View Full Version : Forms
I was wondering if anybody knew of a website that showed tsd white belt forms. My daughter was going to test this weekend and I wanted a printable version so I can help her with it she goes to a cs kim school. I thought her sparring form was her white belt form until today, she's only 5 and excited to get promoted to yellow belt, she been in there since november but I didn't realize they only did forms on certain days, days I was told wasn't necessary for her to be there. This stuff is confusing for me I could only imagine what she thinks. Any info would be nice. Thanks :confused:
While there's a couple guides out there that we can give you, Mr. Smith, you're much better off giving your instructor a call, and explaining the problem. You should be able to set up a private lesson fairly easily if it's needed, or any of a number of other solutions. It's -extremely- difficult to learn hyung (form) from a book or website, especially for a child so young.
If you're dead set on this, though, the traditional forms for the white belt are Gicho Hyung Il Bu and Gicho Hyung E Bu, and there are a lot of easy to find but not really well done references you can get off Google.
Christopher has given excellent advice.

Why were you told it wasn't necessary to be in attendance on certain days?
Wishing your daughter much success on her upcoming promotion. :)
I'm being lazy so im just going to paste my previous reply here as well..
You have to be careful learning TSD or any other martial art from a video because there could be small or large variation in techniques. Each organization could have a certain way to do things. In our school we have 3 different sets of techniques that we use for one steps, from different influences and teachings we have gotten over the years. A hyung (form) might have a low defense in one organization but another might have a high defense or a middle block. Even though not majorly hard to correct there still is a difference.
Tang Soo and Good training
i have to agree with mike, ive been training for about a year now and i looked at some videos online, just to see what it was like, and there were some definate differences, mostly small, but noticable. the first thing you have to know is what that instructor teaches otherwise theres going to be even more confusion in the future.
GM C.S. Kim is head of the International Tang Soo Do Federation. I don't know much about them as they are not Moo Duk Kwan. This may not mean much to you but basically there are a lot of independant federations and organisations out there that can trace thier lineage back to the Moo Duk Kwan from Korea. I don't think GM Kim came from the MDK so I don't know what your basic forms will be.
Your best bet is going to be your daughter's instructor.
actually i believe they did originate in MDK, not sure so dont quote me on that haha
GM C.S. Kim's old master was GM Song Ki Kim. GM S.K. Kim is head of the World TSD Union these days. His headquarters are at the Soung Tan Moo Duk Kwan.
Any links to GM Hwang Kee's TSD MDK must have ended a long time ago as GM S.K. Kim opened his Kwan in 1958.
I might be wrong, but i was always told that G.M. C.S.Kim WAS mdk, and that's why we're under the moo duk kwan lineage... but like i said, i just might be Totaly wrong...

Asain World of Martial Arts or Turtle Press should have what you are looking for. Both have websites.
