Is There a Martial Art Based on the Crab?

Yes, there is a type of martial arts based somewhat on the crab!

This style is “Crab style Kung Fu,” and is part of a massive ground combat system called Black Scorpion.

The Crab technique is identified by…

  • “toughening” – I.e. being tough like a crab
  • weapons – a key component of the Black Scorpion system in general
  • Crab throws
  • Crab sweeps

There is also a standing crab system that can capture opponents in a “scissor” or “pincer” style throw.
