Ward Off Right
Single Whip

All of these postures are familiar now and the only new bit is how to get into Ward Off Right from Punch Downwards. It’s one of those important linking moves. And it’s a move that I really enjoy because of the wave like motion and the feeling of how this creates a circle with your right arm and hand.

I think that’s the key part – keep it flowing and wavelike. Have the sense of ‘yielding’ as you come back and turn the left foot to the NE diagonal; let the forward momentum bounce back out of your rear, right foot as you come forward with the ward off. There should be no gap between moving back and coming forwards; just like when you throw a stone up in the air – there’s no gap between moving up and coming down, just pure change.
