Sip Sam Hyung

  1. Very Slowly; cross the right fist to the left shoulder, move your left foot into Soco Rip Jaseh (450 angle Kyma Jaseh stance) - but how you get to the Soco Rip stance is important. The left toe arcs from its Chun Be stance, first moving to the right, then forward, and finally leftward – again, in an arc. The Soco Rip Jaseh stance is low as if sitting on a low footstool. As soon as the left foot is in position, the hands begin a very slow Inside / Outside block with a deep exhale. The entire move is said to take minutes – but in reality is 20+ seconds. The move ends with the upper body in an Inside / Outside Block, looking over the left fist with the lower body in a 450 angled Horse Riding Stance.
  2. With a clear snap, execute a Reverse Middle Knuckle Punch with the right fist, pivoting into a left leg leading front stance and using the right hip for additional force. (A knuckle punch is essentially a normal punch with the knuckle of the index fingers extended. You actually strike with the flat front side of the second joint (not the knuckle joint). The thumb, rather than wrapping under the fingers as normal, instead lays against the side of the fist and presses inward / sideways into the tip (side of actually) of the index finger.)
  3. Same move with the opposite hand and foot. Very Slowly; cross the left fist to the right shoulder, move your right foot into Soco Rip Jaseh (450 angle Kyma Jaseh stance) - but how you get to the Soco Rip stance is important. The right toe arcs from its Chun Be stance, first moving to the left, then forward, and finally rightward – again, in an arc. The Soco Rip Jaseh stance is low as if sitting on a low footstool. As soon as the right foot is in position, the hands begin a very slow Inside / Outside block with a deep exhale. The entire move is said to take minutes – but in reality is 20+ seconds. The move ends with the upper body in an Inside / Outside Block, looking over the right fist with the lower body in a 450 angled Horse Riding Stance.
  4. With a clear snap, execute a Reverse Middle Knuckle Punch with the left fist, pivoting into a right leg leading front stance and using the left hip for additional force.
  5. Same move with the opposite hand and foot. Very Slowly; cross the right fist to the left shoulder, move your left foot into Soco Rip Jaseh (450 angle Kyma Jaseh stance) - but how you get to the Soco Rip stance is important. The left toe arcs from its Chun Be stance, first moving to the right, then forward, and finally leftward – again, in an arc. The Soco Rip Jaseh stance is low as if sitting on a low footstool. As soon as the left foot is in position, the hands begin a very slow Inside / Outside block with a deep exhale. The entire move is said to take minutes – but in reality is 20+ seconds. The move ends with the upper body in an Inside / Outside Block, looking over the left fist with the lower body in a 450 angled Horse Riding Stance.
  6. With a clear snap, execute a Reverse Middle Knuckle Punch with the right fist, pivoting into a left leg leading front stance and using the right hip for additional force.
  7. Pull both fists, palm up, back to their respective rib cages and immediately execute a double knuckle punch at the presumed opponent’s pectorals. Ki-yup.
  8. The hands and arms now execute two windmill blocks, first high and then low. From the double punch position the fisted hands begin to drop and cross right in front of the chest, left over right each continuing in the motion; right clockwise, left counterclockwise until both arms are in “muscle-man” position – although the hands open in the process and the fingers point skyward –upper arms are parallel with the floor, elbow is bent 900, forearms are vertical and the palms are open toward the ears.
  9. Immediately the hands reverse their motions, crossing in front of the face (right closer / inside) and continue in the trajectories until both hand are executing a low Knife Block at their respective sides of the body. The upper arms, forearms, and palm-down hands are in a straight line, angled 450 from the shoulders, thumbs in tight.
  10. You are in a Front Stance facing forward, at the conclusion of this move you will be in another Front Stance facing 1800 backward. Look left 1800. Pick up your right (back) leg and step forward, but as you do turn, to the back; into the direction you are looking, and set the right foot down into a left foot leading Front Stance. As you execute this turn the hand move in unison; the left crossing up to the right shoulder, and then continuing downward as in Sip Soo as if pushing down the earth. Eventually the left arm will be extended in a straight line downward at a 450 angle. (and by 450 I mean this – if you are standing on the face of a clock such that noon is directly in front, and 9:00 is directly beside you, your left arm is angled downward from the should at a 450 and pointing between 10:00 and 11:00). Unlike the previous move however, the palm of the left hand is flat / parallel with the floor. As the left hand is moving, and the body is turning, the right hand is also flowing to a new position. First, the right palm moves to the left eventually turning palm up and continuing in its trajectory until it is beside the right side of the face, fingers to the sky. With the briefest of pauses, the right hand turns forward and executes a One Finger Punch to the underside of the opponent’s chin. The thumb is tucked in tightly; the fingers are all curled at the first knuckle, and the index finger is ever so slightly bent for strength. This finger punch is done sharply and adds clear finality to the entire set of moves; body, feet, and hands. The next two moves are repeats of this, with two exceptions; first, there is no turning around and secondly the next two moves are executed more slowly.
