Kyma Hyung Sam Dan

  1. From a normal Chun Be position bring the right fist to the left shoulder and while raising the right knee, pause for just a moment. Without stepping forward or backward stomp the right foot down into a horse-riding stance while at the same time rotating both hands counterclockwise, the right one to a low-block position and the left one to an inside-to-outside block position right in front of the nose.
  2. Immediate reverse the arms in the same fashion; that is moving both clockwise at the elbow ending with the left arm in a low block and the right in an inside-to-outside block position. The arm that is moving down crosses inside the arm that is coming up. For the remainder of this hyung this will be called the switch/switch block.
  3. The right fist moves to the left ear as if to block an incoming punch, it immediately performs an inside to outside block, ear high, ending with the right fist beside the right ear. Finally, the right fist returns to a position right in front of the nose (another outside to inside block from the right ear), but the left fist moves up from the low-block position to rest right underneath (palm down) the elbow of the right arm. This will be called a three-set block.
  4. The right fist pulls straight back to the right rib cage as if to prepare for a middle-punch. The left hand open up, palm down, almost as if to provide cover for the right fist.
  5. The right fist executes a middle punch and the left open, palm-down hand rests on the right elbow.
  6. Look right. Cross the left foot in front of the right setting the ball of the foot down. As you step the right fist turns palm upward and jerks to the right as if pulling on a rope. It is important that the hand not arc in any way, but instead move rightward in a very straight line.
  7. Pick up the right foot and stomp it down in a horse-riding stance without moving forward or backward. As the foot moves upward, the right fist moves up to the left shoulder and then in unison with the right foot the right fist executes a low back-fist right beside the right knee. The left hand actually pushes downward on the right inside elbow adding force to the back-fist.
  8. In this next more the arm does not move very much at all. Lift the entire right arm, at the shoulder, straight up, and then punch down twisting the right fist so that the palm now faces the knee.
  9. Immediately the entire arm swings backward and continues in a giant loop ending right back where it began as if performing a hammer fist. Immediately the right arm bends forward at the elbow as the right fist loops clockwise up to the left shoulder before pulling back to the right rib cage as if preparing for a middle punch.
  10. The right hand executes a middle punch. The left palm-down open-hand lies across the right elbow.
  11. Execute a switch/switch block ending with the left fist in front of the face.
  12. Execute a three-set block as follows: The left fist moves to the right ear as if to block an incoming punch, it immediately performs an inside to outside block, ear high, ending with the left fist beside the left ear. Finally, the left fist returns to a position right in front of the nose (another outside to inside block from the left ear), but the right fist moves up from the low-block position to rest right underneath (palm down) the elbow of the left arm.
  13. Execute another left hand three-set block, stepping to the left as follows: the right foot crosses in front of the left foot and sets down of the balls of the foot. The left foot immediately picks up high and stomps down in a horse-riding stance. During this move the right arm does not move, even when the left fist moves to the left ear. At that point the left elbow detaches from the top of the right fist. The three-step of the three-step block are coordinated with three steps of the feet (cross, lift, stomp).
  14. Pull the left fist back to the left rib cage as if preparing for a middle punch. The right hand opens and remains palm down as if to cover the left fist.
  15. Middle punch with the left fist.
  16. Look left. Cross the right foot in front of the left setting the ball of the foot down. As you step the left fist turns palm upward and jerks to the left as if pulling on a rope that emanates from the right. It is important that the hand not arc in any way, but instead move leftward in a very straight line.
  17. Pick up the left foot and stomp it down in a horse-riding stance without moving forward or backward. As the foot moves upward, the left fist moves up to the right shoulder and then in unison with the left foot the left fist executes a low back-fist right beside the left knee. The right hand actually pushes downward on the left inside elbow adding force to the back-fist.
  18. In this next more the arm does not move very much at all. Lift the entire left arm, at the shoulder, straight up, and then punch down twisting the left fist so that the palm now faces the knee.
  19. Immediately the entire arm swings backward and continues in a giant loop ending right back where it began as if performing a hammer fist. Immediately the left arm bends forward at the elbow as the left fist loops counterclockwise up to the right shoulder before pulling back to the left rib cage as if preparing for a middle punch.
  20. The left hand executes a middle punch. The right palm-down open-hand lies across the left elbow.
  21. Look right. The right open hand executes a high soo do attack to you right, keeping the elbow bent. The left fist returns to the left rib cage.
  22. Execute a short punch (Yuk Jin) to the right with the left fist as the right fist is snapped back to the right rib cage.
  23. The left fist punches down to the groin as the right fist is brought up to the left shoulder. Immediately cross the left foot in front of the right setting the balls of the foot down. Pick up the right foot high and stomp down in a horse-riding stance. As you move rightward, the left arm rotates counterclockwise executing an inside to outside block ending right in front of your face, palm towards you. The right hand also moves fist up to the left shoulder and then pulled back against the right rib cage. This combination step a nd block is the classic Kyma form move.
  24. Execute a three-step block with the left arm. Ki-yup. (This is the only Ki-yup in the form). Return to chun be by lifting the right foot.
