Lung Pu Dragon Step

The Dragon Step is a variation of the Serpent Step. Use the Lung Pu technique when cover and concealment are available, when poor visibility reduces enemy watchfulness, and when more speed is needed.

Fig. 13 -Keep the body free of the ground by resting body weight on the forearms and lower legs. The knees are maintained low behind the buttocks to reduce silhouette. Move forward by alternately advancing the right knee/left elbow and the left knee/right elbow. For the most part, sounds made by these motions are muffled by the costume. However, in this position one is quite vulnerable. It is therefore recommended for use in the primary ingress phase, which is beyond the enemy reach, but not beyond his field of view. In most military and paramilitary forces, this technique is referred to as the High Crawl and resembles the action of a lizard darting across a patio. In both of these techniques, the most common error is to let the buttocks bob up and down when moving. This, of course, leads to embarrassing injuries on the battlefield, and the unusual movement often attracts the attention of posted sentries.
