    Default Sine Wave (ITF TKD)

    All

    I need you guys to advise me what the Sine Wave is for.

    I have popped to my local ITF Dojang, got my ITF Dobok and raring to go, even though I got to put on a White belt again.

    I need to understand the SineWave, what's it for?

    What's the application of the technique, with the "up/Down" effect comes into play?

    Where did it originate from as I have researched some ITF schools don't teach the Sine Wave to their Forms (Poomsae)?

    Is it more Western Schools putting the Sine Wave in as opposed to Korean School etc/

    I'm also learning Koryo Poomsae (WTF) from a student of mine.

    I am Japanese/Korean Karate based as you already know and we tend to glide without a Sine Wave on the Forms I'm used to doing.

    Looking forward to your responses etc

    Thanks

    Professionals talk about tactics and concepts while amateurs talk about gear and equipment.

    Have you considered... asking somebody at the dojo?
