          The snake creeps down
前式,单
鞭的终止
状态。


This is
finishing
posture
of the
Single
Whip.
    下势 01
用右脚撑地,直伸右腿,放松双胯,将双胯沿东西方向作直
线左移,重心亦随之由双腿平均承担移到左胯与左足跟连线
之上。同步地,以左足跟为中心,将左足尖由东南方转向东
方。在转动过程中,大腿方向要与左足方向始终保持一致。
上身向左侧倾斜,从右足到头顶处于同一直线。上身始终面
向南方。
右臂保持原状,随上身移动。左肩放松,籍重心左移之势,
将左前臂基本上在原来高度上由东南方转至东方,肘膝相
对,并以肘为中心,将前臂沿弧线提起然后再向东方下劈。
直到自手指到上臂在与左肩基本同高处呈自然直伸状态,掌
心向南。
视线随颈的左旋与手掌同步转向东方。
   下势 02
保持左侧胯、膝、腿的稳定,以左胯
为中心,略微前移右胯,同时以右胯
与右足跟连线为轴,转动右腿将右足
由西南方转向东南方,此时上身仍然
保持向东方的侧倾,由腰腿之劲将上
身由南方转为面向东南。
左臂处于原状;放松右肩,全身左转
之劲将左臂由东南方如软鞭似的沿上
图黄点轨迹摔向东方,掌向北,手指
置于左腕处。
  下势 03
以左足尖撑地,微提足跟,左腿由曲伸
直,右腿由直转曲,将双胯平稳推向西
方,重心转到右胯及足的连线上。此
时,左足跟自然地略向东移动。在转移
重心的同时,以右足跟为中心,将右足
尖由东南转向西南方。在转动时右大腿
与右足始终要保持同一方向。
上身仍然面向东南,随重心的左移,由
向东南的前倾转为向西南的侧后靠。
双手手指保持指向东方,右手指仍处于
左手腕上,双肘与重心的转移同步贴身
回收,直到左上臂轻贴身子左侧。
视线仍然注视东方。
   下势 04
以左足尖为中心,向左转动足跟。使足
掌由东南指向南方。同时,以右胯为中
心,前转左胯,使上身由面向东南的侧
后靠转为向南中正状态。重心仍然处于
左腿,左足跟还处于虚提状态。
由03,04相片看似乎双臂有很多的独立
位移,其实右前臂的位移仅由于随上身
的转动造成的。在此过程中,只是,以
双前臂为轴,双掌分别顺时针旋转90
度。然后,右手腕略向手背方向外扭,
左腕贴着右指而动,使左指指向右下方
而已。
视线始终注视手掌由东转向南下。
  下势 05

开胯,踏实左足跟。意识下沉,上身
略微向南方前倾,双臂乘势略微直伸
下插

注意要保持双腿,胯,膝的稳定。
  下势 06
以左足跟与左胯为轴承,转动直伸的左
腿,将足尖由南方转向东南。足尖虚提。
同步地,以右胯为中心,向左略转左胯,
使上身由南方略微向东南方转移。
右臂基本不动,只是转动右前臂使向外的
手掌转为向左。左臂基本保持原状,随转
身而动,同时转动左臂,使手掌由向内转
为向右,双掌在同一直线前后相向呼应。
意识关注于左腿的延伸方向。
  下势 07
以右掌撑地,右腿由曲伸直,左腿由直
转曲,将重心平稳地移向左腿,同步
地,以左足跟为中心,将左足由东南方
指向东方,并且以左胯为中心,略微左
移右胯将上身完全转向东南方,呈侧前
倾的状态。
双臂还是保持静止,随上身的身子的转
动而位移。
从右足跟到头顶呈一直线。意识关注于
前下方。
下势 08
以左胯为中心,继续左移右
胯,同时转动右腿,将左足
由西南方转向东南。上身由
东南转向正东方。

