Shaolin Yilutongbi Boxing: Form 44

Having taken his left palm, now facing upward, to a point in front of his stomach, he directs his right palm to ascend to a point above his head. From that point the palm is directed to move successively leftward and then backward until it comes to a point off the back of his head. From that point his right palm is directed to move rightward to reach a point beside his right ear. At that point his right palm is changed into a fist.While doing these moves, he turns right 90°,moves his right foot to stamp the ground closely beside his left foot, and, having bent his knees until his thighs are horizontal, crushes his right fist into his left palm. Now he looks into distance. (fig.44-1, fig. 44-la)

Points claiming special attention from the practitioner are as follows: All moves must be executed methodically. The move of bending his knees until his thighs are horizontal should be done in sync with the move of crushing his right fist into his left palm. The sound from stamping his right foot on the ground should be clearly audible. The crushing of his right fist into his left palm should be done with force. The muscles in his right fist should be-come tautened for the exertion.
