Instead of using (only) external force which could be harmful to the body, we use internal force and the attacking force of the opponent. Specific (Qi Gong-) exercises are taught to build the inner structure of body and mind.
Effectiveness through reflex training
From the beginning you learn to develop your reflexes and senses by means of partner exercises, practiced bare hand and with weapons like double swords or stick.

Animal styles such as Dragon, Tiger, Snake or Crane represent principles and characteristics of the style.
