    Pyung-Ahn Chodan Applications

    Hi Folks,

    I did'int know if I should post this here or in a new thread in the main section?

    I've been a busy chappie, and have put together the 6 applicaitons we drill from this pattern. Which is the first form for adults in JSMDK.

    [ame=""]Pyung-Ahn Chodan Applications - YouTube[/ame]

    Karate systems call this form Heian Shodan or Pinan Nidan. TKD guys will see bits of Chon-ji Tul and Dan Gun. As well as other patterns.

    Hope you enjoy!

    Hey all, thought i would post this to see what you think.

    I know i shouldnt really comment as i only got my green belt yesterday, but i started learning Won Hyo (sp?) a while ago.

    I just had some quieries as i want to get this good,

    1) you know when you do the twin rising block isnt the top arm/hand supposed to be above your head not covering your forehead? Thats the way we were taught.

    2) Arent the two front kicks supposed to be middle section, not high, they looked to be high to me.

    I know i shouldnt moan as he is a black belt, but just wondering as im aiming for a A pass in december and want it to be perfect!

    Thanks all. x

    Hey mate. :)

    What style of Taekwon-do are you doing? I can recommend a good video here. He is, I think the fourth best at ITF patterns in the world. I can't quite remember but within the top ten anyway;

    Hope this helps.

    ok it looks like some of this persons movements are taken from an older source than current itf pactice?

    i say this because he uses his two hands at the side as a ready position for the twin forearm block. this is from early karate styles.

    if you don't see this as how it's done in your dojang then don't use it as reference! the link that Hapuka gave you is fine for you if you are training with an itf group?

    this one is also handy [ame=""]Won Hyo - YouTube[/ame]

    Blimey a simple question with a less than simple answer.

    The TAGB are ITF style but we have not been part of the ITF since 1983, lots of people will tell you that we’re old fashioned and haven’t improved our art – this is of course rubbish, we have progressed but in a different way to the ITF.

    The TAGB use hip-twist, along with a natural up and down motion known as knee-spring to add body weight (mass – one of the 6 elements of the theory of power) to our techniques.
    Despite Gen. Choi’s early claims this is not unique to TKD and is found in different forms of MAs, boxing, and most sports where power is used (tennis, golf, etc).

    Despite still stating:
    “No doubt the maximum body weight is applied with the motion by turning the hip. The large abdominal muscles are twisted to provide additional body momentum. Thus the hip rotates in the same direction as that of the attacking or blocking tool as in figure F. Another way of increasing body weight is the slightly raising the hip at the beginning of the motion and lowering the hip at the moment of impact to drop the body weight into the motion as in figure G.” (Choi, TaeKwon-Do, 1993)

    Gen. Choi later instructed the body shouldn’t move with twist and the ‘slight’ rise and fall became an exaggerated drop-rise-drop know as ‘sine-wave’. There are many different ideas on why he changed, having seen a lot of both I’m pleased to be with the TAGB hip-twist crowd.

    Circular block is a complex technique which, when performed properly has 2 hip-twists and a knee spring.

    Does that help or just muddies the waters? :confused:
