Lineage

About

Yang Yuting (1887–1982) was a teacher of Wu-style t'ai chi ch'uan. He was Wang Maozhai's primary disciple and studied with him from 1916 to 1940.

He began training in martial arts from the age of nine. He had a number of masters and learned Tan Tui, changquan, xingyiquan, baguazhang and Wu-style t'ai chi ch'uan.

He reformed his Wu-style training to make it more systematic and standardised the Wu-style t'ai chi he had learned from Wang Maozhai. After his death he became the leader of the Wu-style Beijing group.

He was a respected teacher in Beijing for 75 years and at the time of his death vice-chairman of Beijing Martial Arts Association (北京市武术运动协会副主席), a highly prestigious position within Beijing martial art community. Wang Pei-sheng, Li Jing-wu and Li Bing-ci were all his students.
