I've been thinking about the Ch'ang Hon (ITF) patterns and wondering if we used them as a foundation or template for taekwondo how would it break down... Looking at the first 9 patterns (Chon-ji to Choong Moo) there are 258 moves in total. Of that 27 moves are kicks (10.4%), 4 (1.55%) are elbows and 2 (0.78%) are knees. That means the TKD patterns are just over 87.2% hand techniques (including punches, strikes, blocks, grip releases, etc). Which is not quite the kick heavy art modern practice and sparring trends would have us believe.
