Beginning in the ATTENTION POSITION (Fig. 1)

Move the LEFT foot directly to the left to a distance approximately twice the width of the shoulders (Fig. 2), both feet flat on the floor, toes of both feet pointing straight ahead – knees bent and bowed outward in opposite directions – back straight – shoulders square to the front – eyes looking straight ahead.

          NOTE 1: 50% of your weight on each foot.
          NOTE 2: Maintain a relatively low stance posture.

Both hands (Fig. 3), fists clenched at your hips, palms up – elbows pointing straight backward.
