Forms

       Chul Gi I

Tae Kwon Do forms are stylized sequences of attacks and blocks in multiple directions, for the purpose of developing complete control of the body. There are certain forms designated for each belt level, each belt level has one or two forms. The difficulty of these forms have been graded requiring greater skills with each successive form,  which helps students get acquainted with the techniques that are expected at each belt level.

Five separate disciplines are required from the student while doing forms. The student must learn the form so that all the motions are done correctly with Control. Second, the movements must be Fast. Doing a form with Speed does not mean rushing thru the entire form. Each individual move must be executed with Speed. Third, the movements must be Strong. Fourth, each movement must be Focused. Finally, the student must have proper Balance at all times.

As in Basics, mastering Forms is very difficult, because you can always execute moves faster, with more power, better focus, better balance, and with more control. One must always strive to go beyond their own limitations.

Examinations at each belt level are given at the discretion of the instructor when he feels that the student has acquired the proficiency in Tae Kwon Do required at his belt level. The student is then tested by Grandmaster Son at headquarters', and if judged satisfactory, is awarded the next rank. The rank system in this style of Tae Kwon Do is white, yellow, green, purple, brown, black. A student attending classes on a regular basis should be eligible for Black Belt testing in approximately 2-1/2 to 3 years.
