Bong Hyung Cho Dan

  1. Turn 900 to the left and step into a fighting stance. Execute a left-side low block. Almost all of the staff moves begin with a sweep move to either upend an opponent or block a low strike. From chun be, for example, the left end of the staff dips to the left ankle before being brought up to the right shoulder in preparation for the low block.
  2. Turn 1800 to the right stepping into a fighting stance and execute a right-side low block. Here again the low end of the staff stays low as you turn 1800 as if to block or sweep. This sweeping motion continues throughout the form.
  3. Turn 900 to the left, again sweeping with the low end of the staff and step into a front stance with the left leg and execute a left-side low block.
  4. Step forward (sweeping the front/low end of the staff to the right) into a front stance and execute a right-side low block followed by a right-side high strike.
  5. Step forward into a front stance and execute a left-side low block followed by a right side high strike. The next move continues without stopping.
  6. Move the front tip of the staff to the right and dip it downward along the right side of the body and then continue moving the same end upward and left until the staff is parallel to the ground and pulled against your chest. Your feet should be in Soco rip jase (450 horse riding stance). Pause, then execute a high block.
  7. Leaving the bong high and parallel to the floor, execute a high kick with the right foot, Ki-yup.
  8. Step forward with the right foot into a front stance and execute a right-side low block.
  9. Turn left 1800 sweeping with the front/low end of the bong and step into a font stance with the left leg leading and execute a left side low block.
  10. Step forward into a front stance and execute a right-side low block followed by a right-side high strike.
  11. Step forward into a front stance and execute a left-side low block followed by a left-side high strike. The next move continues without stopping.
  12. Move the front tip of the staff to the right and dip it downward along the right side of the body and then continue moving the same end upward and left until the staff is parallel to the ground and pulled against your chest. Your feet should be in Soco rip jase (450 horse riding stance). Pause, then execute a high block.
  13. Leaving the bong high and parallel to the floor, execute a high kick with the left foot, Ki-yup.
  14. Step forward with the left foot into a front stance and execute a left-side low block.
  15. Turn left 1800 and step into a font stance with the left leg leading and execute a left side high block.
  16. Pull the bong to the chest parallel to the floor, pause, then execute a high block.
  17. Pull the bong down to your chest and at the same time...
  18. Execute a high kick with the right foot. Step back with the right foot into a left leg leading front stance.
  19. Strike forward with the left side of the bong.
  20. Strike forward with the right side of the bong.

The chun be starts by rotating the forward/right end of he bong downward until it is under the left armpit. Then the new forward/left end of the bong ‘paddles’ to the right of the body followed by the left end ‘paddling’ to the left side.
