GATHERING CLOUDS (FRONT- Right step through punch)

BASE TECHNIQUE

With your left foot, step toward 10:30 and form a modified left neutral bow stance as you deliver a left inward parry simultaneous with a right inward horizontal vertical middle-knuckle fist rake through the opponent’s right ribcage. Immediately reverse the motion of your right arm and deliver a right outward horizontal handsword strike to his right lower ribcage or kidney. Your left hand checks his right arm.
  2. With your right foot, step forward and form a right neutral bow stance toward 1:30 to buckle the inside of his right knee. Simultaneously deliver a right inward horizontal elbow strike to the front of his right lower ribcage as you settle into your stance. Your left hand acts as a bracing angle check against his right elbow.
