Poomse....I learn HKD..but my supplimentry art is karate...many people discredit the Kata..which is just the japanese form of poomse...kata is karate...you must understand the kata...how it applies what it means...each movement is a movement of self defense using the tools of the chosen art...as was said before you must understand the basics before you can apply...each block strike, is applied to different situations..as you grow in MA you will recognise this!

Do not discredit it untill you understand it fully...learning how to kick and punch correctly is one thing..but you do it to apply to poomse/kata!

No matter how fashionable it is on Krypton, I will not wear my underwear on the outside of my Gi!!
