Tung Hu Ling

Master Tung Hu Ling, born in 1917. From a very young age, he was known to possess high intelligence and an inquisitive mind. He was particularly fond of martial arts, and he studied under many distinguished teachers. A strong foundation of Taichi skill was laid by his father, Grandmaster Tung Ying Kit. He also had the benefit of being personally tutored by his father’s teacher, Taichi Grandmaster Yang Chenfu.

Responding to his father’s call for the promulgation of Taichi, he came to Hong Kong in 1947 to help in the running of the “Tung Ying Kit Taichichuan Gymnasium”.

In 1954, leaders of the Chinese community in Thailand invited Grandmaster Tung Ying Kit to tour the country and teach their members taichichuan. Master Tung Hu Ling undertook the first teaching tour there, which was met with great enthusiasm. He established the Thailand chapter of the “Tung Ying Kit Taichichuan” and subsequently the number of students expanded rapidly.

The following year, Grandmaster Tung Ying Kit toured South East Asia, where he was met with special welcoming activities organized by the students. These included a motorcade through the city centre. In the meantime, Master Tung Hu Ling had been extending his teaching activities to include Singapore and Malaysia. This explains how many of the Yang School Taichichuan practitioners in Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand could trace their lineage back to the first students of the two Grandmasters in these places.

When Grandmaster Tung Ying Kit passed away in 1961, Master Tung Hu Ling inherited his father’s mission. Together with his sister Jasmine and his son Kai Ying, they continued to promote and extend taichichuan in Hong Kong, Macau and South East Asia.

In February of 1957, Master Tung Hu Ling produced his famous book “Applications Of Taichichuan”. There were pictures of him practicing with his brother Junling (the third son of Grandmaster Tung Ying Kit) in the demonstration of the various forms and applications of the Taichi martial art. The book was enthusiastically and widely received by people practicing Taichichuan.
