Implicit Movement Commands
Some Movement Commands are implicit, meaning that if no body part is specified, it means move your entire body. Implicit Movement Commands usually include directions such as ‘move to your left’, or ‘step forward’. They are also in relation to the direction that you are supposed to be looking in.
We can’t help but to keep looking at the display screen, so when you hear take a step forward and you’re in the middle of a kung fu form, then think about ‘forward’ in relation to where you are in that taolu form.
