How to Perform Holding the Fruit Palm

The Monkey King is an important hero of Chinese Mythology, especially from the Buddhist tradition. The name of this palm is from Monkey stealing the Peach of Immortality from Heaven. Begin on the edge of the circle in Pushing Palm posture, then turn the palms upward by sinking the elbows down. It is important to make this movement from the elbows. If you make it from the shoulders, you will roll your shoulders forward.

As you lower your elbows and turn your palms upward, bring the hands together so they are touching below the pinkies; the pinkies are not touching each other.
