Yang Shouzhong


Yáng Shǒuzhōng

Yang, Sau Chung (1910-1985), was the eldest son of Grandmaster Yang Cheng Fu. He started learning his family style when he was 8 years old under the strict supervision of his father. At 14, he started to assist his father in teaching Tai chi chuan. By the age of 19, he was travelling throughout China with his father to assist in teaching Tai chi.

In truth, many people who have claimed to learned from Yang, Cheng Fu actually learned from Yang, Sau Chung. In 1949, he moved to Hong Kong, and he taught privately at his home until his death in 1985.

His dedication to Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan was as equally committed as his father, grandfather Yang Chien Hou, and his great grandfather Yang Lu Chan; and, as a result, he achieved one of the highest levels.

Yang Sau Chung passed on the family transmission to his First Disciple, Ip Tai Tak, (1958) and his three daughters, Amy - Tai Yee, Mary - Ma Lee and Agnes -- Yee-Li....
