Why Yang Family Tai Chi ?
There are 5 recognised styles of Tai Chi of which the Yang style has become the most
The Yang Family Tai Chi dynasty began with the legendary Yang Lu Chan (1799 - 1872).
The family art was passed onto his grandson Yang Cheng Fu and then to Fu Zhong Wen -
Cheng Fu's nephew and prominent disciple (Tuti). He in turn passed on the tradition to his
son Fu Sheng Yuan who now lives in Perth W.A.
Born in 1931 and beginning his training at the age of 9, Grandmaster Fu Sheng Yuan - 5th
generation patriarch of Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan and 8th Dan Chinese Wushu - is
regarded as one of the leading authorities on Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan. The family tradition
is carried forward by Grand Master Fu's son Qing Quan (James) Fu
(6th generation Yang Family Tai Chi), 7th Dan Chinese Wu Shu.
Instructor Chris Morrow - is a tuti of Grandmaster Fu Sheng
Yuan and as such has been personally trained in the family art.
Chris has been teaching Tai Chi in the Central Coast area for the
past 17 years, and has won numerous gold medals in international
competitions in China, most recently the 9th World Grand Wushu
Festival, Shanghai 2008.
