Yang Cheng Fu

Yang Cheng Fu (1886-1936) was the grandson of Yang Lu Chan and the standard bearer of Yang style Taijiquan. YCF was of the third generation and given credit for the creation of the large frame form; (family form). He was the first family member who started teaching Taijiquan to the general public. Before him, Taijiquan was mostly a closed family practice, or a one-to-one teacher-student relationship.

His innovations also included the elimination of the rapid movements of the form so that they could be practiced at a slow and even pace for the general public, who might not be that interested in the martial side of Taijiquan.
