Curzon Hall Yang Taiji Inheritance Celebration

Posted on: 21/06/2023
On June 18, 2023, students and instructors at Pei Lei Wushu Association gathered together at the majestic Curzon Hall with Shifu Alice and Shifu James Fu to celebrate a significant moment in the school’s 30 year history.
It was a celebration of Shifu Alice’s 50 years in martial arts practice and, for the first time and after many years of consideration, Shifu Alice has decided to accept disciples into her Yang Style Taijiquan Lineage. Her first group of disciples, Ben Ng, Sherman Mak, Angela Mak, Mitch Brown and Krista Brennan, have become 6th Generation Yang Taijiquan disciples, to carry on the tradition, knowledge and heritage of this important martial art.
The celebration and ceremony was an event rarely seen in Australia, and a moment that those who witnessed will remember for many years to come. Shifu James Fu was kind enough to travel all the way from China to witness the event and preside over the ceremony. He witnessed and confirmed the connection between the Fu family inheritance and Pei Lei Wushu Association’s new disciples.
In the words of Senior Instructor and long time student Clifford Quan:
“We were privileged to have witnessed an impressive traditional discipleship ceremony at last night’s function. Congratulations to our five distinguished coaches of the Peilei Wushu school, Ben, Sherman, Angela, Mitch and Krista, who are now the first group of disciples of our respectful Shifu Alice Dong on the succession of the Yang tai chi quan lineage (the 6th generation) to ensure continuation of inheritance and promotion of the Yang Taijiquan in Australia. Sifu Fu Qing Quan chaired the ceremony and endorsed the succession of the Yang Taijiquan lineage.”

The Master of Taichi — James Fu (Fu Qingquan)

At the age of five, inspired and instructed by both his grandfather Fu Zhongwen and his father Fu Shengyuan, he began to learn Taijiquan. Since then, his reputation and acclaim has blossomed in both China and around the world as one of the inheritors of the national intangible cultural heritage, Yang Style Taijiquan. Coupled with his talent in martial arts and unique teaching style, he has gained the reputation of “The Young Master of Tai Chi”.

Included in his formidable list of accomplishments and titles are:
– Chairman of the World Yongnian Taijiquan Federation
– Dean of Australia Fu Shengyuan International Taiji Academy
– Expert judge in the CCTV Martial Conference
– Privileged lecturer among the masters in Chinese Martial Lectures
– Master of Yang Style 85-movement Traditional Taijiquan
– Visiting instructor of Handan Academy
– Chief coach of Jingwu Shanghai Sports Federation and
– President of Hong Kong Taijiquan Association.

Since the late 1980s, at the invitation of foreign friends, he spread and taught Taijiquan in more than 40 countries and regions in Europe, Asia, America, Africa, and Oceania, together with his grandfather and his father. In the past 20 years, with a strong sense of responsibility and mission, Fu Qingquan began to think about the prospects and further development of Taijiquan, and reinforced the subtle relationship between Taijiquan and Taichi culture, and the positive influence of practicing Taijiquan on physical and mental health.

With more than 40 years experience, Fu Qingquan has his own ways of practicing, teaching and understanding Taijiquan, and his unique and humorous teaching style has attracted a large number of people from all over the world to follow him and learn Taijiquan from him. In order to promote Taijiquan and spread Taiji culture, Fu Qingquan has done his best to be the real master of Tai Chi, and has become a profound communicator and outstanding instructor of the Yang Style Taijiquan.
