Wu Rong (吴荣)
(1764 - 1839)
Wu Rong, was born in 1764 and was Wu Zhong’s daughter and only child. Since Wu Zhong transmitted a lot of his knowledge to his daughter, she rapidly became an accomplished martial artist and his father decided that her husband should have equal skills. When she was nearly 30 years old, in order to fulfil her filial piety, Wu Rong got married to an expert of HaiHe ChangQuan (海河长拳 : long fist from the HaiHe region) called Dai YueYi (戴月一) who was living in MengCun but was originating from WuDi (无棣) county of ShanDong province. It is said that Wu Zhong organised a martial art competition in order to find the best husband for his daughter, and that Dai YueYi was recruited in order to integrate the Wu family and give a descendant to Wu Zhong. Wu Rong and Dai YueYi had two sons called BangAn (邦安) and BangNing (邦宁). BangAn and BangNing were originally wearing the Wu Family name, but after the death of Dai YueYi, since the Dai Family had no other descendent, WuRong and her children staid in the Dai family and their posterity was not recorded.
Since WuRong was married to an expert in ChangQuan, she imported and combined some of the flourish techniques of her husband family style in the MengCun Baji Quan system. From that time, taolus like TaiZong Quan (太宗拳), TaiZu Quan (太祖拳), FeiHu Quan (飞虎拳) started to be taught in the Wu family Baji Quan system.
