These directions are to aid students who wish to practice at home. This second group of exercises using a bamboo or light wooden stick consist of 17 movements which can be performed seated, stationary standing or with footsteps. The instructions for performing the exercises, along with example videos, can be found from the links to each of the 17 exercises above.

The exercises need not be performed in exactly the order above, though this is done in class for convenience and to help the students remember the movements. Neither is it necessary to perform every one of these postures every day.
