all tai chi enthusiasts welcome
but there is evidence to the contrary that Manchu lineage taijiquan of Yang Luchan as being present in the style of Li Zheng and those who studied Imperial Yang! Even the Yang style that brought to fruition Li style is still similar but again exposure and understanding creates the differences based on depth of learning and insight!<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">As to Yang luchan teaching Wu Quanyu also per my sifu’s book and per my sifu’s teacher (Tung Ying Chieh) Yang Luchan did not want to teach Wu Quanyu taiji since Wu was a Manchu and what he did end up teaching Wu was defense not attack.</font>
<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">I had a question on the differences betw. Yang Jwing Ming Yang tai chi and Yang Jun tai chi. I do not really understand how they can be different in principles and to practice. In fact, I tried to practice at a training session near my home but I was really surprised at how the teacher moved. She would always move on the full leg without emptying it before for instance. And also the moves were exagerating compared to my regular teachers.</font>

Known small frame Chen styles do have a similarity to Yang style. Given the depth of Yang style it was probably a chen small frame Lu chan was taught.
