as Wikipedia is, its' continual changes at the hands of the helpful public is slowly biasing the data. These wiki's
are also incomplete as they omit data and focus only on the Nanjing and Hong Kong schemes. Thus, I have a listing of what
I consider to be a brief and useful.
[Note: a complete listing of all known schools and teachers
has been compiled within my publication.]
[ Note: The lineage, from teacher-founder Wu Yi-hui is much in dispute:
1. it should fall to
his son Wu, Ying-hua 吴英華
2. it should fall to
his longest student Lu Gui Yao 盧桂耀 [died 2012]
3. it should fall to
a student outside 'Communist' China, Chan Yik Yan 陳亦人
4. it should fall to
the most capable student Zhang Chang-xin 張長信
5. it should fall to most influential 'preserver' spreader
of the exercise.]
6. it should fall to one with the most videos and promotions.
[ One may be tempted to chose either Li Dao-li or Liang
Zhi-peng, but both
teachers are now deceased; other qualified
teachers are now retired or will no longer teach publically. There also exists the self promoting of teachers proteges, each
insisting that their 'teacher' was the best..and therefore they are 'teachers' teaching the best to their 'closed door' paying

Wu's choices of a successor seemed to have been directed towards
a student that would be outside the influence of Red China's suppression of traditions and martial arts; the choice, at that
time led to Hong Kong. The influence and locales of all of Msr. Wu's other students remains mostly unknown, although an occasional
reference does appear within the Chinese language sites.
Huainan : 南京建 Nanjing, 安徽 Anhui, 淮南 Huainan
two main branches of the Wu Yi-hui, Nanjing teachings are via his son and his student Lu Gui-yao; yet, for successorship Chen
Yik-yan was chosen.
Wu, Ying-hua 吴英華, son of Wu Yi-hui; lineage inheritor,
has focused on style preservation, research, and seminar organization. A 3-Disk DVD exercise series is available as is a publication. Website: http://lhbflm.com/index.asp
Recently Wu Yi-Hui's son is setting up an International Alliance and inviting people to
joint in. http://lhbflm.com/ARTICLEhaiwaizhichuang/ShowArticle.asp?ArticleID=105
“I think in the future,there will be many difference of lineage of LHBF, like Chan Yik-yan lineage,
Leung Zhi-pang lineage, Li Dao-li etc. because they are so much different. I heard some senior said, in the meeting host by
Wu Ying-hua, all Masters insist to play their own style and cannot unify the LHBF 66 form, so everyone just publish their
own style made LHBF confusing the martial art people.” Thomas Choi, HK.
