Eagle Claw Kung Fu is known for a system called 108 Chin Na Techniques. This is a series of 108 different techniques taught to students that focuses on locks, strikes, pressure point attacks and how to counter these attacks.

According to Lily Lau Eagle Claw Kung Fu Federation, students use the following 18-character poem in order to understand the Chin Na techniques in Eagle Claw Kung Fu.
