From the former he learned the old frame routine as well as the related weapons exercises, while from the latter, he learned the new frame routine and the single forms of wrestling and catching technique.

And later on, he was admitted to be the disciple by master Zhang Zhan Ming, who was then called Guang Zhou king of Eagle Claws Boxing. Then in 1985, soon after he returned to Hong Kong, he began to teach “Buddha’s Warrior Moving and Motionless Breath Control Exercises” and other kung fu..

   In 2001, he went to Chen Jia Gou village of Wen County in He Nan Province, where he learned Chen style Tai Ji boxing and the related Tai Ji breath control exercises from master Wang Xi An. He was then accepted as the 51th disciple by master Wang Xi An. And meanwhile, he also learned such weapon as Spring and Autumn broad sword from master Chen Zheng Lei.
