both in the revolutionary period and in the current period, anarchism existed.
a lot of similarities are often pointed out between the chinese taoist tradition and anarchism as well, although rothbard in an incredible bout of ignorance said chinese 'submissiveness' was a result of taoism, and others point out that people often view current happenings in china through a rubric of unchanging "chinese tradition" in a way that is false; taoism itself has evolved substantially over the centuries.
it's also important to remember that everywhere anarchism has spread, it's adapted its method to a lot of cultural conventions, therefore anarchism in east asia broadly does not line up 1-to-1 with the categorizations of anarchism in europe or the us, even if the underlying sentiments remain the same.

"In China, anarchism remains influential as an underground resistance movement. Particularly, a significant underground labour movement has developed in opposition to state repression, with one such orgainsation being Autonomous Beijing. They, along with others, were responsible for the short-lived uprising in Tianamen Square. By neccesity, little is known of their existence and membership, but the existence of a continuing run of strikes and acts of resistance show that they are far from crushed."
Autonomous Beijing is a real thing, underground, word is that they are involved in some of the thousands of labor strikes and protests in china yearly.
