Forms practice (Hyung)

Combines basic hand and kicking techniques, at the lower level, in a pattern of "connected moves." This provides the foundation of a student’s training: timing, balance, speed, coordination, and control, all of which are invaluable to the martial artist. The practiced student trains to move as elegantly and effortlessly as flowing water. Advanced level forms introduce Animal-Style Techniques based on the movements and/or characteristics of certain "martial" animals.

The five principles of forms are:

  1. Mind clear
  2. Eyes bright
  3. Hand fast
  4. Feet slow and deliberate
  5. Stance low
