you may have snagged the wrong clip...that looks like a competition form complete with tango 2-stepping twists. I give it a 3.5/6.0

Another reason that I don't practice forms.

ok..I had a moment of frustration with this question, but I'm ok now.
I might have found another piece to the puzzle in regard to the mountain posture first mentioned.
Started with a hunch, after looking at the Shorin kata 'Chinto' (which I haven't learned yet). Chinto was renamed by funakoshi to 'Gankaku'. It contains a similar posture (including the half-mountain) except this kata also includes the turn described. find out some apps for this and it may give ideas.
I have a sneaking suspicion this will be a repetitive process when trying to determine the postures that seem to be thrown into the TKD kata...I'm pretty sure most of these will come from Shorin kata.
anyway, have a look for yourself:

let me know if you see anything familiar...

Kin,

Just as an aside, I am probably the least among you trying to find applications in all of this. I have never trained bunkai in my life, so this sort of feels like reinventing the wheel.

I have trained applications, which I can somewhat see in these kata, but have never derived them from the kata...so bear with me. Some comments I make might be obvious....or just plain stupid.

hey! I thought I had the market cornered on 'stupid comment production' !

actually, bf, the dumbest thing you have ever said was this: "Some comments I make might be obvious....or just plain stupid."

ok...now that everyone is feeling shiney and happy did anything actually help this thread?

While I have learned kata over the years, (erm...not TKD kata that is ), there was no bunkai per se, as the applications were spelled out quite clearly.

So I actually lurk with some interest here. The idea that you may not know a given application, and have to infer what it may be, is quite a step for me.

OR MAYBE YOU NANCY-BOYS JUST NEED TWO WORDS:

COBRA-KAI!!!!!!!

Yep--- that one-legged stance is the Diamond Posture.

I also saw the Mountain Posture several times including the turn.

Thanks for the clip.

Best Wishes,

Bruce
