Turn Body and Throw fist 01
Emit power from the left heel as well as the outer side of the left foot. With extension of the bended left leg
and control of the hips and waist, shift the body weight to the right leg. The right leg is bended in due course.
With the connecting line of the right hip and right heel as axis, form a bow step by moving the right knee and
foot to point west . Pay attention that the joints of the knee and the hips should not sway while turning.
Finally, the left side of the body from the heel through the waist to the head is forming a straight line. And the
weight center is essentially located between the right hip and the right foot. The positions of the torso and the
right arm are relatively unchanged. Following the rotation of the right hip and the right foot, turn the upper
body from south to west for 22.5 degrees. Coordinate the turning with the joints of the left shoulder and the
elbow. Stretch out the left arm and let it falls toward the direction of the left leg. The palm is facing the left leg
with height as shown in the picture.

Following the rotation of the body, move the extended left
arm along a curve line till it is positioned next to the left
thigh. Turn the left forearm leading the palm to face east.

With the front part of the right foot pressing to the ground, slightly lift the heel.
By extending the right leg and bending the left leg, move the weight center steadily to
the connecting line between the left hip and the left heel. Bring the slanting body to
an upright position remaining to face south. The right forearm is relatively kept in
the same position. With the elbow as center, rotate the forearm till the whole arm
becomes a straight line pointing to the west. During this process, grasp the right hand
into a fist with the upper part facing the south. While the body is sitting back, turn
the left hand into a fist as well and move it toward the crotch. Turn the left wrist
slightly toward the direction of the thumb. Level the eyesight to the west.

The body is moving from the sitting position
to the forward bow step, according to the all
the essential requirements as outlined in the
first summary. Under the condition of not
changing the position of the right elbow and
through the turning of the forearm, punch down
with the back of the fist till the forearm is
levelly pointing to the west. The left fist is
still stationed next to the right elbow.

Maintain the upright state. Stretch out the
right leg grounding with the right heel and lift
the toes up. Avoid the shifting of the weight
center. Keep the right elbow at the same
position. With the right elbow as center, rotate
the forearm toward the upper right side and
place the right fist in front of the right
shoulder at the same height as the nose. The
upper part of the fist is facing north. The left
fist is still kept next to the right elbow.

Keep the spine straight. With the left hip as
center and the back turning of the right hip as
driving power, move the torso from facing
southwest to facing west. Following the rotation
of the body, slightly withdraw the right foot.
Move both elbows inward at the same time.
Respectively use both elbows as center and turn
the forearms upward. Pile up both arms with the
back of the fists facing upward and the center of
the fists facing inward.

Withdraw the left hip further. Lower the buttock and round the lower back. Move the
weight center further back. Following this motion, slide the right toes backward till
it is roughly in a foot distance from the left foot. Rotate the joints of the shoulder
and elbow. Move the slightly bended right arm downward along a curve line leading the
fist closed to the navel with distance of a fist. Move the left fist toward the navel
at the same time. Both fists meet in front of the navel.
The back of both fists are facing upward while the upper part of the fists are facing
inward. The fists are facing each other at the same height. Slightly rotate both arms
outward forming an expanded circle with the back of the body. Intensify the sense of
opening the hips, rounding the lower back and lowering down the buttock at the same time
