Very little seems to get mentioned on this boardabout the Kukkiwon yudanja poomsae. So, I thought I'd start a thread. I enjoy them a great & find most of them to be challenging, thought-provoking & a great work out as well. The upper rank poomsae (like Cheon Kwon & Han Soo, for example) can show the strength & power of TKD when done by one who can do them well. I wonder why they were designed with such difficult techniques (Cheon Kwon's jump spinning crescent kick. Il Yeo's two jump side kicks) as the highest levels. Since these poomsae were designed for practioners in their 40's on up, it would seem counter-intuitive. One would think that poomsae designed for older practioners would be a bit less physically demanding. I'd likeyour thoughts on that, but also, what do you like about these yudanja poomsae? Which is you favorite, & why?
