Turning body and kick with lift heel 01
With the spine as center, relax both hips and stably rotate the whole body from facing east to facing northeast. Following this
move, withdraw the left leg and have the tiptoes insubstantially touching the ground and placed near the right side of the
With both shoulders as center, move both elbows downward to the front of the chest. At the same time, with the elbows as center
rotate both forearms leading the left arm to outside and the right arm to inside. Both wrists cross in front of the neck and
both hands hold fists.
This time inspect whether the whole body is in a centralized condition. For the upper body, the arms and the back are encircled
and expanding outward. The lower back is rounded, the buttock is lowered down and the hips are relaxed. The weight center is
evenly located between the right heel and the left toes preparing the rotation of the body.

Ensure the spine is at the same position and in centralizing state. Rotate the whole body stably from facing northeast to facing west by using

insubstantial left leg is still grounding with the tiptoes.
During this process of rotation, pay attention to the coordination and steadiness of the left and right shoulders, hips, knees and legs. It is
rather common that beginners usually will sway both shoulders excessively and have the problem of twisting the whole body unevenly.
Keep both arms steady and take both forearms as axis. Maintain the contact point of both wrists stable and exchange the positions of the left

forward to the west with the left heel. Lift up the
tiptoes as mush as possible.
Synchronize the stamping of the left leg by releasing
the left fist into palm. Following the downward chop
to the west, the left arm stretches out naturally in the
same height as the shoulder. At the same time,
release the right fist into palm to face west and chop
down toward the north. Stretch out the right arm
naturally in the same height as the right shoulder.
