Alternate Names: Heron, Stork, White Crane
Crane styles focus on fluid movements, misdirection, and redirection of an opponent’s movements. Sweeping blocks and counterstrikes combinations, throws, and graceful and precise strikes to vulnerable areas define Crane styles in combat. Like their namesakes, Crane stylists rely on swift counterstrikes, strong defense, and allowing opponent’s to rush to action and thus reveal their vulnerabilities.
