At the Cork IIC led by GM Choi in March 2008, it was explained that for the back piercing kick, the face should face forwards and not at the target.
For Movement 40 in Kodang, does that mean that the face is not turned to D while forming a bending stance B toward C? Or is the face turned to D initially, but then returned towards C as the actual kick is made?
Also, as the actual kick is made, are the arms outstretched as in forming a bending stance B, or are they pulled in as if in a guarding block; or, held in another way?
We did not reach Juche, now Kodang, at that IIC.
I have the third (1993) edition of the Encyclopedia of Taekwon-Do.
Thank you for any assistance to these questions.
