At this point in the Chen short form journey I’ve started to accumulate maybe half a dozen martial applications that I will be held accountable for. So, taking a page from my Tae Kwon Do days, I plan to break them down into mini solo katas or one-steps. While you do have to rely on visualization, doing this still allows for repeated solo practice outside of school. This is even more important considering I only make it to the school once each month! I did this while studying Chin Na at the last kung fu school and it was very helpful for test preparation.
In the next few weeks expect me to start posting each part of the short form and the related martial applications. On that note, I ran across this one-step video on YouTuber. At a glance it looks like this particular school may be integrating a little Hapkido into their Tae Kwon Do.
