Yang Pan-hou or Yang Banhou (楊班侯 Yáng Bānhóu 1837-1890) was an influential teacher of t'ai chi ch'uan (taijiquan) in Ch'ing dynasty China, known for his bellicose temperament.[1][2]

Biography[edit source | edit]

He was the senior son of Yang Lu-ch'an to survive to adulthood. Like his father, he was retained as a martial arts instructor by the Chinese Imperial family.[2][3] He eventually became the formal teacher of Wu Ch'uan-yu (Wu Quanyou), a Manchu Banner cavalry officer of the Palace Battalion.[2] Wu Ch'uan-yu's son, Wu Chien-ch'uan (Wu Jianquan), also a Banner officer, became known as the co-founder (along with his father) of the Wu-style t'ai chi ch'uan.[3] Yang Pan-hou's younger brother Yang Chien-hou was a well known teacher of Yang-style t'ai chi ch'uan as well.[2] Yang Pan-hou's son, Yang Shao-p'eng (1875-1938) was also a t'ai chi teacher.[3]

Yang Banhou taught Wang Jiao-Yu his father's Guang Ping Yang t'ai chi ch'uan form, Wang Jiao-Yu taught Kuo Lien Ying this original Yang style form.
