Hello, my name is Zhang Yun. Actually, Zhang is my family name, so in American style
speech, you can call me Yun Zhang. I was born in Beijing, China and lived there until 1989
when I moved to Reno, Nevada. After teaching martial arts in Reno for five years, I moved to
Princeton, New Jersey where I continued to conduct classes in martial arts. Currently, I live
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I have a new group of students. My Reno and Princeton
students continue to meet and practice on a regular basis. All of these groups are affiliated
with the Yin Cheng Gong Fa Association, of which I am President of the North American
Headquarters as well as the head instructor.
Since childhood, I have liked martial arts very much, and I enjoy being part of a martial arts
family and community. I am always interested in expanding my circle of martial arts friends
and practitioners and in promoting the benefits of the Yin Cheng Gong Fa training system.
The martial arts have a long history in China. Through succeeding generations, practitioners
have developed martial arts skills to a high level but the question of how best to pass along
these valuable skills in a fast-paced society, such as that of the United States and other
highly industrialized countries, is a difficult one indeed. In my opinion, the primary
requirement for an effective training system is efficiency. With such a system skills can be
developed even with the rigorous time constraints that typify modern-day life. Of course, the
system must also include knowledge that is authentic and well taught.
From my personal experience, I believe that Yin Cheng Gong Fa (YCGF) is such a training
system, based on traditional martial arts principles and ideally suited to contemporary
conditions. Developed by Great Master Wang Peisheng of Beijing, YCGF incorporates
many useful techniques. These techniques and the classic principles from which they
derive were passed down from several well-known masters to Master Wang. During more
than seventy years of study, practice, teaching, and research, Master Wang acquired the
highest level of skill in the use of martial arts techniques and precepts and systematically
summarized this traditional knowledge. He organized it into a complete and efficient
training system and has passed it on to his many disciples and students.
I began my study of martial arts as a teenager. I joined YCGF and studied Taiji, Bagua,
Xingyi, Tongbei,Tantui, Changquan, Chinese wrestling, and qigong with my Grandmaster
Wang Peisheng and my Master Luo Shuhuan. After 30 years of practice and teaching martial
arts and studying the history and traditional culture of China, I feel that martial arts training,
like that offered by YCGF, can yield many benefits. It not only provides a method of
self-defense but also promotes good health and the development of character. Additional
benefits include fun and good fellowship, along with others waiting to be discovered by
each practitioner. Join us. I hope that through YCGF, martial arts will become your good
friend and bring its benefits to your whole life.
