Where you practice, you should first stand upright, with your chest folded, hips protruding back, current vision, if you have an angry face, left and right palms, arms and legs vertical, knees close together, and heels and toes alike. Keep your arms straight to the left and right, and raise your palms into a circle. Wait for your hands to be raised to the top of your head, with the palms upward, such as holding a kilogram of weight.
Keep your hands as low as possible and keep your eyes level. Move up and down. Move your upper body forward slowly until your palms cover the ground. The more you go down, the better it will be.
However, the legs must still be straight and not bent slightly. The upper part of the body should be tilted upward slowly, and the arms should be forced to press down to the left and right.
When the two palms pass, they must still form a circle and return to the upright position. Only move slowly and form a group of four times before entering the next move. (Figures 1, 2 and 3).
2. Look after all the pains and injuries
Connected type; Stand upright, turn your head slowly to the right, try to look at the rear and try to peep at the left heel. When turning your head, fold your chest, don’t move your body, don’t tilt your shoulders, and turn your head forward to recover.
Turn your head slowly to the left, try to look at the back, try to peep at the right heel, turn your head forward and recover slowly. The practice times are the same as above (Fig. 5 and 6).
3. Push the window to look at the moon to get angry
Connected type; Keep your feet left and right apart and form a horse riding posture. Keep your chest out and don’t lean forward. Clench the two fists, place them at the waist, palm up, and squat down with the left leg as straight as a floor brocade. The left hand hugs to the left, and the right hand pushes to the right, and the body then turns to the right. At the same time, the right leg bends forward, and the eyes focus on the right palm to push the window and look at the moon.
Squat down and straighten your right leg, hug your right hand to the right, push your left hand to the left, and then move your body to the left. Focus on the left palm, step in with your left foot, restore the upright posture, and do it in the opposite direction according to law, but in the same direction and the same number of times. (figures 6, 7 and 8).
4. No effort in grasping and hitting the air
Connected type; Separate your feet left and right into a horseback pose. Hold your fists tightly, place them at your waist, and hit with your right hand forward. The fist is flat with the shoulder, the palm is down, the left fist is still, and the fingers of the right hand are open and carried back.
If the person grabs the object, he will pull it back with a strong force, then hold it tightly as a fist, still place it at the waist, and hit it forward with his left hand at the same time.
With the palm down, hit the right fist forward, grasp the left fist backward, and then change the fist to close at the waist until the leg is sore. The recovery of left foot treading is commonly known as catching and hitting the air (Figures 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13).
