sole. While jumping, the weight of the body is balanced on the toes of both the
feet and then the right foot is made to strike the ground with its flat sole ,while
the left foot is still in the same position, i.e., balanced on the toes. The
same is repeated starting with the left foot. The Sollukaṭṭu remains the same for each variety of the aḍavu. Tripatāka mudra are used for this aḍavu.
