Five Animals Shaolin Martial Arts : Crane Fighting Style in Shaolin Martial Arts
Hi my name is Adam Bowling, I’m representing
the Christian Martial Arts Association. On behalf of Expert Village, I’m here to you
talk about the Five Animal Forms of Kung Fu. Crane Style was a style that was develop,
keeping in my mind different body type that was long, lanky, skinny person who was very
tall would be more apt to be a crane stylist. The Crane Style is typified by a long movements,
circular moves, not coming in straight, and if come in straight with long strikes, so
thus to be able to move in and out very quickly. The Crane Style was often done in one leg.
The one leg was often a block. The crane block is also what people in Moi Tai would block
with. This is the same purpose. The Crane Style was the Moi Tai Block. Crane Style’s
would extend oftentimes striking long distances, moving their opponent back. Once their opponent
was back they would sweep circling out the way, striking. Strikes of this nature will
come in and that, they were narrow, and when strikes sensitive points of the body that
would call hit points. The Crane Technique mimic crane movements and that crane’s were
hunters, striking for fish, they had wings that they would use and they would move in
The Crane Style.
