Lu Chan had 3 sons, Jian Hou, Ban Hou and Feng Hou.

- "it is clear that the Wu’s learned Tai Chi from the Yangs’ without any other influence. It also gives you an account about the Yang family and how much they treasured their Tai Chi heritage particularly the small circle or the compact form."
- Yang Shao-hou started serious Tai Chi training with his father when he was seven. His accomplishment could match his father and his uncle Ban-hou. In fact, people think that his temperament very much resembled his uncle. His preference was small circle and liked to use fa-chin to throw people- often his students. Because of his compact movements, impatient to teach the basics, and eager to punish, very few students could take it. It is unfortunate that this highly accomplished Tai Chi Master was not able to pass on his knowledge about Tai Chi.”
- Master Hwa has previously stated: (Someone at a Wu's family conference Toronto 1990's) "...who was taught “large frame” by Wu Chien Chuan when he was teenager, thought that was all Wu knew! If he thought that when he was teenager, its excusable. But now at his old age, with all the published discussion about Wu’s prowess at Compact Form, he still thinks that way. He is truly clueless. Unfortunately, it is this kind of person, who saw a master play one style immediately assume that was that master’s style, or that family’s style, who has muddied the water about the history of tai chi. Prime examples are: "Yang Ban-Hou had other teachers beside his father Yang Lu-Chan and therefore his style is different from his father." “Large frame” or “large circle” is the hallmark of Yang style, ignoring the fact that several Yangs are known for their zeal for compact form such as Yang Shao-hou, brother of Yang Cheng-Fu. This reminds me of a Chinese saying “sitting in the bottom of a well trying to figure out how big is the sky”.
- "Translated from a Chinese book about the History of the Yang Family: “Yang Cheng-Fu was not interested in Tai Chi until his father passed away. He then practiced day and night to improve his Tai Chi. Much of it were self-taught based on what he remembered in his younger years. He was a patient teacher and had many students. His style was the large circle which people refer to now as Yang Style."
- "... what they did for the camera was not representative of theirstyle. During that era, printed picture in the book have very poor quality (I have several of such books), difficult to see any details. If a pose was in the compact form, it probably showed very little what was going on. Master Wu’s pictures are all in very large frame style. An interesting story as told by one of Wu Chien Chuan’s student was that he asked Wu why one of his tai chi photo had wrong posture. Wu said that the photographer told him to do this way. The story just show that these masters really did not give a hoot about their photographs."Master Hwa has previously said : "...My teacher Young Wabu describing how Master Wu, during sparring, could stick to the opponent keeping opponent constantly out of balance. This is the epitome of tai chi martial art. It is formless; an abstract of all the training he had gone through---leg power from “large cicle”, internal power from “small circle”, movements from form practice, sense and touch developed during push hand and sparring exercise, etc."
