Dashi (Grand Master) Jiang Jianye

Dashi Jiang has made it his life’s mission to not only continually develop himself as a martial artist but to also dedicated himself to the teaching of authentic Chinese martial arts here in America.

Dashi Jiang Jianye was born China in 1950.  He began studying martial arts the age of 5, learning from the most well known masters (including Yu Mingwei, Yu Hai and many others).  He received his BA and MA degrees from Qufu University and Shanghai Physical Education Institute.  A national and international judge in China and the U.S., he is also a master calligrapher.

Dashi Jiang Jianye is one of the most respected martial arts instructors currently teaching in the US. In addition to an unparalleled knowledge in the martial arts, it is Dashi’s personality which people cite as his finest quality. Soft spoken, warm and passionate, Dashi exemplifies the finest qualities in a teacher that a student could hope for.

I have seen Grandmaster Jiang turn students into gold medalists in Taichi and Kungfu, but more importantly, encourage them to always do their personal best in all things. He is the consummate teacher, someone absolutely worthy of his well earned title: Grandmaster.
