The Crane School is founded and taught by Tsurusen'in and Tao Pai Pai. Two star students are Tenshinhan and Chaozu. This school is a rival to Muten Roshi's Turtle School. The specialties are Bukujutsu and Dodonpa.
The symbol worn by Master Shen and all his students translates out to the word hok, which means crane. Master Shen is also known as the Crane Hermit like Roshi is to the Turtle Hermit. Although Shen has more students that have never appeared, we only see it worn by Tien, Chiaotzu, and Shen himself.
