Lǒu xī ǎo bù (Brush Knee and Twist Step) 摟膝拗步

“While your weight is on your right foot center from the last form [White Crane Spreads its Wing] turn your body to the right. Let your right arm fall down to your right side.”

I’ve often heard this movement described as letting your right arm fall down like that of leaves falling from a tree. The movement should be easy and natural. What a perfect time of the year to observe that.
