History
Meihua Quan (Chinese: 梅花拳; literally "Plum Flower Fist") is a very common name in kung fu.
Some Meihuaquan disciples believe that there are 100 generations of masters before the 20 after Ming Dynasty. During Qing Dynasty people who practiced this style were involved in various uprisings, like Wang Lun in 1774, Feng Keshan in 1813 and Zhao Sanduo in 1900 Boxer Uprising. (Meihuaquan was particularly linked with the early phases of the Boxer Uprising.)
Unfortunately there aren't other sources who confirm that the style was attributed to Wu Mei. Feng Keshan is an Eighth Generation. The legend of Wu Mei came from another style named Wumeihuaquan or Wumeipai and are founding also in some tale of Yongchunquan, a field completely distant to Feng Keshan history and Meihuaquan.
