Dragon kung fu is largely internal, qi (pronounced chi) cultivation method, but the training is much more like a hard, external style that delicate approach reptiles. In learning movements, students will strike hard, block hard and stomp at each position, with the idea of learning to the right place to be once a movement is finished. Finally, the method of transmission power is kept, and strengthening the physical body is able to make transitions as smooth, so fluid. In turn, this allows to hide reptilian smoothness of the attack, making it extremely difficult for an adversary to effectively counter. The practitioner is at a 45 degree angle to the opponent
Once a seemingly purely physical flow has been mastered, the disciple understands the depth of the sounds of train whistles ch'i flow. Inhalation is silent, but the end is deliberate, time and controlled. Inhalation reduces the body of aerial maneuvers, while generating power players in each technique. Blocking is eliminated, and the parades or simply strikes replaced. At this point, novice and advanced students show very little in common.
On the highest level, an adversary is allowed to own tires, fraud becoming the key to the defense of the Dragon. Qi control is highly developed, and the extent to which the body must be to redirect or avoid the impact is greater control.

In each form, it is taught to "take the wind", a phrase which means, in large part, to follow rather than lead. Provide, without opening to leave your opponent open. Unlike Crane, which also relies heavily on fraud as a tactic, the Dragon escapes mainly through the rotation of the upper or lower torso with little or no movement of position while the crane hop stylist often reposition all body. Both styles use strikes to identify targets meridian, but also heavily used as tiger dragon-punching and clawing techniques, snake position changes, as the leopard and the hit and run strikes to weaken an opponent physically superior. Dragon kung fu also regularly employs low scanning techniques, but they are not unique, the highest of any kung fu stylists of the use of the system to a weakening of the adversary.
