Our Yang style Taijiquan teaching syllabus derives from the official lineage of Grandmaster Gu Lisheng, which was passed down from Gu Lisheng’s last indoor student, Master Chi Qingsheng. Grandmaster Gu Lisheng (Gu Luping) was a student of both Yang Shaohou and Yang Chengfu. However, he is recognized for his teachings of Yang Shaohou Taijiquan.
Master Chi Qingsheng is the last closed-door student and the lineage holder of Grandmaster Gu Lisheng, his lineage is called ‘The Yang family Taijiquan Shaohou lineage of Gu’s school.’ Master Chi Qingsheng has been teaching the Yang Shaohou old frame and Yang Shaohou’s small frame forms until today. Recently, he registered this Yang Shaohou old frame as a national cultural treasure to preserve this form and continue to spread it even further. Liang Dehua is an indoor student of Master Chi Qingsheng and a certified 6th generation indoor student of the lineage and representative of his school outside China.
