Some have wondered if publicizing the complete text of the hynug here is counter-productive to building or running a martial arts program. No. There is no way to learn, practice, or perfect a hynug from a text book, web site, or even videos - it's just not possible. I've seen the results; and I'm here to tell you, one needs an instructor to observe and adjust the many details that separate a rough draft from a finely tuned self defense machine.
The text below should give you some understanding of the forms, answer some questions, and support the practitioner who is learning a new hyung. As always, your first, best source of information is your instructor.
Basic Forms (Hyung):
The first three hyung were created by Master Hwan Kee Kim in the mid 1900s to introduce basic hyung movements as well as establish the importance of basics such as having a low stance, tight fist, and concentration. The first three are very nearly identical, and for very good reason.
