Our Kung Fu
Some of the most famous kung fu styles have been based on the movements of animals.
The Chinese of old admired the beauty, power, grace and fluidity of various animals and sought to emulate them. They copied their movements and their fighting tactics and created some of the most beautiful and deadly martial arts the world had seen.
Training in the animal styles brought to the student the qualities of that animal so that you would become more and more like the animal whose style you were studying. However, some of these styles were never meant to be trained alone but alongside other animals so that each animals strengths would add to the overall development of the student. To over train in one animal style would strengthen some parts and teach certain tactics but would leave other areas vulnerable.
