Thanks, I plan on sticking around for a while and am looking forward to learning more forms. There's really nothing like watching (or participating in) forms when they're in perfect sync.

I came up through the color belt ranks learning the Taeguek forms and I am now learning Palgwe. I enjoy the Palgwe forms better, they are more "art-like" than the Taeguek forms. I practice the WTF black belt forms Koryo, GuemGan, and Taebeck also.
For Hapkido I know the four forms (WHF) that were required for first dan. The Hapkido forms are much more difficult to learn that the TKD color belt forms.

Our school teaches the older hyungs/ITF forms also- Chon-gi...to Tong-Il.
The 24 patterns represent 24 hours,
one day, or eternity. The name of the pattern, the number of movements, and the diagrammatic symbol of each
pattern symbolizes either heroic figures in Korean history or instances relating to historical events.
We did Palgwe forms for some time (because of TKD entering the Olympics) but no one from our school was seriously considering that route so we abolished them. (i didn't very much care for them).
Peace,
Deb

Hello all!
The poomse we study are Taegeuk, I am currently a blue belt and I am working on Taegeuk Sa Jang which to this point is my favorite. I like the complexity of the form with the various stances, blocks and strikes.

yes...taegeuk sajang (the 4th in the series of taegeuk poomses) is the begining of the complex forms of taekwondo... i like the introduction of the spearhand thrust used in this form.
good luck in your studies.
