Cross Form / Thập Tự Quyền
In order to learn Cross form effectively, you need to learn by heart the basic 10 strategies.
Cross form is organized into 2 parts: Part I with odd strategies from 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. Part II with even strategies from 2, 4, 6, 8, 10.
The transition between strategies are making it hard for new students to remember. Thus pay attention to the transition. To help you memorize better, try to divide the form into blocks. Then practice each block until it become automatic.
A few points to remember: 1) Each move needs to be clear and concise. It’s better to move slow and concise than moving fast with cut corner. 2) Pay attention to eye contact, head, hand and leg movements. The body usually moves into 4 directions (look like cross) with center point. Start out at center point and end at the same center point.
