3 important things to know to find practical meaning in Poomsae

Here's a short video explaining and illustrating three important principles to get combative meaning in Poomsae. Of course this is a vast subject, but these three will get you started. The principles are: understand the pulling hand (you can  read up on dangkinun son on this blog, or see my mini lecture #2 for more information), "blocks" are not static "blocks" (again a quick search on this blog will give you page up and down with lots of information), and "there is only one opponent".

Any principles you would like to see covered in a similar format? Please comment or PM me if you do:-)

Mini lecture #2 Why do we pull our hand to our hip?[2018]

In this video you will get some of the reasons why we pull our hand to our hip in forms and basics, as well as why we chamber techniques, the role of blocks and much more. I again did this without any script, but I did a better job at editing this time (at least I think so) and I placed my camera so I did not have to hold it while filming so the presentation is way better than in the first lecture. I still have a far way to go both in editing skills and in presentation, but its a steep learning curve, and hopefully I will give an alternative to the text dominated content I have been providing so far.

What would YOU like to see in a future mini lecture? Please answer in a comment or PM :-)
