The patterns here worked out by Sifu Jordan and Henrick from the “Five-Animal Set” are more sophisticated than the straight-forward punches and kicks of Boxers and Kick-Boxers, and are used by kungfu exponents who use kungfu fighting. This represents the next stage of the development of fighting techniques. But Sifu Jordan and Henrick also make allowance for Boxers' and Kick-Boxers' attacks. The “dragon-hand” from “Swimming Dragon” and the reverse Bow-Arrow Stance from “Taming Tiger” are very effective punches and kicks. Notice that by using stances and body-work they can be faster than Boxers and Kick-Boxers who bounce about.
