By the 19th century, masters of Yongchun White Crane had spread far and wide through the province, as well as to Taiwan, Japan and South East Asia, taking their style with them. In the provincial capital of Fuzhou five separate Crane styles developed, all of which survive to this day: The stances are low and rooted, with weight distributed or to the back foot.
Arms use crane wing movements to deflect blows and crane beak strikes to attack vulnerable parts of the body. The spring power, pressure point attacks, diaphragmatic breathing, tight masking movements are there in all of these styles to a lesser Lai foon yung greater degree Flying Crane Fei He was developed by Zheng Ji, a student of Yongchun White Crane third generation Master Zheng Li.
This style is immediately recognisable by the loose flapping strikes of the arms, which resemble the movements of a bird's wings. This is an exaggerated version of the basic Crane principle of using spring energy Jin or Dun to strike, so the blows feel more like being struck with a whip than with a club.
It is achieved by keeping the arm relaxed through the movement apart from the very point of impact, when the energy thus generated is transferred into the opponent's body. Shaking Crane Zong He uses the same principle of spring energy, but instead of large movements, it is localised and focused in a particular area.
This can either be used to deliver the so called "three inch punch" which was first invented by a White Crane Master Bai Jie under the name Cun Jing Jie Li Kung Fu, but later got adopted into many southern styles and made famous in the West by a certain Bruce Lee or to break free from a grab.
Shaking Crane was invented by Fang Shipei towards the end of the nineteenth century. The theory of the style is that you can catch your opponents out if you pretend to be half asleep, in practice this translates into a powerful breaking and trapping system.
In Sleeping Crane patterns tight closed-in movements of the arms mask hold breaking and joint attacks. Keeping the movements close to the body not only helps to hide your intention, but also makes sure that every move of the arm is supported by the full power of the torso.
Again this comes from the general crane principle of using small movements to produce big effect. Ye had learned the Crane System from Master Fang Suiguan and the Tiger Style from Master Zhou Zihe, combining these two he arrived at a new Crane style which emphasised hooking and clawing motions with the hand and strikes delivered by the fingertips and palms.
The principle is to create an opportunity to deliver a devastating strike, targeting one of 36 vital points on the opponent's body. Pressure point fighting is an important feature of the Crane System as a whole as it allows a smaller fighter to defeat a much larger and stronger opponent, which would have been the case with just about anybody Fang Qi Niang had fought.
The effectiveness of the whole system was born very much out of necessity and a kind of lateral thinking on the part of the woman who created it. This is mostly due to memory of its founding master, who was one of the most influential teachers of martial arts of his generation.
Apart from inventing Calling Crane Xie's teaching also lay the foundation for a number of Karate styles in neighbouring Okinawa where he is known as Ryuruko. Calling Crane is characterised by its powerful breathing techniques that give it its name. As with all Crane styles the breathing is diaphragmatic and stimulates the Dan Tien area in the abdomen just below the navel.
Sound is produced as the diaphragm is compressed downwards and this is used to generate extra energy at a key moment. Apart for the breathing, Calling Crane is also well known for the lightning speed of its open hand attacks, so much so that the nickname for them is "arrow hand.
He was a later student of Fang Qi Niang and Zheng Si than the 28 Heroes, but his achievements in many competitions and his influence in spreading the style outside of Yongchun earned him the place in ranks of the Five Front Tigers.
Zheng Li grew famous by fighting and beating masters of many other styles, so securing the reputation of Yongchun White Crane Fist. Many of his own students became famous third generation masters. The known students of Zheng Li were: There was one master whose reputation perhaps surpassed even that of Zheng Li.
He was also one of the 28 Heroes and his fame was such that he was later known as the Back Yongchun Famous Master, rivalling the position of Zheng Si himself.
