hello; with the many types of taekwondo poomses studied by the different organisations of taekwondo. i would like to know what types of poomses you teach or study at your school? also maybe you can include which ones are your personal favorites and which ones you use in tourniments and demonstrations?

to persevere is to win

the type of poomse i study are the PALGWE and TAEGUEK type plus the black belt forms. my favorites are KEUMGANG and TAEBAEK. these black belt forms show the most power and finesse. KEUMGANG represents the diamond which is smooth and the strongest material on earth. TAEBAEK represents the mountain in korea which is tall and unmovable. i usually use KEUMGANG and TAEBAEK in tourniments and demonstrations.

Please forgive my ignorance but what is a "poomse"? I have never heard of it.

sorry gentlemen;
poomse is the korean word for forms, another older word used is hyungs. in japanese it is called kata. maybe you can enlighten me and tell me what the name for forms is in other martial arts.
sorry for the misunderstanding.

Tang Soo Do, use the word Hyung.
I recognize all of them.

When I do practice them..I do both WTF. and Itf. However, my favorite is Taebek

I study the PALGWE and TAEGUEK forms and the black belt forms. My favorite is Koryo, because it was used in my Black belt test.

I'm learning Palgwe and Taegeuk forms. Occasionally we do Chong Bong forms. CB roughly translates to mountain top or small mountain. These forms were created by my instructors first TKD teacher and we do these to remember our own history.

My favorite form (so far) is palgwe oh-jang and I've gotten medals for Taegeuksa-jang

NEIL0092...keep up your studies of the taekwondo poomses...as you advance you'll find more intense hand and blocking techniques to learn. the black belt forms are full of creative offensive and defensive hand techniques.
