Our Late Grand Master Huang Sheng Shyan
Watch his fight video

Huang Sheng-Shyan was born in 1910 in Minhou County of the Fujian province in Mainland China. At the age of 14 he began his life-long career into the ‘Martial Arts’ by learning Fujian/Fuzhou White Crane from Xie Zhong-Xian, in which he first became renowned. In 1947 he resettled in Taiwan where he became a disciple of Cheng Man-Ching. Yang Cheng-Fu as the grandson of the Yang style founder had been Cheng Man-Ching’s teacher. It was into this tradition that Master Huang committed himself for the next 45 years.

At Grand Master Cheng Man Ch’ings injunction Master Huang immigrated to Singapore in 1956 and then in the 60’s moved to Malaysia with the expressed purpose of propagating the Art of Taijiquan.

Grand Master Cheng Man-Ching


Soong Shen Five principles


Ever since the so called taiji Classics were publicised in the early 20th century, well known Masters have agreed that they were authentic and had encouraged practitioners to follow the Classics' teachings. These Masters include Yang Cheng Fu, Cheng Man Ching & Master Huang. Master Huang taught us that following the Classics is the fastest way to achieve his quality of taiji. This, except for a few very gifted persons, is extremely hard to follow as the Classics were written in classical Chinese and convoluted with Daoist ideals and philosophies. If practitioners deviate from the Classics, what they learn will be a form of 'taiji' which has very limited potential and will eventually stagnate in a 'bull's horn'. We all make mistakes and geniuses of master Huang's caliber is extremely hard to come by. Some may be pretty good at the beginning but unfortunately lost the way and spent many years in the wilderness, wondering where it have gone wrong. This is very common among taiji practitioners. Persevere and keep on learning, if fortunate enough, from sincere teachers is the only way to improve for us normal people.
