A short form to remember, Can you spot the names of the WuDang Short form techniques, I have not always used the most common versions of the names as we use them now, some references are to older or alternate names.

In the beginning there was absolutely nothing, then as the Tao divided in to yin and yang, the 7 stars appeared in the night sky, and I lightly grasped a birds tail, with a single whip I threw it into the clouds, waving my hands as I did so. I bent to pat the horse on high and turned to face left. Separating my right leg, I stepped back to watch the 7 stars. Suddenly a fierce tiger charged me and I stepped backward to beat the tiger, twisting my body I kicked and then boxed his ears. Turning to face right, I kicked in a curve with my left leg and then turned around to kick with the heel. With a twist I stepped and brushed my knee, parried and punched down then stepped back and swung my fist.
The attack continued so I crept down like a snake to avoid his leap, I stood like the 7 stars then stepped back to ride the tiger, turning my body I slapped his face then performed double hands sweep lotus leg, I drew my bow to shoot an arrow at the tiger but was distracted by a huge monkey which leapt at me, repulsing the monkey I saw the seven stars above me which reminded me of the true nature of all and so stroked my lute to calm the beasts- The monkey was enraged and renewed his attack I parried and punched and then as if shutting a door he was gone. Then I embraced the tiger and returned to the mountain, in unity with nature, my journey complete.
