Five Ancestors Fist - Wuzu Quan or Five_Ancestors
There are two versions of Wuzuquan’s history, with some putting the founding of the art around 1300 AD, while others put it as late as the 19th century. Five Ancestors has been
attributed variously to Chua Giok Beng (蔡玉明 -or- 蔡玉鳴) (pinyin: Cài Yùmíng) of Jinjiang near Quanzhou in Fujian in the second
half of the 19th century or to Bái Yùfeng, a famous 13th century monk from the original Henan Shaolin Temple in the North of China to whom Five Animals style and Hó
ngquán (洪拳) have also been attributed. The Bai branch has most of the history, principles and execution very differently than the other branches who are more familiar
to each other.
