Modified Footwork in Section 2 of the Sun-Style 41 Forms Sequence

Orient yourself to Relative-North and begin the sequence.

The altered steps are as follows:

  • Play the Lute, with an angled Follow-Step.
  • Cross-Step, to cover 90 degrees.
  • Circle-Step, to cover 90 degrees.
  • Parry and Punch, with realigned Follow-Step.

Any of the step can be altered to achieve different amounts of circling and destination. The sequence needn’t have prescribed Direction, it is simply a sequence.

Honoring the sequence while disregarding the “normal” directions of the forms allows for more exploration of Rhythm and Space without needing to memorize new sequences.
