Side Fall (from squatting position)
Now practice the same rocking technique by falling to the side from a squatting position. Begin from a deep squatting position with the arms in a guarding position, then:
- Cross the arms crossed at the chest with tight fists with the right arm on top.
- Extend the right leg and roll and drop to the right side while slapping the right arm and leg into the final side fall position with a kiai.
- Rise back to the squatting position and repeat the fall to the other side.
- Repeat the falls on each side until the movements become smooth and powerful.
