this form starts with a left palm strike and then a double punch. I can't remember what comes after that. It doesn't have the symmetry of the tae guek forms. i got a diagram of it online, and will start going over it soon even though it'll probably be a couple months before I test for green belt.
forms are OK when you're doing them in class. however, I think they're overrepresented in testing. especially when you begin one-steps, there are so f***ing many of them there's plenty of rote memorization there without throwing in forms. i have to have 3 forms, sam jang, hwa-rang, and the aforementioned creative form. also all of earth, a 3-part exercise which is all stances.
I got into trouble for no good reason after my orange belt test. my teacher decided to have me spar another orange belt who had even less control than me, which was saying a lot at the time.. also she was about 4 in. taller and 40 lb. heavier than me. we were point sparring and she was totally drilling me over & over, as in force inappropriate to point sparring. I went to jam her (without having been properly shown how to do it) and went in with my shoulder and knocked her flat. So I had a yellow stripe on my belt, altho I did go up in rank. I think my teacher realizes that was an experiment that failed. all she did was fall on her ass as far as I could see. Since then, before I got hurt, I have been sparring once a week, can't wait to get back to fight night.
My point is I could not be more thrilled that I will be testing out of the cycle.
