The name Gongstriker has its origins in the famous chinese Dragon Boat Races.
The Gongstriker was the heartbeat of each dragon boat, leading the crew throughout a race with the rhythmic beating of a drum or gong to indicate the timing and frequency of the paddling strokes.
The Gongstriker issued commands to the crew about cadence and pacing in order to perform at their peak.
