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?"
