“That which can be explained is not the way.”
-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
In philosophical terms, essence is defined as the attribute or set of attributes that make an
object or substance what it fundamentally is. When we look at Dragon Essence, yes, in a matter
of speaking it just is, in a perspective, empty of anything else. That doesn’t necessarily lead
to understanding. In order to grasp it, we need to look at traits that, when combined, comprise
the essence itself. When you fully identify with the dragon in form, meditate on it and aspire to
be it, there is no question.
To the observer Dragon style appears to be fluid, circular, graceful, mighty, powerful, and
majestic. The inner concepts of divinity, sacredness, regality, power, internal nature, and
mystery are all trademarks of the dragon style which may be apparent.
The dragon embodies a concept or element completely. In the metal dragon form, for
example, one is not merely cultivating the physical qualities of metal, but the energetic and
spiritual as well. In the metal dragon form the chopping hand falls like a golden axe splitting a
mountain, the fist strikes like a golden hammer sounding a bell, and the dragon claw is likened
to five madmen wielding broadswords. All these qualities may physically manifest as one
performs the set. Energetically the “ssss” would resonate energizing the lungs, large intestine,
nasal canal, and shoulders with clear white qi. Spiritually, the Po would be cultivated.
Externally dragon style may appear to be paradoxical in nature, yet in actuality it is the
dragon stylists’ understanding of oneness and nonduality; a fusion in yin and yang thoroughly
integrated. Though as a whole not particularly aggressive, this style is reliant on unrelenting
offensive attacks once action has been initiated. These can be a slow moving meditation, or
an unceasing heavy lightning speed barrage. The constant coiling and compound circular hand
work is reminiscent of snake, but instead of terminating into whipping motions, the dragon hits
with a shuddering body shaking fullness, not to mention the more commonly employed claw
rather than a piercing, spear-like fingertip strike.
