So in the ITF syallabus there up to and including 1st degree there are 12 forms. Alot of information if you had to only teach a handful of those forms aiming at application and the likes which would you choose?
my list would be
Dan Gun - got to get the basics in, and nice practice of knifehand
won hyo - more use of the knifehand,
Jhoon Gun - some nice application here, moving in to getting closer to the opponent
Po eun - really important information here for close in grappling and so on
when reading forums and seeing application practice, i almost always see the forms up to and including 1st degree demostrated and very rarely if ever see anything higher. there must be some application practice in the higher forms even though the General started to move away from his karate roots and making the forms more physically demanding and/or visually enjoyable. has anyone looked in to these?
