About Master Anthony Nan Jie Ho

Grandmaster Ho, Anthony Nan Jie, born in 1937, Shanghai, China, started to learn Kong‐fu when he was a teenager. He studied Luohanquan, Jingangquan, Xing Yi, Yang Style Taijiquan, and Chen’s Pao Chui. Later, he focused on studying Taijiquan and determined to seek out the true meaning of it. In 1965, introduced by a mutual friend, Master Ho met the elder Master Pei Zu Yin and become very close. From that first meeting until 1979, they exchanged their knowledge of Kong‐fu and

researched the Taijiquan together. Master Pei called Ho “Kung‐

fu friend” and, with great respect, Ho called Master Pei “teacher”. (Master Pei is a 2nd generation master from Wu Style Taijiquan, having studied with the founder, Master Wu Jian Quan.)

Since 1979 when Master Ho immigrated to USA, he’s been continuously doing his own Taijiquan research and proving “React to nature in a natural way” (Yìng Wù Zì Rán) of the ultimate Taijiquan Theory.
