Snake Kung Fu is a Chinese martial art based on the movements of the snake.
Snake style is based on the whipping or rattling power which travels through the fingers. Footwork is fluid in order to maximise the whipping power of any movement. Because of this strong fingers and a strong spine are important when conditioning.
Strikes tend to be fast and "whipping", and other techniques include constricting (like a python).
Different variations of Snake Kung Fu imitate different snake movements and different types of snakes, including Python and Cobra.
The movements used in Snake Kung Fu lend themselves to the Chinese Broadsword in particular, which is used in the style.
