tai chi

Wu Ch'uan-yu started studying T'ai Chi Ch'uan in his capacity as an officer cadet of the Palace Battalion of the Ch'ing (Qing) dynasty's Imperial Guards under Yang Lu-ch'an (1799-1872) in 1850. He became a disciple of Yang's son, Yang Pan-hou (1837-1890) and was known as a specialist in the "soft" neutralisation of incoming attacks. He was given permission by the Yangs to teach his own students in 1870.
