Basic Arm Motions

In doing all arm motions you should always remeber a few things:

1) All moves should be preformed sharp. Imagine hitting a brick wall that is behind you.

2) Wrists should not be cocked, but in a straight line with your arms. Thumbs should be on the outside of your fists, with your pinky fingers in back.

3) Your arms should not be way behind you. You should be able to just barely see them out of the corner of your eyes when looking straight ahead.

4) Shoulders should be relaxed for every motion, not up at your ears.

 

Ready Position
Hands behind back, feet shoulder width apart.

Lunge
Just look at the legs and body position. Left leg is bent at a 90 degree angle. The right leg is completely straight. Body and right knee are facing forward.

High V
Arms are at a 45 degree angle to the body. Pinky fingers are to the back.

Low V
Same as a High V, but arms are down.

T
Arms are at a 90 degree angle to the body. Pinky fingers are to the back.

Broken T
Same as a T, but arms are bent. Do not bring it forward. Pinky fingers are to the front.

Touch Down
Arms are straight up, in-line with the body. Bring arms to ears, not ears to arms. Pinky fingers are to the front.

Low Touch Down
Arms are straight down, in-line with the body. Arms should be tight to the body and slightly forward. Pinky fingers are to the back.

Daggers
Arms are bent, hugging the body. Pinky fingers are to the front.

Right L
Right arm is in a T and left arm is in a Touch Down. Left L would be the opposite of this.

Right Punch
Right arm is in a Touch Down and left arm is on hips. Left Punch would be the opposite of this.

 

Left Diagonal
Left arm is in a High V and right arm is in a Low V. Right Diagonal would be the opposite of this.
