WAN-JUN-HYUNG

Introduction

This form is typically one of the forms learned at Green Belt level when learning one of the various forms of  Ta Kwon Do (Korean Karate).  It is used by both schools teaching traditional Ta Kwon Do and Sport Karate.  I've found that having it written out helps a lot.  I have purchased forms books and found the written out form helps me learn it.  An instructor can help you a lot when it comes to the nuances, however, you need to be able to go all the way through the kata so the instructor can see what your doing wrong.

Because of the various affiliations, there may be some differences between what I have posted and what the instructor or school expects from the student.  For instance, the traditional karate form as taught in Korea, typically has little allowance for toes bent inward or outward.  Parallel mean parallel.  

Traditional Karate can be hard on your knuckles.  I have a friend who broke his several times on purpose while learning in Korea and he can't use his hand for anything, except maybe breaking boards, bottles and brick.

Meaning

This form. WAN-JUN-HYUNG  in Korean means Pursuit of Excellence.

Movements

There are 40 movements starting in the Chunbi Stance

Tips

When being judged, the instructor will look for the following:

  1. Your confidence.  Find out the protocal for introducing your self and show your confidence by stating your name (and also typically your school/location) loudly and with authority.
  2. Proper Yells.   Some schools have student yell while executing every strike, while others only do it on particular strikes (i.e. the first strike after a change in direction).  Find out what your instructor expects and when yelling, yell loudly.  It helps with breathing and the arenalin will allow you to hit harder.
  3. Execute you punches and kicks like you are actually striking someone (or something).   The instructor will be looking for solid definate movements.
  4. Finish strongly.  Execute your last movement like you mean it.
  5. Above all, don't fidgit or clown around.  Ta Kwon Do is fun, however, it is also suppose to help instill discipline. While at a tournament or test, it is no time to be distracted or goof off.  The instructors/judges are in most cases, looking at your attitude more than the form.
