  • Ready Stance.
  • Look left. Bring both open hands down to your right hip. Raise your left leg and turn 90 degrees to the left stepping into a Fighting Stance. The left arm swings up from the right hip and ends in a Middle Knife Hand block. The right arm swings upward from the hip and ends above the forehead in a High Knife Hand Block. Fighting Stance.
  • Look right. Bring both open hands down to your left hip. Raise your right leg and turn 180 degrees to the left stepping into a Fighting Stance. The right arm swings up from the left hip and ends in a Middle Knife Hand block. The left arm swings upward from the hip and ends above the forehead in a High Knife Hand Block. Fighting Stance.
  • Look left. Raise the left leg and turn 90 degrees to the left and land in a low Front Stance. Bring both fists down to the right hip. With the right arm on top, push the crossed arms downward as if to block an incoming groin kick. Low Front Stance.
  • Bring both hands to the left hip. Step forward in to a Fighting Stance. Bring both fists around into a Two-Hand Block. Fighting Stance.
  • Turn your right arm downward 180 degrees straightening it out. Pull the left fist back to the left rib cage. In one snapping motion, pull the right fist back to the right rib cage and bring the left arm up in front of your chest, tight fist, palm downward. Bring your left leg up until the thigh is parallel with the floor. Standing on the right foot, left thigh parallel with the floor, toes up. Look left.
  • This move is similar to, but not exactly like Pyung Ahn E Dan’s kick. Looking left perform a side kick with your left leg and a punch with your left fist. Pull your kick back in but leave the fist extended.
  • Set the kicking leg down so that you are facing in the direction you just kicked. This should be a front stance. As the foot touches the floor, the elbow of the right arm strikes the palm of the left hand. At the conclusion of this move you will be in a front stance with both arms crossed out in front of you. The elbow of the right arm will be against the palm of the left hand and the knuckles of the right hand will be against the biceps of the left arm.
  • Look 180 degrees to the right. In one quick motion turn in the direction you are now looking and move into a fighting stance. The hands change such that the left fist is next to the left rib cage palm upwards. The right arm is across the chest and the fists of the two hands are knuckle to knuckle.
  • In a quick motion raise the right leg until the thigh is parallel to the floor in preparation for a side kick.
  • Looking right perform a side kick with your right leg and a punch with your right fist. Pull your kick back in but leave the fist extended.
  • Set the kicking leg down so that you are facing in the direction you just kicked. This should be a front stance. As the foot touches the floor, the elbow of the left arm strikes the palm of the right hand. At the conclusion of this move you will be in a front stance with both arms crossed out in front of you. The elbow of the left arm will be against the palm of the right hand and the knuckles of the left hand will be against the biceps of the right arm.
  • Look left. The right hand rotates such that the palm, which starts out facing your body, ends up directly above where it was but facing outward . The left fist drops slightly. This move begins and ends in a front stance, and the feet never leave the ground. At the beginning, the right foot is in the leading position. As you turn to the left, the feet rotate and end with the left foot in the leading position - pivoting from Front Stance to Front Stance. Rotate the entire body to the left 90 degrees and as you do the right hand executes a neck high, palm up sudo at the same time the left open hand moves above the head, like a high block, with the palm facing upward.
  • With the right foot perform a high front snap kick. After the kick leave the bent shin in the air for a split second before continuing.
  • Cross the left and right arms with the right arm crossing downward and on the outside of the two. Leap ahead landing on the right foot first with the balls of the left foot landing a fraction of a second later, wrapped behind the right heel. As you land perform a right hand side block pulling the left hand back to the left rib cage. Ki-yup.
  • Pick up the left leg and turn 225 degrees to the left. As you turn, both hands cross in front of you with the palms open and facing your face, each as if in a soo do. The right arm is on the outside. When the hands cross in front of the body they should form a large ‘X’. The tips of the fingers should be just above shoulder height and your face should show between the hands. Just before you set your left foot down after the turn, close your fists as if to grab the insides of the lapels of your opponent. As you set the left leg down into a front stance, both wrists turn inward with a flick to choke the opponent with their own shirt/jacket/dobok. Elbows tucked in. Front stance with the left leg leading.
  • Twist your right hand inward as if grabbing an opponent’s shirt. Your fists will face in opposite directions.
  • Pull your right fist back to the right rib cage and front snap kick with your right leg. Hold the bent leg for a slit second to show balance. Set the right leg down into a front stance.
  • Middle punch with the right fist pulling the left first back to the left rib cage. Middle punch with the left fist pulling the right fist back.
  • Pick up the right leg and turn 90 degrees to the right. As you turn, your hands again cross in front of you like an ‘X’ with the palms open towards your face and the left arm on the outside. Just before the right leg sets down close the fists as if grabbing the insides of the lapels of your opponent. As you set the right leg down the wrists snap around. Turning 90 degrees to the right from the last position will leave you 45 degrees off the center line from which you started (Although you are now facing backwards from your original Chun Be position.)
  • Twist your left hand inward as if grabbing an opponent’s shirt. Your fists will face in opposite directions.
  • Pull your left fist back to the left rib cage and front snap kick with your left leg. Hold the bent leg for a slit second to show balance. Set the left leg down into a front stance.
  • Middle punch with the left fist pulling the right first back to the right rib cage. Middle punch with the right fist pulling the left fist back.
  • Pull both fists back to the right hip and raise the left leg until the thigh is parallel with the floor. Snap both hand around while turning to the left 45 degrees and end in two-fist block in a fighting stance.
  • Pull both fists back to the left hip and step forward into a two-fist block in a fighting stance.
  • Pull both fists back to the right hip and step forward into a two-fist block in a fighting stance. Do the next move immediately.
  • Pull both open hands back to the right hip and return them to the front as if to grab the shoulders of an opponent. As the hands come forward slide the feet into a front stance with the left leg leading.
  • Close both fists and pull them downward until both arms are straight downward. As the hands move down the right knee move up as if to strike. Keep the toes of the right foot pointed downward. Remain standing on the left foot, knee slightly bent. Ki-yup.
  • Bring both hands to the right hip as you turn 135 degrees to the left. Set the right foot down behind you in a fighting stance and perform a middle knife hand block.
  • Bring both hands to the left hip as you raise your right leg and step forward and 45 degrees to the right and end with a middle knife hand block in a fighting stance.
  • Return to Ready Stance.
