Yang Jianhou (1839–1917), or Yang Chien-hou, was the younger son of the founder of Yang-style t'ai chi ch'uan, Yang Lu-ch'an, and a well known teacher of the soft style martial art of t'ai chi ch'uan (taijiquan) in late Qing dynasty China. Yang's older brother, Yang Pan-hou, was the senior of Jianhou's generation, and also an important instructor of t'ai chi ch'uan. Yang Jianhou's sons Yang Chengfu and Yang Shao-hou were also famous teachers of t'ai chi ch'uan.
T'ai chi ch'uan lineage tree with Yang-style focus
- This lineage tree is not comprehensive, but depicts those considered the 'gate-keepers' & most recognised individuals in each generation of Yang-style.
- Although many styles were passed down to respective descendants of the same family, the lineage focused on is that of the Yang style & not necessarily that of the family.
