(I) Hand Movements
1. Fist: The fingers are doubled into the palm and the thumb doubled inward across the forefinger and the middle finger.
2. Palm: The fingers are slightly bent and apart, the palm slightly cupped, and the radial between the thumb and forefinger curved.
3. Hook: The tips of the fingers are held together, wrist bent. All hand movements must be kept natural, avoiding stiffness. The fist must not be clenched too tightly, the fingers not too stiff or bent too softly, and the wrist should be relaxed.
