Yang Lu-chan's two sons carried on his brand of t'ai chi ch'uan. One of them, Yang Pan-hou, taught a modified small-frame style. He is also reported to have taught a watered-down form to the Imperial family and still another form to his towns-people.
Several versions of t'ai chi are now attributed to Yang Pan-hou. The most famous is the other Wu style or "Medium Frame" form of Wu Jian-chuan (Wu Jianquan) (1870 - 1942) and another is Kuang Ping style (described later). Yang taught Wu Chuan-yu, who taught his son, Wu Jian-chuan. This style is called the "New Wu style" by some, and is distinct from the Wu style of Wu Yu-hsiang.
