Empty Your Mind; Be Formless; Chapless; Like Water
See the Way of Life as a stream. A man floats, and his way is smooth. The same man, turning to fight upstream, exhausts himself. To be One with the Universe, each must find his true path and follow it.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. Water can flow, or it can crash. Running water never goes stale, so you just gotta keep on flowing; you have to train, you have to keep your reflexes, so that when you want it, it's there. When you want to move, you're moving. You gotta put the whole hip into it, snap snap. Train every part of your body. Be ever changing, adapting... Be water my friends.
Leaping Tiger Style
The Leaping Tiger is an ancient technique first developed by Grandmaster Xuanzhi in the 21st century. The Leaping Tiger style mixes the famous Turtle Style with flying kicks for deadly effect. Leaping Tigers can often be seen leaping into battle, feet first, trying to break the enemy's defense with a well placed TIGER KICK! to the face.
Hidden Dragon Style
The Hidden Dragon technique was first developed by Mak Du, after eating a very hot chili he had become very a bit slump but also angry, and after burping fire on a westerner's face he came to the conclusion that 'fire bad'. He quickly fashioned a small hand-woven pot with 'flaming fire' inside it, harvested from a nearby brothel. Shaolins that use the Hidden Dragon are often seen throwing pots of liquid fire at the enemy, usually with deadly effect.
Cowering Crane Style
The Cowering Crane technique first appeared in the Lowland province in the 21st century; believed to be the reactionary movement of the Leaping Tiger Sttyle, it was developed by Grandmaster Zuyao the Cowardly. The Cowering Crane style is simple in mind but hard to master, monks that use the Cowering Crane have developed a keen sense of knowing exactly when it is the most damaging to run away from your monk-brothers -- this has lead Cowering Crane monks to be despised by all other monks, but they are still needed on the battlefield. Employing a mix of Turtle Style and Hidden Dragon the Cowering Crane Style can still be quite lethal, at least to monk-brothers. Visit The Shaolin Temple's profile
