    Ever wanted to know about those releases??? The answers are all in my head.

    Particularly for the higher grade patterns!

    Ah, I can use this right about now.
    I am presently learning Yoo Sin and Se Jong....

    and waiting to receive a cdrom set that has all of the Chang Hon forms. I find following from a book way too confusing!
    Unfortunately it is imp[ossible to spend much time on forms in class so it is necessary to practice ... practice... and practice at home!

    Go to and go to the link "patterns" it has all of the forms that the ITU does. Some of the names are spelled different but it will help a lot. trust me!

    Oh I am very familiar with the pattern mpg's on the ITU site ... they've helped me alot!
    The cdrom set that I plan on acquiring is here at ... I just think it would make a nice addition to my "library".

    I've actualy got a question about Gae-baek...

    Man it's going to be a discussion....

    After the dodging turning kick do yuo guys go foot to foot spot turning or place the foot down and center line turn??

    Moves 33 & 34 of Gae-Baek

    33. Move the left foot to A about half a shoulder width while executing a middle turning kick to C with the right foot.

    34. Lower the right foot to C, and then turn counter-clockwise to form a left walking stance toward D, pivoting with the right foot while executing a high vertical punch to D with a twin fist.

    OK ... I see at which part in Ge Baek you are referring to (now that everyone is watching me do this form from my cubicle window here in my office at work....:D ) I need to run through the whole form so as I could try an answer this for you!

    This is how I was taught....After the kick, both feet land and pivot turn 180 deg. with the twin fist punch... I've see it done both ways actually ....

    This is the point.

    For me there are some issues with how you do this in a practical sense but I want to hear peoples variations opinion first!

    I am noticing with the advanced black belt forms there seems to be alot of bringing left foot to right and visa versa .... which is really where I am finding my problems.

    I am either bringing in the wrong foot or stepping out with the wrong foot.... ARGHHHH!!!
