As the form is practiced pay attention to the roundness at the joints. In performance of and holding of peng "there are no dead angles".  The formation of an angle indicates a loss of peng, particularly at the elbow but also at the wrist or the knee or shoulder also. When the practice of the form includes an angle there is meaning to the angle. For instance when punching forward with the right fist the left elbow quickly moves backward in a strike. AS the student moves from punching down to the ground into the double scissor kick again there is an intentional angle made with the elbow in an elbow strike as the body moves 180 degrees from punching down to the double scissor kick.
