The Hidden Secrets Within the Statue Of
The Crane That Most Masters Don't
Cracking the Statue of the Crane's Secret Codes
To all Martial Arts Friends,
Especially those in the Shaolin Kempo Arts. There is a form known as "Statue of the Crane". The form is called that because of the "freezing like a statue" in the crane stance, a one legged stance that is a prevalent feature of the form/kata
It has been stated that the form was from the Tomari-Te and is known as "Rohai" which means "Vision of a Crane". Kosaku Matsumora of the Tomari-te school is thought by some to be the creator of this kata. Anko Itosu later divided the form into three parts.
The Shotokan version of Rōhai renamed Meikyo, (which means "bright mirror") by Gichin Funakoshi is very distinct from the other versions.
It is believed that Funakoshi being a much older and earlier student of Itosu may have been taught a different version of Rohai.
Gichin Funakoshi once said, “In the past, it was expected that about three years were required to learn a single kata, and as expert of considerable skill would only know three or at most five kata.”
If ever there is a “single kata” that he is talking about ….it is the Crane form. There is so much in the bunkia and codes imbedded in the numbers and moves that it should take years to learn from and understand.
I have worked with Masters from coast to coast and none of them knew the information that lies within this form. Even while filming this course, there were some 4th dans in the room freaking out at what was hidden in this kata.
It is guarantee that the knowledge of what the masters were trying to teach us in this form will enhance your skill and knowledge of the art of combat.
Watch Video to know more...
Will show you how to do the form. This is mainly for those who don’t know and want to learn it.
But, there will be some things shown….like why this form should be taught AFTER 2 Kata???
You will also learn the meaning of the repetition of a number, and why??
Learn why do you do open hand strikes at the end of the form??
This DVD will end with a review if what was taught and how it can be used to enhance your own fighting skill.
Statue OR Stature????
Then you will explore the uses of the crane stance for modern combat such as….
-against sweeps and leg attack
-A hidden kick.
-when it is good to employ the crane
And that’s just for starters…….
One of the most important lessons from this form is the…
Which when practiced cultivates a One Strike Kill Method.
Isolating this movement out of the form can and will lead to incredible power and the ability to end the battle in just one blow.
NOTE: the camera angle was not so great, so I re-filmed me at my home dojo re-teaching this principle so you can get its full benefits of adding this Principle of Power to your own art….POP!!!
Watch Video below to learn more....
You will learn the applications of the very 1st move after the salutation. As well as learn how to properly use it in one of the kempo combinations in which it is always taught for the wrong attack.
There will be two more hidden moves revealed. One against a strike, and then a kick.
Thus making the very first move a defense against a grab with a takedown, then punch and kick attack, representing all forms of combat which are, striking, kicking, grappling and felling.
If you know this form, you then do a block and punch sequence left and right, also known as the chain punch.
A chain punch is a term used in kung Fu circles to describe a simultaneous lead hand outward block WITH a rear HAND front two knuckle punch.
If you look at a couple of other forms in the Shaolin Kempo Karate, you will see this technique applied with one side then the other side. If you look closely, you will see that the 3 dimensional pattern of the 2 arms moving will form the shape of an entwining chain. Hence the name.
There are several secret bunkia to these moves……one of which is NEVER taught, and that is a grappling technique.
In fact, it is taught in American Kenpo karate system.
Next, you will see a hidden meaning to the crane jump and how it can be used as a way to cripple an opponent’s leg.
There is footage of MMA fights to drive home this lesson.
Along with this lesson you will learn a little taught way to execute the jumps as to confuse and evade any attack.
NOTE: I learned this method from a senior master back in 1983 and have never seen it taught since.
AND as if that wasn’t enough, you will learn how the jumping crane can be used to surprise the opponent and attack while leaving them in a state of confusion.
Then, one of Bruce Lee's most famous signature moves is represented in this form. The technique operates on the principle of using a sustained offense as a means of forcing an opponent to move on the defensive.
In some of his books, Bruce Lee mentions how boxers would scoff at this 'funny' looking technique, but when they were not expecting it in sparring matches, they would take the brunt of the attack, be thrown off guard and defeated.

You will learn the Secrets of the U-Punch that can be used for actual combat that has RARELY been taught before!!!
As well as the bunkia to the step back that is taught during the ending u-punches.
Then a problem Kempo combination is reinterpreted with the u-punch.
Then you will discover a powerful tool in combat from the crane stance using a kick jab. This has been taught as the best kick for street fighting by some masters.
You will see that another bunkia to the u-punches can be used for a grappling escape. During this lesson an area of the body is taught that the opponent cannot resist and must comply
And as an added bonus I have included footage that I was not going to include because I reshot it. BUT..the difference in the explanation is worth a look.
I finally finished the 4th video of the Crane.
You did it again!!! - you revealed so much more than I ever saw, and now I feel like I have even more practical applications and purpose to many of the movements. I love it!
Here's my testimonial.....
I've been studying and teaching Statue of the Crane for over 20 years, and I absolutely love the form. I thought I knew all the ins and outs of the movements.
So I half expected to hear the standard stuff with this Crane Course.
However, Grandmaster Brassard brought movements to life that I had overlooked this whole time!
The applications are intelligent, practical, and honestly fun to practice. If you think you've seen it all with the Crane, think again.
Get GM Brassard's Crane Course, and prepare to gain much more depth than ever before."

"While I was studying the Statue of the Crane course, I was reminded of a quote that Grandmaster Brassard shared with me recently.
"Not everything is as it seems."
I worked alongside my peers many times over the years to try and fully understand the insights hidden in Statue of the Crane. It was a daunting task for us, we didn’t know how to fully interpret the moves, so our understanding of application was limited.
Grandmaster Jim Brassard's Statue of the Crane course shows what is behind those moves and unveils many hidden fighting applications within the form.
The lessons within this course immediately gave me a new confidence and understanding of Statue of the Crane that I have never seen before from any other Master.
I highly recommend this course!!"
