HISTORY

In Boston’s Chinatown, we have an unrivaled history and reputation - our membership base is comprised of people from all walks of life including: doctors, community leaders, entrepreneurs, lawyers, martial artists, law enforcement, financial services professionals, pharmacists, politicians, small business owners, youth counselors, students and ordinary citizens of the commonwealth.

 

1948 marks the birth of the Gung Ho Club in Boston, which has persevered through good and bad times to sustain itself as a strong community presence that celebrates and educates Chinese youth. As the oldest Chinese athletic club in Boston, we continue to be the only organization that provides members access to a clubhouse in Chinatown and teaches the art of the Lion dance alongside our athletic programs.

 

The historical timeline explains our significance locally in Boston's Chinatown and also our connection to a worldwide organization dating back hundreds of years into Chinese history.
