Greetings,

When I perform the pattern Choong-Moo I execute the punches with the side piercing kicks.  An individual made a statement to me that I wasn't sure about and wanted to double check to ensure I'm not losing my marbles. 

I was told that when performing both the side kicks in Choong-Moo they do not execute the punches because the side piercing kicks are done back to back.  I'm not sure if they are performing them as continous or fast motion or whatever. 

Are the punches performed when executing both side piercing kicks?  I'd hate to think I've been doing it wrong and nobody point them out.

Additionally, my next question would be when would the punch NOT be required when doing any of the various "side kicks?"

Hi Mr Munyon,

As like you I've always done the punches, and have always seen the punches performed witht the consecutive side kicks.
Here is a recent video of them being performed by Jaroslaw Suska (ITFV world champion) and note the punches - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxbB2Wiv2R0

This just clarified it for me in case they weren't meant to be there, but I'm pretty sure they are.

I use the punches on any movement that doesn't require the hands being pulled back or held in postions like forearm guarding block or knife low inward strike in Kwang Ge.

All the best!
Jon

Mr. Mackey,

Thanks for the reply. I basically said the same thing to my friend, but it seems folks have too many different sources for thier claims. Many folks go by the 15 Vol set encyclopedias, the condense version, videos, seminars and what their instructor teaches them. It's amazing to hear and see the differences due to their particular source.

How's things in Ireland?

Hi Mr Munyon,
All is well here thanks, apart from the weather!
We have an ITF umpires course tomorrow so looking forward to that.

Have you signed up to the TKDsource website yet? I haven't seen you there.

How is everything with you?
