XiYi XianSheng 希夷先生 – The First Promoter of Taiji
Many Taiji Quan practitioners believe that Zhang SanFeng 張三丰 created Taiji Quan. However, this is not true. Taiji was existed long before Zhang SanFeng’s teachings. Actually, the popular diagramatic Taiji symbol and the internal martial art Taiji Quan were first revealed to the general public through the teachings of Zhang SanFeng’s grandmaster, XiYi XianSheng ChenTuan 希夷先生陳摶, who wrote more than ten books on the Yijing, face reading, and immortal alchemy.
