Master Chen Zhonghua’s Online lesson on August 27, 2020. This lesson focused on the following topics:
1. The rear foot, rear kua, front kua, front elbow, front hand will form a straight line 45 degrees upwards. This line does not connect to the upper body. This is an essential part of body postural change.
2. The shoulder cannot move forward with the arm.
3. The front kua pushed the front vertical line up all the way to the head, while the front shoulder pushes downward to form two opposite vertical lines: one up and one down.

This lesson also corrected many students online.
