Hello Kelly Jo!
Thanks for this question...

Here are some ways to write blowing air in different directions...

The four with the little arrows can be written in both the IMWA and  
the ISWA. The ones that are only on one side of the mouth are only  
available in the new ISWA. But the ones with the arrows are the most  
accurate I think anyway...makes it really clear...and are what you  
want for blowing air in specific directions...

The new ones to the right...that are just on one side of the face  
actually mean something a little different...they mean that the air is  
coming out of one cheek or the other cheek only...

Val ;-)
