Hello Sir's & Maam's,

I'd like to pose a question to anyone reading. Movement number 12 in Toi-Gye Tul is a slow motion twin side elbow thrust. I've seen the "chamber" for this performed multiple ways. Sometimes the arms get crossed, sometimes they don't. When the arms do get crossed, sometimes the right hand is out and sometime the left hand is out. I hope that makes sense to everyone reading. What is the PROPER ITF way of chambering this move?

Thank you all.

Taekwon

Sir,

The arms do indeed cross. Regarding which hand goes on top verses bottom, last I was informed it does not matter. If you take the wedging block with the inner forearm like in the pattern Po-Eun since both arms are doing the same action there is nothing in writing about which hand goes on top verses which one goes on bottom.

Thank you very much Sir. I thought that was the case, but you know how it is sometimes, Sir. When you see a bunch of people doing it differently, sometimes you start to second guess yourself.

Taekwon!
