Shaolin Yilutongbi Boxing: Form 40

Having taken his palms to his chest, landed his left foot on the ground, and squatted down with his knees being bent to the full, he fully stretches his right leg rightward with his right sole falling flat on the ground, changes his palms into fists, and switches his left forearm clockwise and his right forearm counterclockwise for placing his forearms horizontal before his stomach, so as to set them aligned, with his fists staying apart and with their little-finger sides facing forward. Presently he looks to the right. (fig. 40)
Points claiming special attention from the practitioner are as follows: He should be agile in squatting down. The move of switching his forearms should be done with force.
