(42)(81)(99) 左右运手——
  Cloud hands
前式, 单鞭的终止状态。

由于本动作比较复杂,请在阅读文字说明
之前,仔细观看影视录像。

This is the finishing posture of
Single Whip.

As the movements of the following
posture are comparatively
complicated, kindly review the
relative video in details before
reading the description.
左右运手 01:
维持右臂形态基本不变, 以左足跟撑地及以左腿由曲转直之劲,
加之以左胯与左足根为轴使左足趾由东南方转向西南方,基本与
右足平行的综合运动,使重心由中间移向右边胯关节与右足的连
线之上。同时上身由面向南的中正转为向西南前倾的偏正状态。

以左肩与肘为中心转动左臂使左臂逐渐由曲在上照黄点最低处转
为自然伸直,然后又由直转曲,将左手指沿黄点所示的弧线置于
右手腕中间。同时籍匀速的以手臂为轴的转动,将左手掌由向外
转为向内。右手向上转动手腕逐渐张开手掌,使手指沿右前臂方
向指向西南上方。

在整个过程中转颈,视线由东南方转向西南前方
左右运手 02:
以右足根与外侧支撑地面及右腿由曲转直,左腿由直转
曲之劲将重心移至左胯与足足根的连线之上。上身含斜
飞势相似的侧靠之意,不同的是不要提起右足跟。

左上臂与前胸的相对位置基本不变,以前臂为轴,将手
掌尽量转向东面。同时以肘为中心,向东面转动前臂,
含推移迎面来击之物的意思,使左前臂的方向基本与上
身左倾的方向一致。

以右肩为中心,略微下移右肘,同时沿右腿方向自然直
伸右臂,将右掌面下,移到去大腿前的半途之处。   
视线仍然注视西南方。
左右云手 03:

以右足跟为支点旋转右胯-右足跟连轴,将右足尖转向东
南与左足平行;以脊髓为轴转腰,使上身由西南转向东
南;以左胯关节为中心,将上身转为前倾。此三动作起
止时间要均匀并相互协调。

视线随身转向东南前方。

右手继续以肩关节为中心右臂为半径下移至大腿旁。并
以臂为轴将右手掌转向东方。左手掌随左前臂的转动循
02中所述的反方向,转向东南方。
   左右云手 04:

双胯为轴,由鼓腰与收臀的劲将上身由前倾转
为向东南的中正,同时将右足带至左足旁。重
心仍处于左足。

右手指随以右肩与右肘为中心的转动从第一图
的黄点最底点循相似弧线运动直到将右手指置
于左手的拇指根旁为止。此时,右手掌向上,
双肘当基本处于同高。

左掌虽有向东南方微推之意,但劲当发自由
腰,腿。
       左右云手 05:

以右胯及右足跟连线为轴,将右膝与足尖同时转向
西南。转动时将重心由左足移到右足上。以脊髓为
中心,转腰,将面向东南的上身转为面南。视线随
转颈而转向西南。注意维持双胯与左膝在原位的稳
定。

维持右手臂与上身的相对位置不变,以肘关节为中
心,转动右前臂到基本垂直,右手指向上。右手掌
由面上尽量转为面西。以左肘为中心,向左大腿方
向转动前臂,使左臂自然直伸。左肘顺势略微下
降。
左右云手 06:

以左胯与左足跟连线为轴将左足尖与膝
转向西南。使左腿、左足与右腿、右足
平行。以脊髓为轴转腰将上身由南转向
西南。

右手保持原状,随转身而位移。左手臂
继续以肩为中心,全臂为半径循弧线下
旋,直至将手掌带到左大腿旁。手掌由
手臂的旋转由面下转为面右。
左右云手 07:

在不移动重心的情况下,以右胯为中心,
将上身由中正转为向西南的前倾,同时,
左腿以足掌触地,着意于足外侧左移直到
左腿伸直为止,双足基本平行。

全身成偏正状态。此时体态与01时基本相
同。

Keep the status of the right arm basically unchanged. Push the left heel against the floor and stretch the bended left
leg. In addition, with the left hip and left heel as axis, turn the left toes from facing southeast to facing southwest and
place the left foot in parallel with the right foot. With the power generated from these comprehensive movements, shift
the weight center from the middle to the top of the connecting line between the right hip and the right leg. The upright
torso is turning from facing south to facing southwest and slanting at the same time.

