Ma Jiang Bao worked hard in promoting and furthering the teachings of the traditional Wu Family style of Tai Chi Chuan which he had learned from his mother and father. In 1986 he went to Europe with his father, Ma Yue Liang to teach the family art. He eventually moved to Rotterdam, Netherlands, where he continued to teach the Wu style of Tai Chi. He traveled to countries such as Germany, Spain, Great Britain, and South Africa to teach seminars on the family’s art.
