Islam in China: Pictures: Grandmaster Wang Ziping


Yes, the legendary Chinese Martial Arts Grandmaster Wang Ziping (1881-1973) was a Muslim. The history of “Muslim” Martial Arts in China is a fascinating subject. I will post on this subject sometime in the future insha’Allah. The descendants of Grandmaster Wang Ziping now live in USA and still practice and teach Martial Arts but I do not know if they are Muslims or not. Can any one confirm if his descendants are Muslims? Insha’Allah I will also do a post on Grandmaster Wang Ziping in the future.

  4. Great Grand Master Wang Zi-Ping’s family and legacy continues on to this day. Although his daughter, Grand Master Wang, Ju-Rong, died in 2005, his grand daughters and son in-law carry on his martial arts and healing traditions in both Canada and the United States.

    More information on Great Grand Master Wang Zi-Ping’s family and legacy can be found at under history and lineage. Links to his granddaughter’s web sites are also given.
