One-Step Questions for Saturday, 29th April - 25 weeks to the October 2017 Pre-Test

One-Step Questions for Saturday, 29 April - 25 weeks to the October 2017 Pre-Test

1. I practiced my 6 Palchugi forms plus Taeguek Ee, Sah and Yuk Jang for 3 sessions this week. (You can use the Palchugi forms to warm up before getting into the nitty gritty on your Taeguek forms.)

If you are having trouble with memorization - try using the Forms Cards which can be found at this link:

2. I have mentally reviewed my forms 3 times in the past week. You can say the forms out loud, write them down or walk through them in your head.

Those first two steps are a big indicator of who is a serious candidate.

3. I have all 3 curriculum forms (Taeguek Ee, Sah and Yuk Jang) memorized - meaning you can do the form on the floor alone without any long memory pauses and without any prompts.  (Test yourself by trying to do your forms facing a different direction!)

4.  I have Taeguek Ee Jang checked off.

5.  I have Taeguek Sah Jang checked off.
6. I have done 15 perfect pushups 3 times in the past week. (This is the same number you need to do in order to get a form checked off.)

7. I have done 40 round kicks on the bag 3 times this week.

8. I have done 7 crunches 5 ways for a total of 35 good crunches with pauses at the top, 3 times in the past week.

See this link on how to do Crunches 5 Ways:

9. I have done 2 runs outside of class time in the past week.

10. I have video taped myself doing Taeguek Ee, Sah and Yuk Jang and have viewed those tapes to see what I need to work on. Check your shoulders, foot placement, stances, hands, chambers, timing, etc.

See this link for how to get a Taeguek Form checked off - print the document off and add it to your binder.

11. I have declared my weapon choice for Black Belt.

12. I have written down one self-defense attack and counter combinations in my binder. 

13.  I created a "game plan" for each day I was at the dojo this week to make sure I was making progress on my One-Step questions this week.
