basic techniques with a challenging strategy of movement
complementary to the opponent's ( when he advances, I
retreat; when he retreats, I advance ).Prefers zigzagging
motions. The Dragon has a lot of floating motion and a lot of
rising and falling,swinging around, whipping as well as
twisting and turning movements to overcome its adversaries.
