*** Personal notes on the video instructions ***
– All pinyin is written in full capitals with tone indicated as a number following it (easier to lookup if you want the corresponding character later).
– These notes reflect what I understood from the class. I share them to incentivize people to watch the video and do not in any way constitute a replacement for it. When you watch the video, you will definitely pick up things I didn’t.

Acronyms used in the notes:
– LF = Left foot
– RF = Right foot
– LN = Left Knee
– RN = Right Knee
– LL = Left Leg
– RL = Right Leg
– LK = Left KUA4
– RK = Right KUA4
– LH = Left Hand
– RH = Right Hand
– LE = Left Elbow
– RE = Right Elbow
– LS = Left Shoulder
– RS = Right Shoulder
– LA = Left Arm
– RA = Right Arm
– CL = Chest centre line
– TH = Top of the head
– PC = Positive circle
– NC = Negative circle
– CB – Shovel Out / Shovel Step (CHAN3 BU4)
– XMB – Small horse stance (XIAO3 MA3 BU4)
– ZMB – Left horse stance (ZUO3 MA3 BU4)
– YMB – Right horse stance (YOU4 MA3 BU4)

DENG4 – Arch underneath your crotch – word for bench.

1. Theory:
.. 1. Movement: Walk obliquely and twist step (LXAB)
……1. After initial closing, kick by stretching the leg
……2. Land foot
……3. Make a turn after establishing a rod between the top of the head and the foot
…….. 1. Don’t bend down, keep the rod
…….. 2. elbow makes contact with the opponent, so it needs to be connected to the center (not a separate movement)
…………- The arm has no movement, as if it was tied to the body, glued in position, locked as a triangle, and so you can use it
……….1. Focus on maintaining the axis
……….2. The bottom needs to split both KUA4s
………… – looks as if the LN folds into the RN are folding onto each other
………… – But both KUAs also need to be open as in previous classes (knee up/knee )
………… – The space between the legs needs to have PENG2 and retain a U-shaped form.
………….. – I think the structure of the legs looks like a woman character in Chinese
……….3. Change into 45 degrees to Southwest, the LL is parallel to RF
………… – Do LE-in as you fold into it
………… – Fold by having the LH under the RE
……….4. Hold on to the axis between LL and TH and extend the RL out without shifting weight
………… – extend by putting the heel down with the toes
……….5. Shift the weight
……….6. Double squeeze
………… – Push both hands down in NC
………… – Keep hands in front, don’t pass back (see video)
……….7…RE comes up in an NC, don’t move the hand
……….8…Open the RK, pivoting on the RF heel
…………..- again a twist open,
…………..- hold everything to the back, don’t move the arm
…………..- stretch the LK open
……….9…LE-in makes hand come close to face
……….10. LL extends without moving the rest of the body
……….11. Fetch Water
…………..- Don’t move the hands
…………..- Stretch
…………..- Push the front, RK into the line of the hands
……….12. Keep the hands in place as they go underneath a dot you place in space (could be at the knee, hip or ribcage, the more advanced, the lower you go)
…………..- NUGGET:
…………….- If you’ve learned the form already and are improving it, the hand should be moved by other body parts, not the hands themselves.
…………….- Rubber hand has no slack upon opening the DENG4
…………….- Keep the shape between the hands (type 3 of no movement, SEE THEORY ON 2022-01-03) through the Pass the whole stick through the knee is
…………….- Motion is like shoveling snow/sand/dirt/etc
………………- Hold the handle of the shovel – it does not change its shape/length
………………- Throw the snow/sand/dirt out
…………….- Train with a rubber band, towel, or something soft and do the movement without letting the tension in the implement go away
…………….- Have to go down if it goes in the knee
…………….- Beginner could be at the lower ribcage level (don’t need to go so low, need to make the adjustment to go underneath the restriction)
…………….- Hands need to go underneath the ribcage plane, don’t push forward
2. Student movement corrections
.. 1. Movement count 1 (kick)
……- Need to extend the back of the LL
……- Hinge movement from knee until it becomes fully stretched
……- Kick all the way
.. 2. Movement count 3 (turn)
……- The direction of the LH does not change, it holds the same position, the stretched hands point to the same location
……- No gap between the torso and the arm, the torso needs to touch the arm
.. 3. Movement count X (rotation to go into fetch water):
……- Rotate in the same spot
……..- GOLDEN NUGGET: When turning and stretching, don’t leave the back foot behind, it needs to be pulled in, dragged in from the floor without an outside sweep
……….- you close onto yourself like when you speed up by conservation of momentum
……….- the back foot is passive, the DENG4 pulls the foot in, no active knee movement, it’s very lazy
……….- no movement at all in the back, let it come into the body
……….- Softly moving, leg is like a flexible fishing line, a rope, not like a rigid stick. Foot is like a sand bag, so you’re wrapping around it
……- Don’t move LF very far out
……- Cave in chest, don’t let it protrude out
……- Keep a clear heart:
……..- Wait until the end of LK rotation is done to then bring the foot
……..- Don’t move the whole body
……- Really stretch the KUA4 when opening
……..- needs to feel a little exercise on it (which is a little bit uncomfortable but not unbearable)
……- Stretching KUA “Open the door, the door needs to be open enough for you to pass through it”
.. 4. Movement count 13 (Fetch water):
……- Don’t let the front knee move while doing fetch water.
.. 5. Movement count 14:
……- Don’t allow the collapse of the front side, in particular the LN doesn’t move, and the LF ankle is locked/stretched (calf lengthens)
……- Tilt “the stick” with KUA movement, like people swinging a guitar in a rock concert
……- Don’t stick the bum out when going underneath
……- LK, LN, and the LF don’t move, can rotate, but needs to stay put in the same place and can’t be pushed forward
……..- Need to slide underneath the rod, not to push it forward
……..- Ray’s comment: maybe have someone hold an actual bar to go underneath
.. 6. Question from Brush Knee:
……- Lock the top and only move the feet (count 3 then 4)
……- Press LS down, squeezing the space between LH and LK
……- Lock both knees in position and only move from LK-RK axis with DANTIEN
……- Waist is like a board that doesn’t move
……- “Top board rotates against the bottom board”
3. Personal Reflections
.. 1. Kelvin mentioned “Keeping a clear heart”, which I understood as a requirement for the proper execution of an individual step
……- Clean, well-defined movement
……- Only intentional movements
……..- Completely finish the intended movement before going to another one
