At a very young age (9 years old), Grandmaster Wei started learning Wu Shu from his grandfather, a prominent Wu Shu master, in Beijing, China. His grandfather taught him family style Wu Shu and massage techniques that are private only to the family. He continued his Wu Shu education for several years under the guidance of grandfather honing his skills. Later (around 13 years old), Wei Wentao began further his Wu Shu training from Wu Shu master, Li Zong Ru. He studied with Li Zong Ru for a number of years perfecting his skills and Wu Shu knowledge.
Wei Wentao later went on to further his Wu Shu education by studying Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi from Grandmaster Liu Gaoming. Liu Gaoming was a noted 5th generation of Yang Style Tai Chi Quan master. He studied many years under Liu Gaoming becoming one of his favored and most skilled students. His Tai Chi education consisted of hand forms, broadsword (Knife), Straight Sword, Acupressure, Push Hands and Fighting Applications. Wei Wentao is a 6th generation Yang Style Tai Chi Grand Master.
Grandmaster Wei immigrated to the US several years ago. He has taught numerous Wu Shu and Tai Chi classes and seminars in the Massachusetts and Connecticut areas for over 16 years. Grandmaster Wei holds a bachelor’s degree from a university in Beijing, China.
