The International Tien Shan Pai Association is an organization devoted to the promotion and preservation of the Tien Shan Pai (天山派) style of Kuo shu (more commonly known as Kung Fu). The International Tien Shan Pai Association is based in Baltimore, Maryland, and is headed by Grandmaster Huang Chien-Liang (黃乾量), who is the 64th generation heir to the Tien Shan Pai system.

Currently, the Association sponsors seminars, produces instructional materials, and publishes a newsletter containing articles and information about the International Tien Shan Pai style. With the establishment of this website, we hope to make information about the Tien Shan Pai style more accessible to the public.

If you’re interested in learning more about Tien Shan Pai, we encourage you to become a member of the International Tien Shan Pai Association. Membership benefits include discounts on training materials and seminar fees, as well as a subscription to our newsletter.
