Hello Sirs,

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.

Hello Mr Borja,
Master Dalton taught me this pattern and we also went through it with President Choi and Master Nicholls in England 2 years ago.
From my recollection, as you perform the bending ready stance B, there is a look over the left shoulder. As you kick out it is hard to look directly over the shoulder for the correct form on dwi cha jirugi so although you are looking left you cannot really look directly at the kick.
The arms are held as they were in bending ready stance B, for me they re-orientate slightly in position to maintain balance as the kick is performed slowly.

Hope that helps sir,

ps- I am still awating to get those names back from my Korean student!

Mr. Mackey is correct. Do you slightly look over your shoulder but do not turn your neck fully otherwise you will tend to turn your back kick into a side kick. The important thing is the leg kicks straight back without lifting the knee up and making the kick look like a side piercing kick. The angle of the kicking foot is also different from the the angle in a side kick. The arms are held the way they are in a bending stance, then the leg is extended.

"formally" in topic title should have been "formerly".
Good spell-checkers are hard to come by these days. : )
