This page looks at Tang Soo Do forms (hyung). It provides form videos and written instructions to help you prepare you for your next Tang Soo Do belt test. Hyung (forms) are used in Tang Soo Do in order to practice certain martial arts techniques (i.e. kicking combinations) as well as for conditioning purposes, muscle memory, focus/concentration, etc. In order to master these Tang Soo Do forms, you must also have proper Tang Soo Do stances, etc.
However, be aware that many Tang Soo Do schools add extra forms (hyung) to their curriculum, have their forms (hyung) in different orders/sequences and occasionally modify existing forms (hyung). In addition, schools belonging to different Tang Soo Do associations have different form (hyung) requirements. Therefore, please check with your instructor for the proper techniques and Tang Soo Do forms (hyung) used at your school.
While many Tang Soo Do schools start with the Ki Cho forms, World Tang Soo Do Association schools start with Sae Kye Hyung (see the bottom of this page).
