They used many different animal movements in their Kung fu. I first was introduced to animal style workouts back in about 1994 when I Trained at Romero Calvacanti’s(jacare) Master BJJ gym in Atlanta. Animal movements are one of the standard warm ups used in a lot of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gyms world wide. Now animal movements have caught on to the mainstream. Since functional training is so popular now, animal style workouts fit right in. They are full body movements that can be performed almost anywhere.
