EJuly 22, 2017, Portland Oregon, Bethany Village, the home of U.S. World Class Taekwondo Bethany, we welcome Ms. Thoa Nguyen a Master Instructor with over 35 years of training under her World Champion Belt.
Three hours of intensive Taekwondo training, focused on Competitive Poomsae, commonly known to the general public as kata or forms, a complex of movements, a formal exercise. Poomsae has a deeper and spiritual meaning that is done in almost every aspect of life. Kata is a series of movements and techniques that are practiced in a pattern. Kata is similar to shadow boxing except each move is prearranged and choreographed in a geometrical pattern.
Each Poomsae is designed to teach a central principle or a set of common technique. Each Poomsae is done at a certain speed and tempo. In Some Poomsae the speed varies from move to move while others are done at one speed and at one tempo. Through Poomsae we learn proper stance, focus and transition between technique.
The high level training included a video review section for the students to be able to see their performance video reply in real time.
We want to thank you for your time and for the valuable tips on how to improve the forms!
" Thank you Master George for welcoming me! I had so much fun, students are awesome, and we had so much fun!!! I look forward to the next training session!"
