Jeffrey Yuen trained under his adopted grandfather, the late Daoist Master Yu Wen (1872-1981), who was a lineage holder of the Daoist martial arts system known as Wu Xing Quan (Five Element Fist), an internal and monastic style from Mt. Hua. Master Yu Wen's extensive knowledge encompassed the classics, rites and liturgies, healing arts, and divination, which he imparted to Jeffrey. By the age of 16, Jeffrey was allowed to openly practice and serve the community, marking the beginning of his professional journey.

In addition to his training in Daoism, Jeffrey studied Chinese herbal medicine under Master Gong Song-Liu, a eunuch for the last two emperors of the Qing Dynasty and an apprentice to the imperial medical physicians. Master Gong's profound knowledge of Chinese medicine was transmitted to Jeffrey over eight years. At the age of 100, Master Gong returned to China, feeling deeply satisfied with his teachings to Jeffrey.
