Master Yu Wang continuously studied with world-renowned internal martial artist and pugilist Grandmaster Jiang Yu Kun for ten years. Jiang was the consecutive winner of several Chinese national wrestling championships in the 1940’s. Jiang graduated from the Nan King Guoshu Institute as a distinguished student, and he was the favorite student of Yang Cheng Fu (the Dean of the Academy). Yang Cheng Fu was the 3rd generation successor of the Yang Family. He taught the original Big Frame Yang Style Tai Chi system to Jiang from a martial arts approach. Jiang learned the Small Frame Yang Style from Gong Rongtian, who was a disciple of Yang Ban Shou (the 2nd generation successor of the Yang Family). Jiang also learned Chen Style Tai Chi from Master Chen Zi Ming, the 17th generation successor of the Chen Family).

Master Yu Wang is one of the few, if not the only person, to have mastered all five classical styles of Tai Chi Quan, as well as Tai Chi San Shou.
