 +== About
 +Song Shuming lived in Beijing during the early years of the 20th Century. He practiced an ancient Daoist martial art said to have been passed down through his family from one of his ancestors called Song Yuanqiao , who was a disciple of Xu Xuanping during the Tang Dynasty. Song Shuming was an enigma in the Beijing martial arts world at that time, and reputed to have considerable martial ability, making him a formidable opponent.
 +
 +It is said that the martial art he practiced was somewhat similar to Yang style Taijiquan, but had not been passed down via Chen Changxing. This made his style quite unique and also gives credibility to the stories that suggest modern Taijiquan has evolved from a very ancient Daoist martial arts system. ​

-== About+== Man of Mystery
 Song Shuming was a famous Taiji Quan master who was in Beijing during the early part of Twentieth Century. Almost everything about him, his lineage and his own personal life, were shrouded in mystery. He claimed he was the descendent of Song Yuanqiao, and that his Taiji Quan came from that family lineage. There was no evidence back then or today that supports those claims. Song Shuming was a famous Taiji Quan master who was in Beijing during the early part of Twentieth Century.
