Okinawan Hakutsuru Karate 
Okinawan White Crane Karate is a martial art that is derived from the influences of the Crane style (Ban He quan fa of Southern China). Originating from the White Crane Chuan fa of Yong Chun, China and the five animals style of  Gong Fu of the Fukein Chinese Province, their influence in the Ryukyu Islands of Japan are related to the Ancestral Crane, Shouting Crane and Shaking Crane styles. A Chinese Tea Merchant named "Gokenki" was instrumental in exchanging his style of "Golden Rooster" Kung Fu which was infused with the native fighting arts of the Okinawan village martial art masters. These forms have been a closely guarded family secret and not normally shared with outsiders. The "Family Fist" forms are highly coveted for their quick, effortless, and deceptive movements.
