The axis of the body : it is the direction in which one looks when one looks
infront of oneself.
Place yourself facing N, feet parallel, shoulder-width apart, with your arms along your thighs :
To obtain the width of your shoulders, place a footvis-a-vis at north and the other perpendicular, inside and not behind the first foot. The two heels are touching. You can then bring back the second foot parallel with the first, the two points being placedon an East-West imaginary line.
The axis of the feet passes by the second toe (beside the big one) and the meridian of the heel.
The weight is in the middle of the feet, neither on the heel, nor on the point, distributed along all the foot. It is also in the middle of the body.
Placing itself thus becomes natural with time.
The regard is far, the arms go up parallel, the two palms face each one.
The impression is of holding a large balloon between your hands but also
bathing the centre line of your body with this balloon. Having arrived at
the height of the shoulders, the hands turn, fingers slightly raised,
palms slightly pushed down near the base. Gradually, the wrists break,
theidea is to push downwards with the base of the palms (the
part towards the wrist). At the same time the elbows subside. The hands
and the elbows approach the body as they go down. The hands take a
horizontal position while arriving at semi-thigh, the fingers directed
towards the front one.
The legs remain right, do not bend your knees and do not lean behind them.
The body drops slightly, by bending the knees, while being slightly rolled up on the top of the stomach. The left hand almost does not move; just a very small distance towards the left. The right hand rises in front of oneself, horizontal, palm towards the ground, from the interior towards the outside of the body.There is a very large sphere under this hand. The wrist is rounded, the ends of the fingers are directed towards the left. The hand arrives at the solar plexus distant of this one of approximately 35 cm. The right arm forms half a circle.
Then, the head turns to the North-East. The weight passes completely to the right leg, the right hip is above the right knee, above the heel too. It isnecessary to turn the head from the base of the neck, as though coiling or uncoiling a spring. The head continues its rotation towards the E, then the shoulders, the size and the hips return in their normal position, which causes the body to rotate on the right leg, while keeping the weight there. The left shoulder is North, the right South. The right foot is directed towards the East, the left foot has not moved. The hips are perpendicular to the leg which carries the weight, as a generalrule. During this rotation, the right hand has moved away from the body, the elbow has opened so that the arm forms a round-off in front of the body, the hand is not rounder but flat, the slightly broken wrist, the end of the fingers slightly raised. The left hand is above the left foot, in the same orientation. Onepushes back vis-a-vis with oneself. The regard is on the right hand as it rises?????? of the body, then looks at on the right, collects the right hand when the body returns in the axis, then looks far in front.
The right hand keeps moving away slowly from the body, the head turns towards the left, vis-a-vis N, the body turns a little towards North-East. The left hand bends, fingers towards the ground, palm towards the body. The hand rises while bringing back the left foot. It arrives in front of the plexus, the fingers directed right. The left leg is directed northwards, the foot hangs, slightly in the air. While the hand goes up, the body turns still a little to the left, vis-a-vis with the north-north-east. Then one poses the left foot in front of oneself, the point a little eastwards.The external edge of the foot is directed in north, or a little more towards the interior if it is more comfortable, but the heel must be outside the right heel, or on the same line according to morphology. The body is turned vis-a-vis to north, the right hand goes down to semi-thigh, directed in the same direction as the right foot, palm towards the ground. The left hand goes up on the level of the bottom of the chest, palm towards oneself, fingers on the right. The arm is rounded. You pass the weight while pushing with the back of the left hand. The left knee is above the toes, but it does not exceed them. The hips are perpendicular to the left leg which carries the weight. The right leg remains slightly bent, the knee does not fall but on the contrary it is pushed slightly backwards, above the toes, according to the opening of the left elbow. The regardis placed on the interior of the left hand then far in front.
Like the 3
movement, but symmetricaly, the head turns to the right, the right hand
brings back the right foot. First right hand swells, fingers towards the
ground, palm towards the body. Then the hand rises while bringing back right
foot. the body turns on the right towards north-east. The right hand ends
its movement horizontally, palm up, fingers towards the left. The left
hand has just turned on itself, palm to the ground, fingers ahead(East).
The right arm is round, quite horizontal. The two hands are at the height of
the plexus. Your left hand is towards your right elbow. The two hands look
like a cross.
Then you put down your right foot forward, to the East. Finish turning your body to the East, then move your weight (body) to your right foot. The idea is to catch an arm by the wrist and the elbow, then to push it. The sight is to the right when the right hand come up, then inside the right palm, then far away.
