Tang Soo Do Forms

Forms or "Hyungs" in Korean, are a series of defending and attacking movements performed against imaginary opponents in a set pattern. Through the practice of forms, students learn the application of various Tae Kwon Do techniques and classical combinations. Forms serve a multi-dimensional purpose, aiding in the development of coordination, balance, timing, breath control and rhythm.

Meaning of the Tang Soo Do Forms

Pyung Ahn 1-5 -- The Pyung Ahn symbols are Chinese characters. The first character (Pyung), shaped similar to that of a balanced scale, corresponds to the English terms well-balanced, calm and peaceful. The second symbol (Ahn), corresponds to safe, confident and comfortable. It is said that by mastering the Pyung Ahn forms one can develop a feeling of "Pyung Ahn" (peace and confidence), regardless of the situation. This state can be achived because of the capabilities developed by the practice of these forms. These capabilities include, but not limited to; self-defense, balance , speed, and power control, endurance, precision and spirit.

The animal representation of Pyung Ahn forms is the turtle. This animal lives in a state of constant peace and confidence. It's actions are always slow and deliberate. It presents an impression of calm, comfort, and peace. Upon being attacked, it can withdraw into it's shell keeping it safe from harm
