Remember as you do this form, which is required for attaining Green Stripe Belt, to keep your back and shoulders straight. Concentrate on your imaginary targets and execute all movements with balance and power.
The Shaolin Monks patterned many movements after animals and birds found in nature. Nowhere is this demonstrated, more clearly than in this complex form. The martial artist can visualize the graceful, and deadly bird after which this form is named. Proficiency with the Statue of the Crane is required.
