    Well, there is when they reach the western world...

    It's too bad that doing patterns isn't something that most international federation of whatever insist upon... if they didn't - instructors might have to get their young students to... oh I dunno actually contact spar for a while, or even funnier get them to practice the basics like punching and kicking PROPERLY.... cue lots of haymakers and wobbly toe punts.

    After all gotta make the punters think they're getting the RL traditional ****, especially as little Jimmy's mom thinks he looks so nice in that little white Gi/Dobok/over=priced pajama set...

    I quite like the medatational state you can achieve by going through the same dammed sets almost every class...

    No wait......... this is a different sensation

    yep, it's boredom... my mistake.
    Dude, dude. I like that ****. That was brilliant.

    Same thing, different words. Dunno why.

    Hyung means "pattern" though, I think. What's the literal tranlsation of Poomsae?

    IIRC Pumsae is the name of the forms in TKD,

    Hyung is the pronounciation of the Kanji.


    I, however, am no expert on TKD as I don't practice it.

    YMMV.

    What? Really? You guys don't like forms around here?
    Actually I like forms, but as a memory thing. As for training or defense, they're useless.

    That's not really true, there's tons of 'em without forms, but for some reason the ones with forms tend to become unreasonably popular.
