Deep Taiji (Tai Chi)
Sifu Qian Xinyu (Todd Qian). This was the first teacher to go in depth with the principles of Tai Chi Quan. Later, Mantak Chia, George Xu, Volker Jung and others would provide the basis of what would become the PowerPlus Martial Art Secrets.
Grandmaster Joe Martin was a personal
student of Qian Xinyu (Todd Qian), son of Grandmaster Qian Timing. Qian Xinyu
and his brother had been learning Taiji from their father since early childhood.
Grandmaster Qian Timing is a 7 Duan high level Taiji master, the twelfth generation lineage holder of Wudang Dan Pai and award-winner for many research findings and competitions in internal martial arts from China. Qian Timing is a 3rd Generation Master the Changzhou branch of Wu Dang Free-Step Taijiquan.
There were originally 9 branches of the Wudang style (Zi, Zhu, Ji, Fu, Jian, Qi, Fu, Chou and Dan). Wudang Dan is the 9th branch, and the only one to survive today (as far as we know). Dan means elixir and refers to the fusion of of Jing. Mr. Qian is the 12th generation successor of the style and can trace the lineage all the way back to the founder, Zhang San-Feng. Mei-hui, Qian Timing's inside student, has processed a translation of the lineage and it is listed in Vol. 29, No.3 issue of T'AI CHI magazine.
The most recent lineage is that Mr. Qian was taught by Yang Kui-Shan (1903-1977), also knwon as Lin Fu who was one of the successors of General Li Jing Lin (1884-1931), also known as Fang Chen.
Wu Na Chang (Mr. Qian's student who gave me this lineage) credits General Li with the current look of the style. He was a very famous general/warlord in the 19th century. He was especially known for his swordsmanship.
The main distinguishing feature of Wudang Dan Pai is the sword forms (there are 2, a short form with 39 moves and a long form with 140 moves). There are 3 open hand forms. These open hand forms were created from a blend of Yang tai chi, Bagua and Chin Na (or Shin Ye). The flowing hand movements come from the Tai chi. The free step footwork comes from Bagua. The straight-in strikes come from Xing I.
Zhang San-Feng: Originator
According to T'ai Chi Magazine, volume 29, no. 1, the Yang Kui-Shan lineage of Wudang Dan Pai claims direct descent of Zhang SanFeng. Its 9th generation lineage holder was Sung Wei-I, who was the first non-Taoist to hold the lineage. Sung passed the lineage to Li Jinglin (for the 10th). Li passed the lineage to Yang Kui-Shang (for the 11th), who passed it on to Qian Timing (for the 12th).
