Lute form 02
-With the right elbow joint E
as the center and the
forearm E-F as radius, move
the right hand toward the
west side until the right arm
stretches out naturally.
Keep the muscle of the arm
relaxed and the other parts
of the body still.
Lute form 01
Keep the whole body stable and stretch the left leg. With the left heel as the
supporting point and the connecting line between point K and D as the axis, pivot
the left toes till the point 90 degree to the West.
The demand of the above is that in turning the left leg, the upper body does not
turn at the same time and it remains facing south. If this cannot be accomplished,
try to lessen the degree of turning of the leg and ensure that the main requirement
is to keep the upper body still. The crucial point is to exercise the controlling
capability and turning flexibility of the hip joints.
After turning the left leg, move the body forward to the South by stretching the
right leg. In doing this, both hands remain still and shall not push forward. At
the same time, bend the left knee correspondently and step the left toes down
Leaning of the upper body forward makes the right side point K-D-C-B-A becoming a
straight line. The body weight shifts entirely to the left leg. Finally, as shown
in Fig.III, the left foot (I-K) and the right foot (I-K) are nearly perpendicular
to each other.
Lute form 03
-With left hip joint D as center, turn the inclined upper body to up right and at the same
time from facing south to facing west. Move the right elbow to the right side of the body
making left and right hands meet at a foot in front of the center of the chest. The left
fingers slightly touch the wrist of the right hand with the middle figure of the right hand at
the level height with the nose tip.
-Let both elbows fall naturally and image both hands, arms and the back of the body
forming an expanded circle. The muscle of the arms and the front chest must not be
-When turning the body, Point D on the left side must not sway up and down or left and
right. The left knee also remains stable. The right leg following the turning movement of
the body stretches out naturally with left and right thighs becoming parallel.
-The right heel touches the ground with right foot pulling back and all toes pointing up as
much as possible. This is to ensure the whole body weight is all the way supported only by
the left leg.
