I know this has probably been done to death, but searching through the TKD posts, I couldn't find it. If i just missed it, I apologize profusely, and I hope that a moderator will trash this thread in it's infancy! As some background, my TKD-ish school is influenced by several non-tkd things, and is also theoretically built upon TKD that hadn't been "de-Japanized". For whatever that's worth. We do the following traditional forms; Basic 1, 2, and 3 (Taikyoku/Kicho Hyung) Basic 1, 2, and 3 with added front, side, and round kicks, respectively. Pinan/Pyong Ahn 1-5 (we pronounce it so very well, as "Pion.") Also, a version of Pinan 1 with a variety of added kicks. Naihanchi 1-3 (We say Naiji, again, great pronunciation) Bassai Sho and Dai Sanchin Tensho Shushi No Kon Sho (mispronounced as, Shoshinakon) Tsuken Shitahaku no Sai (We leave out the "no") Also, we have a variety of school-specific empty hand and weapons forms created by the original instructor and co, and a couple of optional forms based on Kung-Fu forms, and some other forms such as jion are practiced by a few, but not standard. I know we're pretty different from a lot of TKD, a lot karate-er, and we move more kung-fu-ier but I was wondering how much relevance this traditional Kata bears to other Martial Talk TKD-ers.
