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:
External Practice 外功 - building the external strength and skills:
Tools/Weapons 傢私: utilizing the external
equipments to build the internal and external strength
Internal Practice 內功 - enhancing internal organs' strength
and functions by practicing Qi 氣, Jing 勁, and forms with one-step-one-breathing
6 forms - Sleeping Crane 宿鶴拳, Calling Crane 鳴鶴拳,
Flying Crane 飛鶴拳, Preying Crane 食鶴拳,
Shaking Crane 震鶴拳, and Playing Crane 遊鶴拳
Two-person forms - Courting Crane 母公, and Fighting Crane 對打
