On January 29, 2005 the Grand Opening of the Zhi Cheng School of Northern Kung fu was held.  This day marked the
beginning of the first traditional kung fu school in Harlem, NY as well as the first Kung Fu school to be opened that is
officially affiliated with the
Yin Cheng Gong Fa Association.

The Grand Opening started with a Private Altar Ceremony to pay respect to Great Master
Wang Pei Sheng, the founder
of Yin Cheng Gong Fa who passed away last year on September 3, 2004. The Guest of Honor was Shifu
Zhang Yun, a
close indoor granddisciple of Master Wang Pei Sheng, who spoke about what Master Wang meant to the martial arts
world.  Master Zhang Yun explained how approximately 30 years ago at this time, was when he first met Master Wang Pei
Sheng.  His 1st disciple, Strider Clark, also spoke about how his training with Master Wang enhanced his life.

After Master Zhang Yun and Shifu
Strider Clark spoke, they then showed their respect to Master Wang by burning 3
incense and kowtowing 4 times. The Yin Cheng Gong Fa disciples then paid their respect with the same etiquette,
followed by any friends and martial friends related to the Yin Cheng family.

A brief break was held with dim sum served and the Lion Dance was performed to bless the school and bring good luck to
the new year.

Sifu
Clayton Shiu, the 16th Chair disciple under the Yin Cheng Gong Fa Family and a licensed acupuncturist, created
the Zhi Cheng School and the Harlem Healing Arts Wellness center.  The school is also the first
traditional kung fu school in Harlem, New York.

Traditional martial arts schools from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Delaware, and Maryland
gathered to pay respect to Great Master Wang and demonstrate their martial arts skills during the Grand Opening
following the Lion Dance.
