Wild horse rufflies mane （R）01
With the bottom of the right foot pressing on the ground, extend the right leg and shift the weight center to the left side. While making
the shift, with the spine as center, turn the torso from facing southwest to facing west. With the left heel as center, turn the left foot from
facing south to facing southwest.
Finally the weight center is located on top of the vertical line between the hip and the foot on the left side. The upper body is still in an
While making the turn, the right arm following the rotation of the body is moving from the west to northwest. Open the hooked right hand
into palm with fingers also pointing to the northwest. With the right arm as axis, rotate the palm toward the left side. Following the
momentum, sink down the right elbow leading the right arm into a bend shape.
When rotating the body, sink down the left elbow toward the right side leading the upper arm slightly touching the chest on the left side.
Rotate the left forearm so that it is basically in parallel with the right arm pointing upward toward the northwest side. At this time, pay
attention to withdraw the left hip ensuring that the upper body in upright. Turn the neck with eyesight moving toward the northwest side.

While keeping the upright position, withdraw the insubstantial right
leg by moving the toe tips next to the toe tips of the left foot and
slightly touching the floor. Following this move, slant the right
forearm down in front of the chest and move the left palm next to
the right shoulder at the same time.
With the right shoulder as center, rotate and withdraw the right
arm. The whole arm stays close to the torso and is basically in
parallel with the left forearm. The right palm is facing back to the
The whole body is in an upright state.

Maintain the whole body stable. Relax
the right hip. While keeping the
right foot in parallel with the left
foot, move it toward the northwest
side till the right leg is stretching
out grounding with the right heel and
with attention on the inner side of
the right foot.

With the bottom of the left foot pressing on the ground, straighten the right leg and bend the right leg. Ground solidly
with the outer edge of the right foot. While keeping both hips stable, shift the weight center to the connecting line
between the hip and the heel on the right side.
Turn the torso from upright into slanting. With the right hip as center, rotate the left hip and turn the body from
facing west to facing southwest.
While the torso is leaning to the left, pay attention not only to the shoulder but also the whole part from the back of
shoulder to the right waist is following the rotation of the body to make a leaning twist. The entire movement of the
twisting lean should be even and stable.
The outlook of the both arms is basically unchanged. However, when making the leaning twist, with both shoulder joints
relaxed, the left and right arms should have the sense of gathering from the up and down directions like a spring
preparing for the next spring-open movement.
Pay attention that when gathering the arms the emphasis is on the sense and not creating tension in the muscle.
Wild horse rufflies mane （R）05-06
05-06 should be a continuing movement. For the sake of explaining clearly the moving direction of the arms, the movement
is shown by two steps.
It has to be emphasized here that the arms should carry the sense of spring-open through the gathering process from the
This spring-open power comes from the waist, hips and legs. This is rather similar to the description under the third
stage of summary about casting the arms while flinging the body.
The power is combined with three parts.
(1) The outward turning power from the respective legs.
(2) The spring power from opening the hips and rounding the back.
(3) The left rotation power from the spine. Beginners should not force the movement. Instead, the first step is to
coordinate and even the movements between the waist, hips and legs. And through the process of coordination, feel with
the body the essence of this movement.
When casting the arms, the status of the body is basically unchanged. The path of movement of both arms is like this.
With the right shoulder as center, move the right elbow toward the upper right side till it is facing against the right
At the same time, with the elbow joint as center, bend the right arm forming nearly a right angle with the forearm. The
right palm is at the same height with the face with inner side of the palm facing inward. Rotate the left shoulder and
elbow joints leading the left palm to move along the right forearm till both hand facing each other in the midway. Carry
on to cast the left hand toward the southwest side till the left arm is naturally stretching out with the palm facing
down and the fingers pointing to the southwest side near the height of the left shoulder.
Please observe the movement in details through the video concerning the moving path of the both arms and make reference
to the description of this page.

Stretch the right leg and bend the left leg. Shift the weight center to the left side. Turn the torso from slanting to
the right to upright and rotate the body from facing northwest to facing west.
Naturally stretch out the right hand toward the northwest side with the palm facing down and at the same height as the
right shoulder. Rotate the left shoulder and elbow joints and withdraw the right arm leading the forearm slightly
touching the left side of the chest. The left forearm and the right arm are in parallel pointing to the northwest side.
This time the status of the body is essentially going back to the finishing posture of Wild Horse Ruffling Mane On The
From the beginning of 02 to the finishing of 06, all the movements are the same as Wild Horse Ruffling Mane On The
