George Hu Master George Hu (Hu Ling)

Master George Ling Hu was born in Chung King, China in 1942. Both his parents were physicians of western medicine. His family moved to Taiwan in the late 1940's because of the Communist revolution.

At the age of 11, Hu Ling began his study of martial arts under Master Han Ching-tang who was teaching at the Cheng Kao Middle School in Taipei. From Master Han, Hu learned several types of Shaolin Temple boxing plus Chin-na and the Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan. After graduating in 1960, he began studying Yangjia Michuan Tai Chi Chuan from Master Wang Yen-nien . Later he studied the character system under Master Shung Gen-shun.

Master Hu began teaching martial arts here in the United States soon after his arrival in 1969. From 1973 through 1977 he operated a studio in Downer's Grove, Illinois. He also taught at the University of Chicago, Governor's State University, Chicago's Chinatown, Roosevelt U., Illinois State University and the University of Illinois. In 1977 Master Hu left the Chicago area for Houston, Texas, where he continued to teach part-time until his retirement from the petroleum industry in 1992.

He now teaches professionally full-time at his studio and several other locations including the Jung Center and the Methodist Hospital. In addition, Master Hu travels regularly providing instructional seminars in several locations including Michigan, Illinois, and Montana. He has also produced 4 instructional videos on Tai Chi sword, Seated Chi Kung, Swimming Dragon Chi Kung, and Tai Chi Chuan (13 Kinetic Movements).
