Shaolin Yilutongbi Boxing: Form 45

Having set his torso erect, moved his right foot a step rightward, and bent his right knee, he stretches his left leg with his left foot being propped against the ground, shifts the weight of his torso mainly onto his right leg, and takes his left palm, which is now held horizontal and face upward, to his waist. While doing these moves, he flings his right palm, which now faces upward, rightward and upward. Presently he gazes at his right palm. (fig. 45)

Points claiming special attention from the practitioner are as follows: The move of moving his right foot rightward and that of flinging his right palm rightward and upward should be done at the same time. The move of flinging his right palm rightward and upward should be executed with force, so much so that the muscles in his right index finger are tautened.