The hands turn while they go farther, then a little to the up, then a
little down to be at the same height as at the beginning. You have turned the
arm you just have caught, without letting it go. The left hand just
turn on its axis, palm to the sky. The right hand (it's quite harder to
explain...) : just release your wrist, letting your fingers go down,
then turn your forearm until your fingers point the sky. You have your cross
again. Round your left
arm, specially your left wrist, but don't round your fingers, keep them
Your shoulders turn to the left, your head facing the north, your weight on the left leg, your hips turned, following the shoulders, to the left leg. You watch your right hand, without bending the head. Do not press your right arm on your body, keep a circle there too. Push you right elbow outside, your left knee, too.
Then the head faces the East. The left hand goes slowly to the North in a little vertical circle, then come back against the right wrist, palm to the East. Thismove can be just a rotation of the left front-arm going a little back to the North-West,or as described above, a circle to the North. It's your choice. The right hand turns, palm towards the West, fingers to the North. Still a circle with your right arm (horizontal). A second circle with your left arm (vertical). The body turns to the right. The left hand comes to the right hand, wrist to wrist. Your regard is on that cross, then far away. Then you come back on your right leg. Open your fingers, bend your wrists.
The left hand comes over the right wrist, fingers to the ground. The palm
is towards you.The right hands turns too, fingers to the ground, palm
towards you. Then the two hands go away from each other. The arms are
parrallel, not tendus???.
Then the two hands become horizontal. Push up with your the back of your hands while raising the arms until you're at the level of your neck. Then bring your hands back to you, as in the 1 st movement. You move on your back leg (it's the left one). Move your hands to your belly, but not too far down (not to your low-belly).Then you turn your fingers to the sky, the palms facing each other. All your attention is on the external side of your hands. You move on your right leg, you look far away. Don't push !!!!! Just move on. Your legs are still bent.
Relax your wrists, let your hands become quite horizontal but with the finger
tips a little up, put your weight on the back leg. Turn your
shoulders to the left, followed by the head, your hands
raise to the height of your eyes,thepalms outside. The left hand is a
little horizontal, the fingers towards the right. Keep moving until you
face the North-West. The right foot turns with the right hand, until it
faces the NNW. At that time your body is towards the NW. Your
eyes watch the back of your left hand, then to the NW. Then the two hands
go palm down down to half-thigh. Then they move to be palm towards you,
fingers towards the ground. Turn your head to NE, let your right hand go
away in the NE, the weight follows.
When you are totally on the right leg, the right hand goes up to the eyes. The fingers still face the ground, all joined together. The left hand is under the right hand, facing the belly, still palm towards you, but the fingers to the East. The left foot come close on half-point, the body is turned to the N-E. The left thigh opens to the W. Do not contract your belly in this move; take a little time to relax while you're on your right leg. Then the left hand raises up in front of your body up to your eyes (just alittle bit under).You look inside this hand. Then you turn your head to the W, you put your leftfoot towards the W. Move back your shoulders and your hips, facing the W. The right arm quite doesn't move, just a little opening at the end. Then the left hand turns fingers to the sky, then palm to the north, push the external side to the W as your hand goes slightly down to the plexus. You look at your left hand when it turns. Your weight is still on your right leg, the right hand a little bit more raised than the left one, upper the right shoulder too. Turn with all your body, from shoulders to the hips. When you are completely to the W, pass your weight. You look far away, your attention is on the external side of your left hand. Open slightly your right shoulder to move your right hand above your right foot. The right hand stays upper your shoulders, the left hand is lower.
Turn your head to the N, with all your weight on your left leg. Turn your leftfoot slightly, about 5 degre. Then turn your body. Move your hands towards each other, in front of you, emptying your wrists, the left hand near the right elbow, the two hands opened horizontal, right palm to the left, left palm to the right.Move your right foot near your left foot, then move it half-step in front, on its heel, toes up. Relax yourlegs, check your back, your head, let your knees go away from each other, still above the toes.The idea is to catch a fist coming from N. You press the wrist with your left hand and the elbow with your right hand. Your fingers are a little turned to the sky.
The head turns a little to the left, the shoulders turn more. The left hand goes behind, the right hand follows. When your right hand faces the left hip, the left hand comes back on a verticalcircle to the right shoulder. The right arm is round the right palm turned to you. The left palm is to the N. The hips do not move; just turn yourshoulders. At the end you bring back your right foot on its half-point. Thehead faces the N-N-W. The idea is topull the arm you'd caught before, then you strike the face of your opponent with your left hand.
