I am wondering if someone could tell me a website that has the ATA forms illustrated.
and/or Hwa rang do forms.

I am interested in getting into one of these schools and can't seem to find illustrations or videos of all the forms.

penguin,

ATA copyrighted their forms. A stroke of business genius but a source of much acrimony. Look on e-bay and I bet some are available. I suspect the sequences of moves are available if the names meant anything to you w/o illustration.

have you considered any other TKD styles? just asking. and if you are a good visual lerner, you could watch on youtube. the only thing is, these are no substitutes for live instruction.

I was informed that the ATA schools are better suited to handle my disability better, but if I was misinformed could you recommend a good TKD or other martial art school that caters to people with disabilities.

AHH i had just written a LONG reply when my internet explorer CRASHED! just for you, i will rewrite it: May i ask what kind of disability and/or what kind of limitations you have as a result? i think that ANY taekwondo school can work with someone who has disabilities. it just depends on the instructor. now it is my understanding that hwarangdo has grappling/throwing in its curriculum. is that within your capabilities? my suggestion is to look for a school that isn't too large or commercialized. big, commercialized schools usually have multiple instructors and large classes. this can take away from time that would otherwise be spent assisting your special needs. look for a traditional school that doesn't have flashy and extraneous elements. whatever you do, don't let your disability hold you back. if an instructor has the slightest air of uncertainty when talking to you, i would rule out that dojang. also see in what setting the instructor talk to you. if the instructor takes you to his office so you can sit down and seriously discuss your options, that instructor would probably be a good choice. if it is a rushed conversation in the school's lobby, i would steer clear. you could watch how the class runs. would most of the stuff fit you? is it the kind of stuff you could picture yourself doing? i think that at the end of the day, you will know what is right for you. you will just be able to tell. i have trained in 4 different schools and i have gone through the looking process 4 times. be patient and you will find the right school. it doesn't even have to be tae kwon do. you could look into tang soo do (a close cousin of tae kwon do), karate, or even kung fu. it would help if i knew what kind of limitations you face.

TKD X

TKD_X this has been the subject of a few threads already (specific to his situation). The simple fact is that with continuity of training in a single style, he could hold a fairly high rank given the time that he has put in.

He doesn't know me jeff, so shh.

seriously

TKD_X I have a massive hernia that prevents high kicks, spin kicks, and jumping kicks. I want to earn my black belt(finally) after 26 years of in dojang and out(as indicated by jeff). This is one of the reasons why I want to find out what the forms (sorry forgot Korean word for kata)

By the way, thank you about the identifying a good school. I need to be reminded. I almost went to check out a commercialized school, but decided not to because of you. (the schools initials are K A)

i thought you might say something to that effect (about the high kicks etc.). that is why i suggested a traditional school that doesn't base their system on flashy techniques. i admire your perseverance. i trained for 10 years before i achieved my black belt after setbacks and starting over from the beginning twice. it will be worth it.

i'm glad to help anytime!

P.S. there are a few Korean words for "form." the only ones i'm aware of are poomse, hyung, and tul.

this will be starting over 4 or 5 depending on how you count. I was informed I might be able to retain a partial rank. I just hope it is not 8 gup or yellow belt. I was at one time 3 kup in Kyokushin kai and a 5 gup in Tae kwon do.

penguin,

I have never met someone so concerned with rank and so little with actual learning.
