郝月如師公

Hao Yue Yu (1877-1935) His name at birth was Hao Wen Kui, but was later also known as Hao Yue Yu. He lived in the West Street, Roeng Nean County, Kwang Fu City, Herbei Province. He was the second son of Hao Oeizheng. He practiced martial art with his father since he was young. Later on he studied literature with Li Ye Yi who was his grand master and often watched his grand master practice martial arts. He also often listened to his grand master explaining the principle of Taichiquan. Watching and listening to his grandmaster repeatedly while being taught by his father carefully and closely for many years benefited him immensely. After practicing hard, his martial art skills got to a very high level and finally became one of the grand master levels.

During his middle age, Hao Yue Yu made his living as a trader. After Hao Oeizheng passed away, the Roeng Nean Secondary school invited Hao Yue Yu to teach Wu (Hao) style Taichiquan at the school.

In 1928, he became the Master of Kua Su Kuan, a Chinese martial arts camp, in Roeng Nean county. In 1930, he was invited to teach Wu (Hao) Taichiquan in many government units such as the Supreme Court of Nan Ging City, the Budget Ministry (Later was changed to the Finance Ministry), Jong Eien University, etc. In August 1935, Hao Yue Yu fell sick and died in Nan Ging City.

Hao Yue Yu was very talented in both martial arts skills and the theory of Taichiquan. Using his real experiences in fighting and his academic knowledge, he wrote many books such as the Important Points of Wu (Hao) Taichiquan, the Form and the Hands Pushing of Wu (Hao) Taichiquan, 15 methods of Hand Pushing, and The experiences of Hao Yue Yu. They could all be considered as the improved foundations of the Taichi Theory. They were all popular among all the Taichiquan practitioners.
