 ARCH

When the spine is bent backwards, it is in an arch.  The arch is used in hundreds of skills, and must be as strong a position as its opposite, the Hollow.  Many skills involve an arch position in one phase or another.  Often, the arch should be felt in the upper back, as opposed to the lower back.
