachusetts when he moved to Worcester. Over the past 30 years Sigung Maury has studied and expanded his knowledge in kung fu by learning various styles from some of New York's most prominent master's. Presently Sigung Maury's primary focus is on preserving Hua Quan to be as authentic and complete as the original art dating back to the Former Song Dynasty (420 AD). He has dedicated his life to the glory of spreading and teaching the original system of Hua Quan (Glorious Boxing), as passed down from generation to generation from the last recorded Hua Quan Grandmaster, Cai Guiging. Sigung Maury teaches Hua Quan as it was taught to him by Master Chen who learned it from his father who had learned Hua Quan directly from Grandmaster Cai Guigin in the early 1900's.
It is said that Hua Quan has 48 sets in all. Much of the information on Hua Quan has gotten lost over time or absorbed and modified by other styles. Sigung Maury is constantly researching the old manuals and masters to bring the system of Hua Quan back to completion. Presently Sigung Maury has the 12 sectional sets - referred to as the core, some of the advanced sets, referred to as roads, as well as some of the weapon and two person sparring sets.
Sigung Maury has been providing kung fu to the Massachusetts area since 1990. He continues to develop high quality instructors to help spread kung fu in multiple locations such as Massachusetts, Cape Cod, North Carolina and Virginia.
