Styles: Liu He Tanglangquan, Qixing Tanglangqquan.

Zhang Xian-San was a disciple of Ding Zi-Cheng. Zhang was among the many wushu masters to escape from Communist China with Chang Kai-Shek during the 1940s. In Taiwan, Zhang taught Liu He Tanglangquan to many of today's famous masters. He is also known to be the older kung fu brother of Liu Yun-Qiao. It is because of Zhang, Liu Yun-Qiao began to teach openly in Taiwan. Since Zhang was the elder brother of Liu Yun-Qiao, Liu referred his students to Zhang for instructions in six harmony mantis. It is also said that Zhang was schooled in some qixing tanglang and taught it to a few students. Zhang published several books on tanglangquan later in his life which are now considered to be classics on the Six Harmony Praying Mantis Style.
