Sae Kye Hyung Il Bu in a “Box”

When you are limited on space or just looking for a way to keep your students thinking, have them perform their Hyung/Tul/Kata/Form/Pattern in a “box.” Make sure you tell them to emphasize perfect stances, proper loads and balance points. It can be quite fun. Here are a few of my students making an attempt at the World Tang Soo Do Association’s first form, Sae Kye Hyung Il Bu. I think they did a fantastic job.
