Fu ZhenSong (aka. Fu Chien-Kwan) was born in the village of MaPo, HeNan province, district of Xin-Yang. Initially he studied in a small school at Chen JiaGou so his first style was Chen Tai Chi. Auspiciously he began with Chen Yen-Si (Hwei-Jia). Chen was an 8th generation master. Yang Lu-Chan was Fu's KungFu uncle. Fu also began studying Bagua Zhang from Jia FengMing (QiShan) in Beijing. Jia had been a top student with Dong HaiChuan himself. In 1925 he was the head of the Tian Jin martial arts association. In 1929 he became the head instructor of the prestigious NanKing GuoShu Institute. The next year, 1929, Fu was invited by GuangDong's govenor Li Ji Xian to come south and teach martial arts so he took a post at the "Two Guangs" GuoShu Institute in GuangZhou. He was named one of the "Five Tigers south of the ChangJiang -YangTze." The other four were: Wan Lai Sheng, Gu Ru Zhang, Wai Lai Min, Li Xian Wu Wang Shao-Jou, and Kang De-Hai ). Besides being justly famous for his Tai Chi Spear and Sword he was an excellent performer of Xing Yi.
Known to protect the underdog against bullies he was well respected and worked as a banking security guard. He once used his spear skills to kill a bandit chief. Also he studied from his friend Yang Chen Fu and often compared the two Tai Chi styles he knew of Yang and Chen. He also knew Sun Lu Tang and exchanged information with him on the internal arts while Sun studied Wu Dang sword with him. Later he studied and conferred with the famous swordsman General Li JinLin. Through this association he was exposed to many fine martial artists and this aided in the development of his own style.
