True! Natural disasters, animals and gods are quite prevalent in the naming of moves and stances (my favorite sword stance is 'Immortal points the Way', for example). We also practice a Yang style 108 figures swordless form where moves are named 'White Crane Spreads its Wings', 'Carry Tiger to the Mountain' etc. … while we call them 'iron a shirt' and 'ring the bell'.
