The Bow-and-Arrow step is one of the unique features of Wu-style Tai-chi. One leg is bent, the other is straight. Also, the heel of the forward leg is approximately in line with the toes of the back leg, hips' width apart.

Twist Right Step, Brush Right Knee

* Take first step toward Left

1) Twist Right Step—bring right foot forward

* Bring pelvis and body upright by pulling pelvis in (Fig.52)

Note: A sense of lifted spirit can be felt from left heel to top of head

At the same time:

* Bring right foot forward until it is even with left foot, with only the toes touching the ground

* Raise left hand until it is in front of neck, with wrist at shoulder level and palm facing Front

First follow these steps individually, then perform them simultaneously.
