SONG 17It is not a skill to use the palm in only one way,At least be proficient in four ways.One crossing and one straight form triangle hands,
It’s like embracing a person on my bosom.
SONG 18Attack a tall person low and short person high,If angling the body and changing steps oen can stay calm.Waist force is required in oblique turning and reverse turning,Firm force is like steel when rotation reaches its utmost.SONG 19It is said that the palm method wins from its firmness,Master Guo used to mention gentleness is hidden inside.
It’s secret has been known by some people,
Combination of firmness and gentleness is its advantage.SONG 20Firmness appears first with gentleness hidden inside,Gentleness comes first with firmness followed.When he moves his waist and hands by gentleness,I would suck in with the waist and move stable steps.SONG 21When in the extreme, the body must turn,Get myself free and move my shadow without leaving a trace.Deception is carried out in footwork,The waist must extend first in advance and retreat.SONG 22The spirit in turning the palm is transmitted from the neck bone,The hand moves before turning the neck.Extend the neck for releasing power and pull it down for changes,Like a spiritual dragon linking its head and tail together.SONG 23When striking the opponent with the hand the shoulder is its root,It is not possible to extend the tip if the arm movement is not from the shoulder.Advance the forward foot when the enemy wants to advance,It is futile to advance the back foot.SONG 24Strong force is released from tendons and bones,Firmness from the bones is channeled by the tendons.The big tendons of the heel connects with the spine and head,Extend the power by using the follow step.
