There are several Chinese martial arts known as Snake Boxing or Snake Style (Chinese: 蛇拳; pinyin: shéquán; literally "snake fist") which imitate the movements of snakes. Proponents claim that adopting the fluidity of snakes allows them to entwine with their opponents in defense and strike them from angles they wouldn't expect in offense. There are two styles: Northern and Southern , both being unrelated.

Trivia Edit

  • Christie from the Dead or Alive series is a shequan martial artist although it remains unknown which style she uses though it could be possible that she uses the northern style as if look closely to her moves she seems to be aiming at the pressure points, joints, eyes and the groin.
