164.
ZHU FAMILY TEACHING: ZHUJIAJIAO. This style is popular in Xingning in Guangdong Province. Some of the known routines include:
Sanbujian (3 Step?)
Dane
Shaungquan (Double Fists)
Huaquan (Flower Fist)
Jianliquan (Arrow ?)

The origin of this style is unclear although it is agreed that it originated in Guangdong. One story claims that two warriors of little skill named Zhu and Wang journeyed to Foshan to study. When they returned, they shared their newly developed skills with many villagers and it spread as a folk style of kung fu
The other story attributes it to a Ming rebel under Qing dynasty rule named Ling Zhi Si. Like one of the Hung Gar creation myths, the style was named after the first emperor of the Ming dynasty. Hung Gar used his formal name of this emperor (Hungmo in Cantonese). This style used his family name, which was Zhu Yuan Zhang (Burr 65).

Please forgive the errors. I found 164 styles and my numbering at the end was not as accurate as I would have wished. I just wanted to post all this a one time.
Regards,
Steve
