When you duel Han at L'Renouille he had (estimate) 700-900 hit points. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the training helped out a lot too, but I don't see how a pupil can be staggeringly more powerful than his master without something else fueling his power. My personal believe is that more of his power came from pure hatred and determination than intense training.
Note: Luca and Han's hit points are estimates, but you get the general idea.
Never ever use HP (a gameplay element) to say one is stronger than the other (a storyline element).
Not to mention that even your comparison highly flawed. Comparing HP of duel to HP of normal battle is just not right. Think about it this way, when fighting Sonya in S1, she had more than 1,000 HP easily, why? Because during a 6 on 1 normal battle, the player could easily deal thousands of damage per turn. On the other hand, duel against Teo, he had definitely less than 1,000 HP. Why? Because it was one on one duel, and only Tir could deal damage with his physical attack. That's why Teo got lower HP than Sonya. But does that mean Teo is weaker than Sonya? I don't think so.
Last but not least, to say that Luca had 18,000 HP is still wrong because he only had around 6,000 HP. It's just that we fought him 3 times, not that he tripled his HP. To prove this, even if you never inflicted any damage to him during the first two units battle, he'd still have around 6,000 HP when Riou's party fought him, and definitely not 18,000 HP.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm not saying that Han is stronger than Luca. But your reasoning is wrong. Though Luca is the strongest human that we know, Han was definitely still up there when it comes to fighting skills.
