Although the Crane is considered to be a sacred animal throughout northeast Asia, the posture is originally Chinese. Actually, more specifically, it is originally Tibetan; a monk by the name of Ordator, created the Crane style used in the northern schools of Kung Fu, it was later simplified by the northern Shaolin temple into the Crane form. A few centuries later, in Fujian province, a lady by the name of Quinjiang developed the Fujian crane style, and parts of that style were later transferred to several of the Okinawan Karate styles including Goju Ryu and Shorin Ryu.
