Su Yu Zhang passes on

Just had the news Master Su Yu Zhang passed over last week, he was expert in several northern mantis arts and Bajiquan, and someone who fought for real a lot by all accounts.

Master Su was definitely talented. He learned from some of the best Praying Mantis people in Taiwan and knew how to use his art for real. Very sorry to learn of his passing. I hope he had some students who could carry on his legacy.

Very sad to hear. :( He was one of the last to learn qinggong (lightness skill), and he was a CMA maniac for sure. His mantis system was collected from almost all mantis schools in Taiwan, plus he had a big role in Liu Yunqiao's school.

He was very famous in Japan, too (even influencing video games). His most famous disciple there was Matsuda Ryuichi of course, who passed away first.
