Master Sui is a highly skilled master residing in Beijing, China. He is a fourth generation martial arts descendant of Dong Haichuan, having trained for many years under Li Zi Ming. Master Sui is a member of the Beijing Baguazhang Research Association and Beijing Meihuazhuang Research Association.
Sui Yun Jiang was born in Beijing on November 18, 1945. From an early age he studied martial arts with famous masters including Han Qi Chang, Li Zi Ming, Wang Zhi Zhong, and Zhao Shi De. His specialties are Baguazhang and Meihuazhuang. The famous third generation Baguazhang master Li Zi Ming once wrote words of praise for him: "Yun Jiang is one of my most outstanding apprentices in the fourth Baguazhang generation." For many years now, he has taught a great many students from both China and overseas including professional athletes and martial arts enthusiasts from the US, Japan, Russia, South Korea, Thailand, Australia, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden, and Singapore.
In 1990 he was invited by the Soviet Central Athletics Bureau and Moscow Athletics Bureau to teach martial arts in the Soviet Union (Russian Federation). During his four-year stay in the Soviet Union, he participated in many martial arts conferences (forums), and on the Soviet Central TV station introduced Chinese traditional culture on the program Chinese Traditional Martial Arts. He was invited by Dr. Ma Liang Wen, a famous Soviet expert on Chinese studies, to participate in a Russian-organized international academic conference. In this conference, he reported on functions of the human body and modern science and was given favorable comments from many international experts. On the Russian International Radio Broadcasting Station he participated in an exchange of Chinese and Russian traditional cultures.
After he returned to China he participated in the Third International Wushu Exchange Tournament in Dalian and was selected as the vice chairman of the event. He also personally competed in the tournament and won a gold medal and his apprentices won silver and bronze medals. In 1997, the chairman of the Sino-Japanese Martial Arts Alliance, Mr. Zuo Teng Jin Bing Wei, hired him as a consultant for the Japanese Baguazhang Research Association. In that same year, the Japanese Baguazhang Research Association and the Japanese Gai Zhi Company came to Beijing in order to make a video series of Sui Yunjiang's Baguazhang for distribution in the Japanese market. There have been many articles about him and photographs published in Japan's Martial King Magazine, as well as periodicals in other nations such as Switzerland.
In recent years, he has been prominently featured in many well-known publications. In 1996, he was published in the China Modern Wushu Masters Dictionary. In 1998 was published in the American Who's Who Around The World, The Essence of China Encyclopedia, The Essence of Chinese Wushu List, and the Chinese Scientist article, "China Expert Resource Century Treasure." In early 1999 he was published in the Chinese Expert Name Dictionary and Chinese Figures of the Century. In the fall of 1999, he went to South Korea to teach martial arts. He is currently instructing students again in Beijing.
