    congratulations you dumbshit. There are 4 known lineages of Eagle Claw. I'm sorry that you're too stupid to understand this. Go back to your legos now kid and get off my thread.

    Where in the US do you teach? Depending on how close it is, I may tell my wife that we're moving. :car6:

    No! The correct answer is South Carolina. Ah, well, if you said you were in California at some point I managed to forget while reading the rest of the posts. I have the memory of a goldfish, apparently.

    I can only speak for the limited discussion of animal names and such I've had experience with. Since I don't study monkey kung fu or badger shaolin (why didn't anyone ever name a move after a badger or wolverine?), It seems to me that the animal descriptions were simply used to help the student understand, remember and visualize the movements. whether people actually fought out of positions that might more closely resemble yoga, I havent' the slightest clue.

    I would imagine people back in the days weren't rocket scientists and it had to be simple enough for the illiterate gardener to learn as well as effective for a professional soldier (who might also be illiterate) to use.

    Kind of like you see animal and other "thing" names for guards in WMA, the hawk, crown, plough, etc. guards.

    thats my opinion on it- I have limted experience with it because unless someone comes from outside to view or train in the class that has a background with animal names, we generally refer to it as something else.
