Dear All
 
I have a question. In the Pattern Hwa-rang is move number 12 a trap or a release. Or better yet, Is move 11 through 13 considered a releasing sequence or a trapping sequence.

I was told that it is a releasing sequence. I think because you grab your own fist instead of the opponent's fist.

But on the other hand, it could also be used as an trapping application.

So sir, is the release a result of the bending of the arm, or as a result of the kick.

I was told that an opponent grabs your arm after you have 'punched'. You are bending your arm and keeping your 'weigh' back, because the opponent is pulling your arm. So keeping your weigh back, is preventing you from losing balance (if you don't, you would have been pulled over by the opponent).

Then you grab your fist, and you pull your arm back, at the same time you perform the side piercing kick.

So i guess the answer to your question is: both.
