Yang Long Form (Week 3)

We actually did go further in the form this week, somewhat to my surprise. The sequence to the end of the first section is similar to CMC, but with several extra brush-knee-twist-steps, or brush-EAR-twist-steps in the long form. Instead of just going brush-knee, play-guitar, brush-knee, the long form goes: brush-knee, play-guitar, brush-knee, brush-knee-left, brush-knee, play-guitar, brush-knee, and THEN proceeds into step-up-parry-and-punch, and apparent-close. All done long-form style rather than CMC style, but I'm getting more used to that. And either I'm doing better on my steps, or having two other students didn't give Don as much time to complain about them.
