Fujian BaiHeTang 董木堯福建白鶴堂 was founded by the Grandmaster Dong MuYao. He was taught by his father and grandfather in a hand-down family tradition. Along with his deep-rooted Kungfu traditions and disciplines, Grandmaster Dong is also a master practitioner of White Crane traditional medicine, specialized in Tie-Da-Shun-Shang 鐵打損傷, "bones and joints fitting and external and internal wounds healing."

As fate has it, Grandmaster Dong was alone in Taiwan doing a short trip when the Mainland China fell to Chinese communists, he and his family were separated.

As the situation of conflicts between Taiwan and Mainland China evolved, and the family tradition could not be kept, Grandmaster Dong founded the Fujian BaiHeTang, teaching Fujian BaiHeQuan ("Fujian White Crane Kungfu") to the public, and performing healing with Tie-Da-Shun-Shang. Now, age 85 at 2004, Grandmaster Dong is well and retired in Taipei, Taiwan.

The origin of Dong family's BaiHeQuan may not be traced, it was told by the family that the most of teaching was originated from Fang QiNiang 方七娘:
