0:18 Together, I go through all the commonly used Chinese strokes to write the basic radical 木。

Some Basics Chinese Strokes : piě nà zhé gōu tí
Before you start to watch this video, here are the rules of how we write each of the basic strokes:
héng – a horizontal line. You put the pen down on the paper, start from the left side, and pull the pen, and once you get the end of the stroke you pick it up. When you write this horizontal line, please apply the pressure all the way through the stroke. Then, the stroke looks evenly thick at both ends.
shù – a vertical line. Like writing heng, you apply the pressure all the way through the stroke from top to the bottom.
zhé—a sharp turn. It looks like the corners of a box. You usually use it to combine a horizontal and vertical stroke.
piě—a sloping line. You apply pressure at the beginning and pull the pen while decreasing the pressure towards the end of the stroke. So you can see the stroke is thick at the beginning and and thin at the end. The stroke can have many different variations. It can be very short. It can also be very long, starting almost vertically and finishing diagonally, with a sharpened tip at the end.
nà—a long slant line, starting top left and finishes at the bottom right. Note that there should be a long extended, wide, and slightly thick shape at end of the stroke towards the bottom right.
gōu – a small hook. You do a little flick of the pen at the end of heng, shu, or pie, but make sure you do it in the right direction
diǎn – a dot starting top left and finishing at the bottom right.
*tí—a short diagonal line. You put the pen down at the beginning and write it from the bottom upwards. As you pull it from bottom left to top right. You raise the pen and release it at the end. As you finish it, you can see a sharpened edge at the end.
*wān – a curve bend towards certain directions.