With the left shoulder and elbow as center, rotate the bended left arm and stretch it naturally at the same time following
the path of the yellow dots as shown in the picture. Place the left fingers in the middle of the right wrist. With the steady
rotation of the axis of the arm, turn the left palm from facing out to facing in. While turning and moving the right hand
upward, gradually open the palm and lead the fingers to point to the upper side of the southwest corner along the
direction of the right forearm.

Rotate the neck accordingly during the process and turn the eyesight from southeast to southwest.
                                                                               Cloud hands 02
From the comprehensive motions of grounding the right heel and the outer side of the right foot, stretching the right leg
and bending the left leg, shift the weight center to the top of the connecting line between the left hip and the left heel. The
upper body has the sense of slanting sideway similar to the posture of Slant Flying with only difference of not raising the
right heel.

The relative position of the left forearm and the chest is basically unchanged. With the forearm as axis, rotate the palm as
much as possible to face east. At the same time, with the elbow as axis, turn the forearm toward the east side with the
sense of pushing against an incoming attack. The direction of the left forearm is essentially the same as the slanting
direction of the upper body.

With the right shoulder as center, move the right elbow down slightly. Stretch out the right arm along the direction of the
right leg. The right palm is facing down and is moving half way to the front of the right thigh. The eyesight is still looking at
the southwest side.
                                                                                Cloud hands 03
With the right heel as supporting point, rotate the axis between the right hip and the right heel. Move the right toes to point
southeast and make it parallel with the left foot. With the spine as axis, rotate the waist and turn the torso from facing
southwest to facing southeast. With the left hip joint as center, slant the upper body forward. The timing of starting and
ending of these three movements has to be even and coordinated. Following the turning of the body, the eyesight is
looking at the southeast side.

With the shoulder joint as axis and the right arm as radius, the right hand is continuing to move down to the side of the
thigh. With the arm as axis, turn the right palm to face east.
Following the turning of the left arm, rotate the left palm to face southeast according to the opposite direction as mention
under 02.    
                                                                               Cloud hands 04
With both hips as axis and through the power as generated by rounding the lower back and lowering down the buttock,
bring the upper body from slanting forward to upright and to face southeast. Move the right foot to the side of the left foot
at the same time with the weight center still on the left foot.
Through the turning of the right shoulder and elbow as center, move the right hand along the path of the yellow dots
starting from the bottom as shown in picture 1 and lead the right figures upward till it come close to the base of the left
thumb. At this moment, the right palm is facing up and both elbows are essentially at the same height.
Though the left palm has the sense of pushing slightly to the southeast, the power is in fact originated from the waist and
the legs.  
                                                                                Cloud hands 05
With the connecting line of the right hip and heel as axis, turn both right knee and toes to the southwest side. Shift the
weight center from the left leg to the right leg while making the turn. With the spine as center, rotate the waist and turn the
torso from facing southeast and facing south. The eyesight is turning to look at southwest through rotation of the neck.
Pay attention to keep both hips and left knee at their original positions.
Keep the related positions of the right arm and upper body unchanged. With the elbow joint as center, rotate the right
forearm to a vertical position with the right figures pointing upward. Turn the right palm from facing up to facing west as
much as possible. With the left elbow as center, rotate the forearm along the direction of the left thigh making the left arm
to stretch out naturally. Lower the left elbow down slightly in due course.
                              Cloud hands 06
With the connecting line of the left hip and heel as axis, turn
the left toes and knee toward southwest leading the left leg
and foot in parallel with the right foot. With the spine as axis,
rotate the waist and turn the upper body from facing south to
facing southwest.
Keep the right hand at the same state and shift its position
along with the turning of the body. With the shoulder as
center and the arm as radius, continue to move the arm down
in a curving direction till the hand is placed just next to the left
thigh. Through the turning of the arm, the palm becomes from
facing down to facing right.
                            Cloud hands 07
Under the condition of not shifting the weight center, with
the right hip as center, rotate the torso from up right to
slanting and facing southwest. At the same time, through
grounding of the bottom of the left foot, move the outer
edge of the foot intentionally to the left till the left leg is
completely stretched out and the both feet are basically
parallel.

The whole body is in the slanting state which essentially is
the same as the posture of 01.
