Styles: Changquan, Xingyiquan.

Han Ching-Tan is famous for his exceptional skills in several long fist styles (jiao men, mei hua, shaolin), xingyiquan, and chin-na (seizing and controlling). Master Han trained as a first generation student at the Central Guoshu Institute during the 1920s. He was also trained in Yang Family taijiquan under third generation master, Yang Cheng Fu. With the Communist take over of China, Master Han was among the many wushu masters to relocate to Taiwan. In Taiwan he continued to teach long fist, xingyiquan, taijiquan, and his chin-na skills. He was known to be an open teacher willing to share his knowledge of guoshu. His skills caught the eye of an American living in Taiwan during the 1960s, Robert Smith. Mr. Smith published a book on famous Taiwanese wushu masters called Chinese Boxing. In this book, Master Han Ching Tan was among those featured.
