    That's true. I was talking about the Taegeuk forms, though. ;)

    One reason to teach a "right way" of doing things is so people don't have to choose type A or type B. In our school, our stuff looks different depending on the purpose (self defense, demonstration, sparring).

    I think (most) people are plenty smart enough to learn more than one way. I teach "this is how you do this for the Moo Duk Kwan, this is how you do it for the KKW, these are some variants that you might use in sparring or self defense..."123