Make a step with your right foot to the N-N-W. Pass your weight, you're just pushing in your left hand. When your weight is on your right leg, turn your head to the W. Then all your body turns to the W, the right arm goes up, the left hand goes down, it moves near the right elbow,then down beside the left tigh.The right hand moves up to the throat with the palm facing you, then it turns outside going a little to your right, over your eyes. The left foot comes near the right heel, then towards the W, on the half-point. We push with the external side of the left hand to the left, with the right hand to the up and right. Your left hand is in the same direction as the left foot, towards the W, at a little distance from your body. You have to be very relaxed in this move, very smart, really imagine you are a bird opening your wings to show how beautiful you are. All three members (2 hands and left foot) come at the end at the same time. You look at the W.
Your head turns a little to the left, your shoulders turn a little more to
the left too. The right hand moves down turning opposite to the former
move. The palm is up, fingers to the S, the arm is rounded in front of the
stomach, the hand is quite on your left. The left hand turns palm to the
sky, fingers to the S-S-W, raising on the left, bending the elbow. You watch
your left hand,your attention on the palm, pushing to the sky. When the
hand is at the height of your shoulders, turn your head to the right, face to
moving back your shoulders in an NE-SW axis. The left arm keeps moving, the
pushes to the right, to the North. Your left palm is to the North, fingers
are to the sky. The arm is an horizontal circle infront of you. It turn
around the elbow. Look at the back of your hand. The right hand turns palm to
N-W as it verticaly moves in the following of the shoulder, towards the
N-E, up to the high of the shoulders. Then bend your right arm, moving your
hand to your ear, palm towards you, fingers to the sky. Open your fingers
as much as possible. Relax your elbow, let it go a little down. Bending
the arm makes your left leg opening, making a step to the W. Put your heel,
then all the foot. Your left arm is still at the height of the shoulders.
Then you turn your shoulders towards the W, the right hand moves to the middle
your chest, the left hand pushes forward then to the left, moving down near
your left knee, semi-thigh.The right hand, palm to the S,fingers up,
moves away. Push in your right elbow too, to keep your arm circle. We say
"brush the knee" but the hand is not so down, it is semi-thigh. You
see your hand coming in the middle ofyour chest, but don't look at it. Then
lookfront of you. Your attention is on the external side of your right
Don't bend your fingers !!!
Then pass you weight on the left leg.
Explanation : bat away a right fist with your right hand while turning your body to avoid the kick. Push your opponent's right shoulder with your left hand, push him to your right, then push him with the left hand and hit him with your right hand.
Push a little more your right hand, move your weight all on your left
leg,move up a little your right feet. Don't go up yourself, just turn a
little your shoulders, following the push. Don't move your left hand.
Then put your right foot back, a little more on the S than before, the point is behind the left heel, in a N-N-W direction. Then turn your hips to the right leg, and move back, just pass your weight on the right leg. The two hands come closer, the left a little more above the right. Move your hand and your arms only when you are on yourright leg. The right hand is palm to the ground, close to the left elbow. The left palm is towards the sky. Move your left foot just a little up then down on its heel, toes up. The idea there is to catch an arm, as in the 4 th movement.
Turn your shoulders to the right, your arms and your hands turn together to bein the same position as in the 11 th movement before you make the step. Your left hand is palm towards the ground, your left arm is in a circle in front of you, the hand in the mid of your chest.
In this move, we'll brush the right knee as we did the left in the move before, with a step. First turn your head to the S-S-W, put your right hand horizontal, your body turns to the left, the left hand turns palm to the sky, pulling the left feet's point, then moving away to the S-E following the left shoulder. You must have all your weight on your left leg, beware of your knee, it has tostay in the axis of the leg, over thefoot's point. Your foot comes to the S-S-W. The left hand turns slowly palm to the front, quite S-W, in a verticalplan. Fingers are to the outside. Then bend your elbow, hand toward the ear. Make your step (right leg), put your heel, then your foot. Your right arm is still in front of you, at the height of your shoulders. Turn your shoulders back to the W, move your left hand to the middle of your chest, while your right hand goes slowly outside your right thigh. Your left hand is palm to the N, the right hand is palm to the ground, in the same direction as your right foot. Then pass your weigh to your right leg.
This is the symetric of "brushing right knee".You just turn your right feet to make a step, your arms follow the movement towards the right, then brush left knee.
