Chief Instructor's Bio: Grand Master Eddie Wu Kwong Yu
In 1937, Grand Master Wu Chien Chuan and his eldest son Grand Master Wu Kung Yi brought Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan into Hong Kong and established the Wu’s Tai Chi Chuan Academy, Hong Kong (HK Academy), which was located at Hennessy Road on the Hong Kong Island. Grand Master Wu Kung Yi succeeded as the third generation master in 1942 subsequent to the passing away of his father Grand Master Wu Chien Chuan.
To meet the rapidly increasing demand for Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan training Grand Master Wu Tai Kwei (first son of Grand Master Wu Kung Yi) established a branch of the HK Academy in Kowloon. Very soon it was found that the two centers were not adequate for accommodating the increasing number of students and a major restructuring of the training venues was called for. Two spacious units at Flats A & B on 14/F of 37 U Jordan Road, Kowloon, were then purchased in May 1956 and served as the headquarters of the HK Academy.
Grand Master Wu Kung Yi passed away in 1970 and his eldest son Grand Master Wu Tai Kwei succeeded as the fourth generation master and Chairman of the HK Academy in the same year. In the following years Grand Master Wu Tai Chi, Grand Master Wu Yan Hsia and Grand Master Wu Tai Sin chaired the HK Academy consecutively until 2005 when the 5th generation Master Eddie Wu Kwong Yu succeeded the chairmanship of the HK Academy and became Gatekeeper of the Wu Style of Tai Chi Chuan.
Grand Master Eddie Wu Kwong Yu is a highly respected international martial artist who has been vigorously promoting Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan to North America and Europe since 1972. Today there are official overseas branches of the Academy in Canada (Toronto, Fredericton, Vancouver), United States (Ann Arbor, New Jersey, Washington), England (London), Greece and Wales. To further promote the internationalization of Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, Grand Master Eddie Wu founded the “International Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan Federation” (www.wustyle.com) in Toronto, Canada in 1995. Under his leadership we shall continue to promote Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, both regionally and internationally.
