After some time of training and looking at master chen’s videos I feel confident enough to post a video. Any feedback is welcome. I’m planning to post some more on the other basic exercises.

The playback is not smooth through the entire video. Do others have the same problem when viewing the video?

Hi Kelvin,

Maybe close all other applications if you had some open.

I also did an upload to youtube. I hope this will work.

I’ve edited the post to use youtube.

Any input is welcome ;). I’m a beginner and have just the video’s as a reference.

Very good! On the left hand circle, you need to go out (second half) more with your hand. The elbow was in the way.

Mr. Chen do you mean I was using the elbow to much when going out? As in: The elbow is to leading. Thank you for your comment.