Turn your head slightly to the right, your shoulders follow towards the
NW. Bend your right wrist, palm up. Your fingers pull the end of your
right foot. KEEP all your weight on that right leg, DON'T move backwards.
You must open that right
hip. You push in your left hand towards the N. You are also giving from your
left hand into your right hand. Move your right arm up to the level of
the right shoulder while turning your palm to the N-N-W. Fingers are
horizontal. Your left hand becomes horizontal too, palm to the
ground, fingers to the N, in the mid of your chest, circle in front of you.
Then bend your right arm, move your right hand palm to your ear, fingers to the sky. Make the step with your left leg, put your heel, then all your foot. Your right arm and your left leg move together, onebending, the other extending. Move back your shoulders to the W, your left hand brushes your left knee, the right hand moves down to the middle of your chest. You push towards. Your left hand is outside your knee, palm still to the Earth. Put your attention on the external side of your left hand, then on the external side of your right hand. Look far in the distance.
It's the same as the 12 th .
It's the same as the 13 th .
Close your right hand to make a fist, move it down, "eye of the tiger" to
the SE. While moving down your fist, turn your shoulders and your head to
the SW. Move your shoulders first. Following your shoulders, open your left
leg as before in "brushing the (right) knee".
Your fist come closer, your left hand goes away from your body to the SE. then lift your two hands, the fist front of you, your left hand away in the SE. Move your right foot close to your left foot.
Then turn to the right your right leg, put down your foot, heel first. Don't put your foot too far, your knee must be on a little angle. Then turn your shoulders to the right, move to your right leg, turn your fist to push outside with your right arm. Your fist goes a little away from you, but keep your arm rounded. Then move your left hand near your ear, palm to you, fingers to the sky. Lift your left heel. Turn your body to the NW, your right arm to the N. Then move your left hand away to the W, follow with your leg, the fist comes to the foe. Move your left hand to be horizontal-vertical. I mean, palm to the N, fingers to the W.
Then turn your left hand, fingers up. Move it a little back. Bring your fist, "eye of the tiger" to the sky. Your left hand comes close to your right wrist (as to protect it). While moving your hands, turn your body to the W. Finally move your weight to your left leg. Your arms are a circle front of you.
Look to the West.
Turn your shoulders a little to the left, move your fist forward, in a
little circle to the left. Your left hand turns, fingers to the front, palm
to the ground, moving in a little circle on your left. Then turn your left
hand's palm to the sky, fingers towards your right elbow, move your hand just
behind your right elbow. In the same time, turn your right fist, "eye of the
tiger" to the N-W, then open your fist, palm to the sky, fingers forward.
Then turn your shoulders to the right, move your weight back to your right
your arms, your left hand moving forward, pull your right hand in the CREUX
of your left elbow, your both palms are still up, both arms parallel. Turn
your shoulders to the left, facing the W.
Then move your hands closer to your foe and RATE , turn them palm to the Earth, both hands lightly up. The elbows are near your body, on each side. Move your weight to the front leg, pushing in the fingers.
La tête se tourne au N, puis les shoulders et le bodyreviennent face au N. On tourne sur la leg left, le foot leftest lui aussi orienté au N. Les deux hands se sont redressées,doigts vers le ciel, paume vers l'extérieur, au N. Pendant larotation du body, les deux hands se sont éloignées, pourrepousser avec les tranchants vers l'W avec la hand left et l'estavec la hand right. Le arm left est orienté N-W, le rightN-est. Les deux hands sont au niveau du cou. Puis la tête regardela hand left, puis la hand right, puis de nouveau au N. On fait unpetit cercle avec la hand left qui vient ramasser au niveau de l'estomac,puis monte au niveau de la gorge. Les doigts se tournent d'abord vers laleft, puis vers le bas, paume vers soi et un peu vers le ciel, puis lahand est à l'horizontale devant l'estomac, puis reste dans leprolongementde l'avant-arm. La hand right fait elle aussi un cercle, mais plus grand,elle vient ramasser au niveau du bas-ventre. La hand right passe àl'extérieur de la hand left. Les deux hands arrivent en mêmetemps au niveau du plexus, les wrists sont croisés, sans se toucher.Les arm sont arrondis, les paumes sont face à soi, mais aussi unpeu vers le haut, de manière à ne pas se recroqueviller maisgarder une ouverture. Toujours l'idée de pousser dans les elbows.Puis remonter les deux hands ensemble à la gorge. S'enrouler quandon ramasse, ouvrir la poitrine quand les hands passent devant.
