    Tai Chi: Fist Under Elbow - part of the women's fitness video series by GeoBeats.

    Hello, my name is Tiffany Chen, I am from William C.C. Chen's Tai Chi Chuan. I am going to do Fist Under Elbow with you.

    So start by standing in a diagonal angle in the room you are in. Left palm up, right arm out to the side, left leg in front, right leg behind. About 80-20 weight distribution with 80 in left leg, 20 in the right leg. I want you to shift the weight back but moving away from the left palm. And now using the right leg to move the left leg out to the side, setting it down.

    Shift the weight into the left leg and just take a gentle step up with the right leg so the heel of the left foot lines up with the arch of the right foot. Shift the weight into the right leg, turn, and now as you drop the left arm behind you step forward on the heel of the right foot. As you bring the left arm up, the right hand drops underneath in a fist. And this completes the segment.