  11. Step forward into another Front Stance, with a slight pause as you right foot passes your left knee to demonstrate balance. As you step the hands reverse position – the right palm is pulled back to the left shoulder and then proceeds downward to the right at a 450 angle, with the palm parallel to the floor. The left palm moves to the right and continues by turning palm upward and leftward until it is beside the face, fingers pointing skyward. With the briefest of pauses, the left hand turns forward and executes a One Finger Punch to the underside of the opponent’s chin. The thumb is tucked in tightly; the fingers are all curled at the first knuckle, and the index finger is ever so slightly bent for strength. This finger punch is done sharply and adds clear finality to the entire set of moves; body, feet, and hands.
  12. Step forward into another Front Stance, with a slight pause as you left foot passes your right knee to demonstrate balance. As you step the hands reverse position – the left palm is pulled back to the right shoulder and then proceeds downward to the left at a 450 angle, with the palm parallel to the floor. The right palm moves to the left and continues by turning palm upward and rightward until it is beside the face, fingers pointing skyward. With the briefest of pauses, the right hand turns forward and executes a One Finger Punch to the underside of the opponent’s chin. The thumb is tucked in tightly; the fingers are all curled at the first knuckle, and the index finger is ever so slightly bent for strength. This finger punch is done sharply and adds clear finality to the entire set of moves; body, feet, and hands.
  13. Look right 900. Cross the left fist to the right shoulder, fisting the right hand as well. With snap shift from a left leg leading Front Stance facing the back of the room (1800 from original Chun Be position), to a right leg leading Front Stance facing 900 to the right (or 900 left of the Original Chun Be position). As you turn with a crisp snap execute a right arm Inside / Outside Block.
  14. Immediately execute a Middle Punch with the left fist followed by a Middle Punch with the right fist.
  15. Look left 1800. Turn your entire body to the left 1800 and with the slightest possible jump land in a left leg leading Front Stance and execute a left hand Inside / Outside Block.
  16. Immediately execute a Middle Punch with the right fist followed by a Middle Punch with the left fist.
  17. Look right 900. This should be 1800 from the original Chun Be Position. Pick up the right foot and turn 900 right setting your right foot down into a right foot leading Front Stance executing an Inside / Outside block as you do.
  18. Immediately execute a Middle Punch with the left fist followed by a Middle Punch with the right fist.
  19. Look left 1800. Pull your right fist up to your left shoulder and punch with your left fist downward. Both hands and your left foot will now move rapidly together and reach their destinations simultaneously. The right fist will be pulled back to the right rib cage. The left arm and fist will rotate counterclockwise, staying close to the body and end with the fisted arm fully extended skyward with the left bicep mere inches from your left ear. The elbow will remain slightly bent. As your hands are positioning, the left foot is pulled forward and the toes are wrapped around the back of the right knee. At the conclusion of the move, your chest is facing 900 right of the original Chun Be position, although your eyes are facing forward toward the original Chun Be position. You have to look around your extended left arm to do this. Your left knee is pointing in the same direction as your chest.
  20. With your left foot stomp downward into a Horse Riding stance while continuing to face 900 right of original Chun Be position while continuing to look forward. As the foot strikes downward, the extended left arm also strikes downward and executes a downward shoulder high Back Fist – but first the arm bends at the elbow almost wrapping itself over the top of the head. The back fist is to strike the same opponent that the left foot is stomping. The left arm is never fully extended and should remain ever so slightly bent at the elbow.
  21. Immediately, the left fist executes a shoulder high Punch, i.e. the downward striking Back Fist is thrust forward (towards the original Chun Be Position) and rotated clockwise 900. (If you rotated a downward striking Back Fist 1800, the fist would end up palm down – that would be too much rotation).
  22. With the right foot cross in front of the left, picking up the left foot and knee, turning your hips and executing a Stepping Side Kick. Your left arm remains extended throughout this kick.
  23. Pull the kicking foot back, and also pull in the left fist to the left rib cage while extending the right palm down fisted right hand forward (in the direction of the kick). As you pull your left fist back to your body you should now pivot 900 left to face the original Chun Be position.
  24. With your left foot, step down into a Horse Riding Stance and execute a left hand Side Punch. Naturally, your right fist should be pulled back to your right rib cage. Again, your body will return to facing 900 right of original Chun Be Position although your eyes continue to look forward.
  25. Immediately pivot your entire body 900 leftward into a left leg leading Front Stance and execute a Reverse Middle Punch with the right fist. You should now be facing in the same direction as the original Chun Be position.
