Investigation of the History of Cantonese Opera -Exerp #2

Exerp Translation by Yip Chun?
"In the years of Yung Cheng (Manchu emperor, 1723-1736), Cheung Ng of Wu Pak, also known as Tan Sau Ng?, brought his skills to Foshan and organized the Hung Fa Wui Koon (now the Chinese Artist Association)"; (author's note: Hung Fa Wui Koon is literally, "Red Flower Union"). And from the same book: "Besides being very accomplished in Chinese opera, Cheung Ng was especially proficient in martial arts. His one Tan-Sau was peerless throughout the martial arts world."
