To further his training, Master Luo sent him to Grandmaster Wang Peisheng' home for direct intensive training where he practiced very hard and developed his fighting skill to a high level. For many years, Lu has regularly started training from five o'clock in the morning for about three hours outdoors in whatever weather or season. For Lu, as for other serious practitioners, hard practice is supplemented by rigorous analysis and research, always seeking to perfect one's skill. For example, while first learning Liu (Dekuan) Style Bagua with Master Wang, Lu went to Master Wang's home twice a week. In each two or three hour long private class, he may have learned just one skill, asking Master Wang to explain every small movement in detail and trying to feel it again and again. Even this was not good enough for him, feeling also the need to practice hard and try out his skill with others. Lu would test everything during his practice and fighting and then check his feeling with Master Wang again. Currently, he enjoys a good reputation among Beijing martial artists for his practical knowledge and skill.
