White Crane is a short range style that attacks the opponent with powerful tremor-like techniques.The style emphasizes:-
Chi development: Such as the breathing and meditation techniques such as those contained in San Zan (Three Battles)
Using the mind to drive Chi, and using the Chi to drive the strike i.e. the focus is not on brute physical strength
Development of flexible, short range hand techniques: Fujian White Crane fights at very close distances using the Tremor Force (Dan Dou Jing in Mandarin). This is the explosive energy released from releasing the tension in the wrists and forearms at short range
White Crane was created by Fang Xi Liang. Fang was the daughter of a skilled monk of the Southern Shaolin Temple, Fang Wai Shi.
During the 17th Century, the Southern Shaolin Temple was a base of insurrection by the Chinese hoping to overthrow the Manchu Government (of the Qing Dynasty) and restore the previous Ming Dynasty. In retaliation, the Qing Dynasty razed the temple to the ground. Fang Wai Shi escaped to a temple in Fujian Province, and eventually settled down in Fujian and had a daughter, Fang Xi Liang to whom he passed on his martial arts skills.
One day, while Fang Xi Liang was hanging out the washing she had to chase away a crane. The crane parried her efforts and even struck back. Fang Xi Liang was impressed by the crane's behaviour and over a period of time studied its movements and incorporated its techniques to create the style known as White Crane Kung Fu today.
