Member Spotlight…U.S. Shuai Chiao Kung Fu Academy


Just a few weeks ago, Brooklyn business owners Jessica and Daniel Cliff and Brooklyn resident, Brandon Smith traveled to the Pan-American Cup in Araraquara, Brazil representing Team USA ShuaiJiao! A lot of you supported our efforts to get there and we greatly appreciate everything you did for us! We are happy to say that Brandon took FIRST place in the 220 lb division AND received MVP of the entire tournament! Sifu Daniel Cliff took FRIST place in the 165 lb division and Jessica Cliff took SECOND place in the 140 lb division! Overall as a team, Team USA took 3rd in the tournament! It was quite an experience, a lot of tough competition but we couldn’t have done it without the support and love from our community in Brooklyn!

Brandon Smith has been training at the U.S. Shuai Chiao Kung Fu Academy for 6 years and holds 4 National Titles, 3rd in the World Cup, and 1st in the Pan-American Cup! At our school we teach men, women and children as young as three years old. We teach traditional Kung Fu with a focus on Shuai Chiao and San Shou. Once you join our classes you’ll see the benefits of focus, concentration, stress-relief, weight loss, and self-defense etc…. We offer classes Monday – Saturday. If you are interested in getting more information about our schedule or our classes, please reach out to Jessica at 216.351.3222 or at or visit us online at

If you’re interested in checking out our pictures and videos from the tournament in Brazil, follow us on facebook @KungFuWest or on Instagram @BrooklynKungFu

Hope to see you all in class soon! It’s never too late to start!
