Fan through the back 01
Stretch the left leg forward and land the heel on the
ground with front part of the foot including the toes
pointing upward. Keep the rest of the body still.
Particularly do not shift the weight center when stretching
the left leg. Maintain all the motion requirements of the
Fan through the back 02
Move forward from sitting post to bow step. The left arm is holding
on its original position while moving forward along with the body.
With the right shoulder joint as center and the right arm as radius,
raise the right hand in an arch form till it is in the same height with
the shoulder. The right palm is still facing left with fingers pointing
While raising the right arm, move it a little bit to the left so that the
right forearm is slightly touching the left palm. Pay attention that
the right shoulder is not shrugging when raising the arm.
Fan through the back 03
With the connecting line of the left hip and the left heel
as axis, turn to the right for 45 degrees with the left toes
pointing to the southeast corner. Along the course, with
the spine as the axis, turn the torso to the right facing
the southeast corner.
While turning the body, with the right arm as axis, turn
the hand inward leading the palm from facing north to
Fan through the back 04
While keeping the positions of the rest of the body
basically unchanged, with the right hip joint as center
and the right leg as radius, rub the right heel backward
in an arch form for a distance of a footstep. Keep the
connecting line of the two heels in the east west
direction and both feet are basically parallel and
facing the southeast corner.
Fan through the back 04
Keep the left knee stable. Raise the right toes slightly and with the right heel as center, simultaneously rotate the
right toes, right hip and right leg from a stretching position to a bended position with the right toes pointing
southwest. At the same time, open the hip and shift the weight center gradually from the left leg to the right till both
legs share equally the weight of the body. The upper body is rotating from southeast to face south and the leaning
torso is becoming upright.
The right elbow is moving downward to the right front side of the chest along the course of turning the torso to the
right. The right palm is still facing south. While moving the right elbow to the right, withdraw the right palm from
behind the left wrist and place it in front of the forehead. Keep the right palm at the same height during the process
of moving the right elbow downward and maintain the fingers pointing east. In order to do this, the right wrist has to
rotate down toward the direction of the thumb as much as possible.
Keep the height of the left elbow unchanged. With the left arm as axis, rotate the arm forward to the east with the
palm slightly pushing eastward. The motion of the left arm is coordinating with the right move of the right arm to form
the stance like pulling a bow to shoot an arrow. Keep the eyesight in the direction of the left hand. When the motion
is completed, the front toes are solidly grounding. Now, it is the time to inspect whether the requirements; such as
drawing the chest inward, extending the back, rounding the lower back and the crotch, aligning the head and
stabilizing the lower part of the body, are all fulfilled.
In practicing the forms, it is necessary to understand that even though the center of gravity is essentially fallen on
the latter part of the feet, the outer edges of both feet are also lending support. The toes are having the sense of
grasping the floor as well. The body weight must not be placed on the inner edges along the big toes. The ending
posture of Single Whip is very much the same like this posture. References can be made with the procedures of
Single Whip 04 and 05 as to the detailed requirements of the movements of the waist, legs, knees and feet in this