  26. Immediately punch down with the left fist and execute a left arm High Block.
  27. Look right 1800. Pull your left fist up to your right shoulder and punch with your right fist downward. Both hands and your right foot will now move rapidly together and reach their destinations simultaneously. The left fist will be pulled back to the left rib cage. The right arm and fist will rotate clockwise, staying close to the body and end with the fisted arm fully extended skyward with the right bicep mere inches from your right ear. The elbow will remain slightly bent. As your hands are positioning, the right foot is pulled forward and the toes are wrapped around the back of the left knee. At the conclusion of the move, your chest is facing 900 right of the original Chun Be position, although your eyes are facing backward away from the original Chun Be position. You have to look around your extended right arm to do this. Your right knee is pointing in the same direction as your chest.
  28. With your right foot stomp downward into a Horse Riding stance while continuing to face 900 right of original Chun Be position while continuing to look backward. As the foot strikes downward, the extended right arm also strikes downward and executes a downward shoulder high Back Fist – but first the arm bends at the elbow almost wrapping itself over the top of the head. The back fist is to strike the same opponent that the right foot is stomping. The right arm is never fully extended and should remain ever so slightly bent at the elbow.
  29. Immediately, the right fist executes a shoulder high Punch, i.e. the downward striking Back Fist is thrust forward (1800 opposite of the original Chun Be Position) and rotated clockwise 900. (If you rotated a downward striking Back Fist 1800, the fist would end up palm down – that would be too much rotation).
  30. With the left foot cross in front of the right, picking up the right foot and knee, turning your hips and executing a Stepping Side Kick. Your right arm remains extended throughout this kick.
  31. Pull the kicking foot back, and also pull in the right fist to the right rib cage while extending the left palm down fisted left hand forward (in the direction of the kick). As you pull your right fist back to your body you should now pivot 900 right to face 1800 opposite of the original Chun Be position.
  32. With your right foot, step down into a Horse Riding Stance and execute a right hand Side Punch. Naturally, your left fist should be pulled back to your left rib cage. Again, your body will return to facing 900 right of original Chun Be Position although your eyes continue to look “forward.” (This is misleading and looking forward is 1800 from the original Chun Be position)
  33. Immediately pivot your entire body 900 rightward into a right leg leading Front Stance and execute a Reverse Middle Punch with the left fist. You should now be facing 1800 opposite of the original Chun Be position.
  34. Immediately punch down with the right fist and execute a right arm High Block.
  35. Look left 1800. Pull your right fist up to your left shoulder and punch with your left fist downward. Both hands and your left foot will now move rapidly together and reach their destinations simultaneously. The right fist will be pulled back to the right rib cage. The left arm and fist will rotate counterclockwise, staying close to the body and end with the fisted arm fully extended skyward with the left bicep mere inches from your left ear. The elbow will remain slightly bent. As your hands are positioning, the left foot is pulled forward and the toes are wrapped around the back of the right knee. At the conclusion of the move, your chest is facing 900 right of the original Chun Be position, although your eyes are facing forward toward the original Chun Be position. You have to look around your extended left arm to do this. Your left knee is pointing in the same direction as your chest.
  36. With your left foot stomp downward into a Horse Riding stance while continuing to face 900 right of original Chun Be position while continuing to look forward. As the foot strikes downward, the extended left arm also strikes downward and executes a downward shoulder high Back Fist – but first the arm bends at the elbow almost wrapping itself over the top of the head. The back fist is to strike the same opponent that the left foot is stomping. The left arm is never fully extended and should remain ever so slightly bent at the elbow.
  37. Immediately open the fingers of the left hand and rotate the palm 900 clockwise as if to execute a Pyong Kong Kyuck Finger Strike. Alternatively, you can think of this technique as quickly placing the open hand on the back of the opponent’s neck.
  38. Pivot 900 left into a left leg leading Front Stance and immediately execute an Outside / Inside kick slapping the extended left hand smartly. Pause slightly.
  39. With the right foot, step back into a left leg leading Front Stance to return facing into the original Chun Be position and execute a Reverse Middle Punch with the right hand. Ki-yup.
  40. Slide the left foot back behind the right foot as you slowly descend into a very low crotched / sitting position. Your right foot will remain flat on the ground while the balls of the left feet, wrapped around and behind the right will provide balance. As you descend, bring both open palms to their respective rib cages but open and facing forward as if ready to execute two palm strikes. The heels of the hands will touch the ribs when your feet have touched but your descent is only half as low as you can go. As you continue sitting, brings the heels of the palms together until they touch and then proceed moving them forward as if executing a very slow two-hand palm block. At the conclusion of this move, your butt should be touching the heel of your left foot and your arms should be extended outward and downward as a 450 angle.
