3l. Step Forward to Strike
(l) Shift the weight backward, toes of the right foot raised and outward. Turn the left palm up and move it back slightly. Bend the right elbow and thread the palm forward over the left forearm, palm oblique outward. Look ahead. (Fig.l67)
(2) Land the right foot, shift the weight forward, and turn the body to the right. Move the right palm forward from the left, then to the right in an arc, and the left palm to the right and backward in an arc and pull it back in front of the abdomen. Look at the right palm. (Fig.l68)
(3) Move the left foot one step forward. Move the right palm an arc outward and clench the fist by the right side of the waist, knuckles down. Move the left palm to the left and then forward in an arc, and clench it as it stops in front at shoulder level, knuckles up and thumb side oblique inward. Look at the left fist. (Fig.l69)
(4) Land the left foot and shift the weight forward to form the left bow step. The right fist strikes forward from the waist at shoulder level, with knuckles thumb side up. Place the left fist slightly backward under the right wrist, thumb side down. Look at the right fist. (Fig.l70)
Points for attention: The palm movements should be continuous and smooth. Turn the waist first to the right and then to the left when striking forward with the right fist.
