Arching as extension

At a higher level, stretching moves are changed to arching moves. Arching is really a way of extension without stopping the energy flow.Arching is more stable than stretching. However, arching creates less distance than stretching.

Some examples:
  1. When moving the arm back towards your body, don't allow your front knee to move backwards. This way, you can extend your foot hand arching length.
  2. When pushing the front arm out,  don't allow your rear knee to move forward. This will make your rear foot-front arm stretch longer.
