In my SC (Chinese wrestling) system, form is for
Form is not for training. When I get older, form can be used for health purpose.
Like I said, in your style it isn't. To make such a blatant statement that it isn't at all, is incorrect.
For TKD, improving your form is part of the training. You are not just learning a performance, or learning concepts. You are learning to exactly copy the form as it is meant to be passed down. I don't know if it was this thread or another (I think it was another), but @Dirty Dog was talking about how the forms have stayed the same since they were created in the late 60s or early 70s, and any deviation from them is incorrect (by Kukkiwon standards). Any differences in stance, such as a shorter or wider stance than prescribed, or doing a punch at a different height than prescribed, is incorrect. Copying your Master to exactness is part of your training. Just like scribes writing books back in the day, before the printing press.
