If you have them at what ranks do you learn chil sung il ro through chil sung chil ro? what ranks do you learn yuk ro cho dan through yuk ro yuk dan? and how do you divide up the masters forms sei sun, wang shu, jion, oh sip sa bo, so rim jang kwon, and the sword form(jang gum hung) up amoung the masters ranks?
Tang Soo!

John, not sure I've seen "Sa Bang Kwan". Do you have a video or other reference to it I can see?

Thanks,
Mac

Interesting, thanks for posting. I don't know the other form, but I agree with your comments that she mixed up Lo-hi/Ro-hi and the other forms videos.

Last year, my teacher decided which forms we were to teach at what grade through 6th dan. My teacher and I both train in many more forms, but these are the ones he wants taught to all general students of our style:

White & Yellow Belt: Kicho 1-3
Green Belt: Pyung Ahn 1-2
Blue Belt: Pyung Ahn 3-4
Red Belt: Pyung Ahn 5, Bassai Dae & So
Cho Dan: Naihanchi 1, Gekisai 1
Ee Dan: Naihanchi 2, Gekisai 2
Sam Dan: Naihanchi 3, Ship Soo
Sa Dan: Chinto, Kong Sang Kun Dae
Oh Dan: Kong Sang Kun So, Sa Bang Kong Sang Kun
Yuk Dan: Rohai Cho Dan & Ee Dan

What were the thoughts behind keeping both Kong Sang Koon and Sa Bang Kong Sang Koon. I love both forms, but see high amounts of overlap...

Thanks for sharing!

In a former life, I performed Gekisai - isn't that a Goju Ryu form? I don't actually remember it, but from what I do remember I did like that form and may have even done it with sai.

You are correct re: Gekisai. Muwubu has an intersting lineage :)

Our Tang Soo Do has influence from not only our main Moo Duk Kwan roots, but also through my teachers uncle Dr. Yun Kwai Byeong of Jidokwan, of which I also hold rank in. Dr. Yun learned from both Toyama Kanken, where he held the 4th Dan with Shihan license in Shudokan, and I'm not sure how far along, but learned from Mabuni Kenwa as well. He dedicated a book he wrote to both his teachers. Because of this additional source, my teacher, as well as myself, practice the whole range of kata/hyung from not only Tang Soo Do, but from Dr. Yun's lineage as well. The final product is the list you see here, as my teacher likes to teach simpler hyung, but more in depth than what is taught in Tang Soo Do normally today. However, his style is the Most influenced by his primary teacher, the late GM Oh Sae Joon.

WTSDA (GM J C Shin) syllabus, open hand forms only, each rank is inclusive of all lower ranks. Higher dan ranks also include a detailed knowledge of a specific lower form. There are obviously other requirements, including basics, written test, original written work, weapons, etc, depending on the rank testing. The three sae kye hyung are basic forms, original to WTSDA, but very similar to beginner forms taught in most styles.
10th gup - white belt beginner
9th gup - sae kye hyung 1
8th gup - sae kye hyung 2
7th gup - sae kye hyung 3
6th gup - pyung ahn cho dan
5th gup - pyung ahn e dan
4th gup - pyung ahn sam dan
3rd gup - pyung ahn sah dan
2nd gup - pyung ahn o dan
1st gup - bassai
Cho Dan Bo (blue belt) - Naihanchi (1st)
1st Dan - Sip soo
2nd Dan - Naihanchi e dan
3rd Dan - Naihanchi sam dan, Jin do
4th Dan - Rohai, Kong sang koon
5th Dan - Wang Shu, Shi Shan, Ji Pangyi
6th Dan - Jion
7th Dan - Oh sip sah bo

I just knew someone would ask that. I haven't a clue. It's in the WTSDA handbook as part of the syllabus, but GM Shin's textbooks on forms only go to 3rd dan forms (thus far). I Googled it and didn't have much success. Honestly, I don't think I have ever even heard the name mentioned before I saw it when I looked yesterday.

Most of the forms from World Tang Soo Do are the traditional, found all over. The names are also fairly common, and even if you didn't recognize the name, watching the form, you would immediately realize which form was being performed. (you know, Wang Shu = Empi, Shi Shan = Hangetsu, etc). This one even sounds different, more Korean. I don't know it, at least without seeing it. I assume that under another name it would be something we might know, given our respective travels.

I'll email around and see if one of the old-time TSD guys can describe it to me.
