The sign for "arrive" uses flat hands ("B"-hands).
The non-dominant hand is held out away from the body with the palm
angled in toward your chest and a bit upward. The dominant
hand starts near your body, palm back, and moves forward until it
slaps into the palm of the non-dominant hand.
Memory aid :The right hand arrives at the left hand.

Question: Is "ARRIVE" the same sign as "PROVE/proof/evidence?"
Answer: The two signs are somewhat similar but there are some
differences. ARRIVE is angled more upright, (mostly
palm-back). PROVE starts with the non-dominant hand generally
horizontal, and palm facing upward. Then the dominant hand smacks
down onto the non-dominant hand and bounces up an inch or two.
Visualize the non-dominant hand representing a table or similar
surface and the dominant hand representing a folder full of
documents that you throw down onto the table that prove your point.