双臂随身而动。

此时达到典型的前倾偏正状

                                                              The snake creeps down 01
Press the ground with the right foot and straighten the right leg. Relax both hips and shift them horizontally to the left along the  east west direction.
Shift the weight center, which is originally shared evenly by both legs, to the connecting line between the left hip and the left foot.
At the same time, with the left heel as axis, rotate the left toe tips from the southeast to the east. During the turning, the direction of the thigh and the
direction of the left toe tips have to be the same during the whole process. The torso is slanting to the left side and forms a straight line from the right
foot to the top of the head. The upper body remains facing south.
Keep the right arm at its original state and shift according to the movement of the body. Relax the left shoulder. Following the shift of the weight
center to the left,  turn the left forearm at its original height from facing southeast to facing east. With both elbow and knee facing against each other,
use the elbow as the axis and raise the forearm up along a curving path and then chop down toward the east till the forearm and the left shoulder are
at the same height. Stretch out the arm naturally with the center of the palm facing south.  
Following the turning of the neck to the left, move the eyesight  at the same time with the palm toward the east.
                              The snake creeps down 02
Keep the left hip, knee and leg stable. With the left hip as center, shift the right hip slightly
forward. Take the connecting line between the right hip and the right leg as axis and rotate
the right leg turning the right foot from southwest to southeast. This time the torso is still
kept slanting sideway toward east. With the power from the waist and the leg, turn the
upper body from facing south to facing southeast.  
The left arm is at its original state. Relax the right shoulder. With the power from turning to
the left, fling the left arm like a soft whip from the southeast to the east following the track
as shown by the yellow dots in the picture. The palm is facing north and the fingers are
located close to the left wrist.
                                        The snake creeps down 03
Press the ground with the left toe tips. Raise the heel up slightly. Stretch the left leg and
bend the right leg. Move the hips steadily to the west. Shift the weight center to the
connecting line between the right hip and the right leg.
At this time, move the left heel naturally toward east. While shifting the weight center, with
the right heel as center, turn the right toe tips from facing southeast to facing southwest.
While making the rotation, the right thigh and the right foot are kept in the same direction.
The torso is still facing southeast. Following the shift of the weight center to the left, the
torso is turning from slanting toward the southeast to leaning toward southwest.
Keep fingers of both hands facing east with the right fingers still located close to the left
wrist. Withdraw both elbows close to the body at the same time when shifting the weight
center till the left forearm is slightly touching the left side of the body. Keep the eyesight
looking at the east.
                                    The snake creeps down 04
With the left toe tips as center, rotate the heel to the left leading the foot sole from
pointing to the southeast to pointing to the south. At the same time, with the right hip as
center, rotate the left hip forward turning the upper body from facing southeast and
leaning sideway to facing south and centering upright. The weight center is still located at
the left leg with the left heel rising slightly and insubstantially.
From picture 03 and 04, it looks like both arms are shifting independently. Actually, the
shifting of the right forearm is originated from the turning of the upper body.
During this whole process, with both forearms as axis, two palms are respectively rotating
for 90 degrees. And then with the right wrist twisting outward toward the back of the hand,
the left wrist attaches with the right fingers to move forward and leads the left fingers
pointing downward to the right.
The eyesight is kept looking at the palm from turning downward to the south from the east.
                     The snake creeps down 05
Open the hips and press firmly the left heel. With the sense of
sinking downward, the upper body is slightly slanting forward to
the south. Following the move, stretch slightly both arms and stick
them downward.
Pay attention to keep both legs, hips and knees stable.
                                The snake creeps down 06
With the left heel and the left hip as axis, rotate the stretched left leg and turn the toe
tips from facing south to facing southeast. Raise the toe tips insubstantially.
At the same time, with the right hip as center, turn the left hip to the left slightly rotating
the upper body  from the south to the southeast.
The right arm is essentially not moving. Turn the right forearm only and lead the palm
that facing out to become facing left. The left arm is basically kept at its original state
and moves along with the turning of the body. Rotate the left arm at the same time
leading the palm from facing inward to facing right. Both palms are lining up and in
concert with each other from the back to the front.
Keep the sense toward the extended direction of the left leg.
             The snake creeps down 07
Press the right palm toward the direction to the ground.
Stretch the right leg and bend the left leg. Shift the weight
center steadily toward the left leg. At the same time, with
the left heel as center, turn the left foot from the
southeast to the east. With the left hip as center, shift the
right hip slightly to the left turning the torso completely to
the southeast and leading it into a slanting state.

Both arms are kept in still and move along with the turning
of the body. The body forms a straight line from the right
heel to the top of the head. Put the sense downward to
the front.
      The snake creeps down 08
With the left hip as center, continue to shift
the right hip to the left. Rotate the right leg
at the same time. Turn the left leg from
southwest to  southeast. And rotate the
upper body from  southeast to  east. Both
arms are moving according to the shift of
the body.
At this time, the body is reaching the
typical state of slanting forward.
