My Jong Law Horn
Grand Master Yip, Ye-Ting

















Grand Master Yeh,Ye-Ting, came from Chuong Hsien of Hopei and
was born in the times of Emperor Kwang Shiu of the Ching Dynasty.
He started learning My Jong Law Horn, the family legacy, from his
father at the age of seven. By the time he was fourteen he had
become already well versed in the art. However, to further his
training, his father sent him to learn under his uncle,Yeh, Shai-Tsun
who was  a talented kung fu master of Northern China. An intelligent
and dedicated practitioner, Master Yeh was reminded by his uncle
“The more sweat now, the less blood later”. Intensely gratified that he
had found a successor, the old master taught Master Yeh all his skills
within a few years. When Master Yeh reached the age of twenty-four,
upon the instructions of his uncle, he became the chief of guards in
the Victory Security Service of the Hopei Province. It was a time of
segmentalization of the country by the warlords after the collapse of
the Ching Dynasty. Civil wars were a constant threat, and across the
north-eastern parts and within and beyond the Great Wall, bandits
spread like plague.. Unthreatened by Master Yeh's youthful
appearance, bandits tried to attack his guarded consignments. Upon
experiencing Master Yeh's mastery of My Jong Law Horn, it took them
little time to learn to refrain from action at the mere sight of the
"Victory" banner.
After the proprietor of the Victory Security Service died, and as
highway robberies dwindled away, Master Yeh grew tired of his job. It
so happened that General Huang Wei-hsin of Peking was re-
organizing his troops to fight the northern war-lords at the time, and
was determined to make martial arts part of the army training, he
came to hear of Master Yeh, and secured his services as the chief
instructor of the First Company. On his promotion to commander of
the Peking Army he appointed Master Yeh as the army
chief instructor.
Master Yeh was given three promotions within a span of three years,
and stayed on in his job for another seven years. General Huang
subsequently quitted to work under General Chang Hsieh-liang, son of
General Chang Jor-lin. Having held his job for three years, Master Yeh
resigned on the pretext of family commitments. After a while,
however, he was again courted by General Chang Chung-chuang of
the Shantung Provincial Army, who appointed him as his army
instructor. Having served there for two years he resigned upon
General Chang's death, and migrated southwards to Shanghai on his
own. He associated with the Central Ching Wu Athletic Association in
Shanghai. After a short time he was transferred to Hong Kong and
became the Head Instructor of Kung fu class in the South China
Athletic Association, one of the biggest Athletic Association in Hong
Kong.
At the same time, the grand master of Eagle Claw - Lau, Fat-Mong and
the grand master of Monkey Style - Kunt, Dok-Hoi also moved to Hong
Kong from Northern China, they became good friends and people in
Hong Kong addressed them as the "Three Tigers from the North".

At the outbreak of the Second World War, Master Yeh moved on to
Guangzhou Wan where he taught at the Cosmopolitan Lion Dance
Institute and the Sze Yeng New Martial Arts Centre. After the war, he
was invited again by the members of the South China Athletic
Association to return to his post in Hong Kong. He remained as Head
Instructor of the Kung fu class at the South China Athletic Association
for nearly thirty years, within which period he turned out a stream of
students. He also taught at the West Camp Police Headquarter and
won many followers from the Police Force. Through all those years he
never lacked diligence in the training of his students. His end came all
too soon at the age of seventy. He died in December, 1962,
surrounded by his devoted and heart-broken students at his bedside.
He was buried in the Tsuen Wan Permanent Cemetery. Buried with
him was the life he had as a renowned master of My Jong Law Horn
Kung Fu, but not the profound grief from the loss of this great master!

Grand Master Yeh's death did not mark his end to posterity. His
student T.Y.Liu is still teaching the art at the South China Athletic
Association in Hong Kong, C.K.Yee at the Ching Wu Athletic
Association. Master Yeh's skills are also perpetuated overseas.
Among the promoters of his arts abroad are C.H.Marr in Toronto,
Raymond K.Wong in Los Angeles, California, Johnny Lee in Louisiana
and Texas, Alex Kwok in Calgary, Canada, Hilton Tam in Ohio, and
also, Master Yeh's grand students are all over the world now and their
propagation of My Jong Law Horn abroad will bring another chapter in
the history of this extraordinary martial art.
Tai Chi Praying Mantis
Grand Master Chiu, Jok-Kui

















Tai Chi Praying Mantis is one of the four original styles of the basic Praying
Mantis form created in the early 17th century by Wang Lang, a superior
swordsman from Shandong Province. The names of the four original styles
are based on the particular symbol each disciple [of Wang Lang] chose for
his school (Chi Shing or Seven Stars, Mei Hua or Plum Blossom, Tai Chi or
Yin Yang and Empty Symbol). Thus, "Tai Chi" Praying Mantis was so named
from Ho, Chu Zan's selection of the tai chi symbol to represent his branch.
This style has since become prevalent in places such as Korea, Hong Kong,
Vietnam, and North America. While not strictly a consequence of the
naming, the system does combine the "soft" (internal) philosophy of tai chi
chuan with the "hard" (external) fighting style of the Northern Shaolin
system. Praying Mantis Kung Fu imitates the controlling actions of the
praying mantis and the elusive footwork of the monkey. It applies the
circular movements of tai chi chuan to deflect an incoming attack and turn
the force of the opponent against them. This style executes interconnected
close and long-range techniques including punches, low and high kicks,
hooking and trapping hand combinations, and elbow and backhand strikes,
as well as some ground fighting techniques.

Its most famous progenitor is Zhao Zhu Xi, who is said to have taught (both
directly and indirectly) thousands of students during his lifetime in Vietnam
and Hong Kong, who have since spread to all corners of the globe. He was
given the (Cantonese) nickname Chuk Kai, meaning "Bamboo Creek", for a
famous battle he fought with bandits at that location. Also known as
Grandmaster Chiu Jok-Kui. He was noted across the globe for his martial
arts prowess. Grandmaster Chiu strove for more than 60 years to develop
the System through the culimination of his personal expertise in physical
development, self-defense, tai chi chuan, and Chinese medicine. These
efforts, plus the loyalty of his students, have resulted in one of the few
"complete" systems of martial arts
remaining in the world today.

Those students of Grandmaster Chiu, whom he encouraged to become
masters themselves, were strongly impressed with the need to continue t
he traditions he has set forth. Examples of his legacy -- including strict
training-room etiquette and simple, all-black uniforms -- continue today in
most of the descendant schools.
