Background on Soo Bahk Do Techniques

January 2007

In the pages of this section I have published detailed descriptions of low-level Soo Bahk Do material, specifically hyung and il soo sik. White Belts typically have SOOOO many questions on the correct way to do the beginning material, I decided to write a step-by-step description of what we do and how we do it. This enables them to practice on their own and understand the basics of how things are done. A bit of solo-practice in this will make class time far more productive for them and for SBN Bannard.

So far I've created descriptions of Ki Cho Hyung Il Bu and Il Soo Sik Dae Ryun Il Bon. The descriptions include definitions for all Korean terms, includes Korean words and their English translations, functioning as a primer on Korean terms as well as a description of the material.

These descriptions are designed to help beginners practice at home, learning the sequence of moves, and reinforcing the "how" to do things that SBN Bannard teaches in class. It's certainly not a substitute for class time!

Note: I intend to eventually complete similar descriptions for Ki Cho Hyung Ee Bu and Sam Bu, and Il Soo Sik Dae Ryun Ee Bon through Sa Bon. To the best of my knowledge these techniques are not specific to Soo Bahk Do -- other styles have their own versions of them. If time and enthusiasm allow I may create descriptions of the Pyung Ahn hyung and more of the Il Soo Sik. Time will tell ...

I will NOT create descriptions of the Chil Sung hyung, or any other Soo Bahk Do specific material. Anything copyrighted by the Federation will not be published here.

These descriptions were created on my own initiative and belong solely to me. They may not be copied or reproduced for commercial use or gain without the explicit permission of the author.
