               Step up & cros hands 01
Keep the left hip and left knee stable. Shift the body from
slanting forward to upright. Bend the right leg. Raise the right
heel. Ground with the right toe tips and shift them slightly
forward.
With both shoulders and elbows as center, raise both arms
forward. Bend both arms slightly with left palm facing the right
and right palm facing left. Place the left wrist on top of the right
wrist leading both arms crossing each other in front of the
abdomen.
This is only a transitional state. There are no strict requirements
toward the positions of the arm and the right leg. But both arms
and legs have to move steadily and in coordination.
                Step up & cross hands 02

Continue to keep the weight center of the whole body stable.
Stretch the right leg and ground the heel forward leading the
body in upright sitting back position. With both elbows as center,
withdraw both hands inward.

Keep the forearm basically in their original state. Following the
rising of the body, raise them slightly upward. Place the crossing
section of both wrists in front of the forehead.

Raise both arms upward with the sense of crossing against
incoming attack.
                                                                        Step back and ride the tiger 01
Keep the left hip and knee stable. With the left hip as center, rotate the right hip backward leading the body from facing east to facing
southeast. And shift the body from upright to slanting forward toward the southeast side. Though the body is facing the south east side, the
weight center is still on the leg that facing east.
Shift along with the body and with the right hip as center; withdraw the stretching right leg backward toward the southwest side with sense on
the right heel. During withdrawing, ground with the sole and with the right leg as axis turns the right toe tips from facing east to facing
southeast.
While slanting the body forward, shift both elbow slightly downward. Keep the crossing state of both forearms unchanged and move
downward along with the slanting torso. Rotate both forearms leading the right palm to face up and the left palm to face down with the left
wrist rested on top of the right wrist.
              Step back and ride the tiger 02
Press the ground with the left foot. Rotate both hips to the right and
shift the weight center to the right leg. Turn the southeast-slanting
torso to upright and to face south. With the right heel as center,
rotate both right foot and right knee toward southwest at the same
time. Bend the right leg and place the weight center in the middle of
the line between two heels.

While making the rotation, keep both wrists sticking together. Stretch
both arms naturally. Place the crossing wrists in front of the crotch
with the right palm facing out and the left palm facing in.
           Step back and ride  the tiger 03
Press the ground with the sole of the left foot. Continue to move
both hips to the right. Bow the right knee toward the south west
side. When the left leg is completely stretched out, with the left heel
as center, turn the left toe tips from facing east to facing southeast.
With the spine as center, rotate both hips and turn the upper body
completely toward the south side. Keep both arms at their original
state and move along with the turning of the body. Shift the crossing
point of both wrists toward the right thigh.

At this moment, the whole body is basically slanting forward toward
southwest in bow step.
             Step back and ride the tiger 04

With the right hip as center, shift and rotate the left hip forward. And
with the left hip and heel as axis, turn the left toe tips from facing
southeast to facing southwest. The whole body becomes slanting
forward toward southwest in bow step.

Both arms are basically in their original state and move along with the
turning of the body.
                     Step back and ride the tiger 05
Keep both hips and the right knee stable. With the internal power from the
waist and the leg, turn the torso from slanting forward to upright. Follow
through by relaxing the left hip. Raise the left leg and stretch the instep of
the left foot. Kick the left leg out toward the south west side.
While kicking the leg out, move the left and right forearms respectively
forward and backward. The right elbow and the right knee face each other.
The right palm is in standing position and the fingertips are at the same
height as the nose. The palm is facing left and the whole arm is in bending
state.
Stretching the left arm naturally. With the shoulder as center, slightly touch
the side of the rising thigh with the left arm and turn backward. Rotate the
left forearm leading the palm to face up. Turn the wrist and enclose the five
fingers to form a hooking shape.
