Tai Chi / George Picard / Video Library > Pluck and Release Power Video Length: 2min. 6sec.
Opening movements: Relax. Stand upright with feet together, arms hanging naturally and eyes looking straight ahead. Salute by bringing together the right hand in a fist and the left hand with the palm open, at chest height. Bring your hands back down. Step out to the left, so that your feet are shoulder-width apart. Unlock and slightly bend the knees. Step further out to the left into a side bow stance. Bring your left arm out to the left. Bring the right arm across to rest on the left wrist. Then shift your weight to the right forming a semi-horse stance, opening the arms so they are extended on both sides. Cross your hands above your head, then pull your arms down and around in a circular motion, bringing the hands together in front of your body, the right hand in a fist and the left hand with palm open. Shift your weight to the left, then back to the right, circling with both arms and bringing them around to the front of your body. Shift your weight back to the left; then release power, punching with the right hand and pulling back the left palm to rest against the ribs. Finishing movements: Step out to the left with the left leg, so that feet are shoulder-width apart. Raise up both arms, then press your hands down in front of your body. Bring your arms to the sides.
