Hao Weizhen (1842–1920), or Hao Wei-chen, was a Chinese t'ai chi ch'uan (taijiquan) teacher. Hao became a well known and influential teacher of Wu Yu-hsiang's style of t'ai chi ch'uan, his teacher Li I-yu was Wu Yu-hsiang's nephew.[1] Hao passed the art to his son and grandson, who became respected teachers in their turn, so that the style is sometimes now known as Wu/Hao style.[1] One of Hao's most famous students was Sun Lu-t'ang.[2]
