Grasp Sparrow’s Tail is completed with Push.

1. Pushing off the right foot, shift the weight almost completely onto the left leg. Keep the right knee slightly bent. At same time “wash left hand over right” palms face down.

2. Draw the elbows down and back with the backward pull of the waist and the press back of the right foot. Almost all weigh pours back into left leg with elbows relaxed and finger tips tipping slightly upward.

3. Forward push begins with push from the left foot, pressing the hips forward. Arm and hands remain in the same position. Do not extend the arms forward. Knee does not extend beyond the toe, keep spine vertical and shoulders relaxed.

Movement should feel like an ocean wave.
