The leader of the group, Master Xiaoping Yu (pron. SHE-OW-PING YOO) is a successor as leader of Mulan Martial Arts or Mulan Quan or Mulan Style of Tai Chi. Mulan Quan, named after a brave young woman who took her aging father’s place in battles defending their country, is also called “Tai Chi for Woman.” The Disney animated film, Mulan, popularized her legendary story.

Master Yu has combined Mulan Quan with martial arts and dance, and created a new form of performing art -- “Mulan Martial Arts Sport Dance. “ She teaches in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and other areas in China. Yu leads her team, sometimes over 100 women, to compete or perform in various national events. She is also a leader in several organizations that promote Mulan Quan and Mulan Martial Arts Sport Dance.
