Po-Eun Hyung  (36 movements)


A note about stances:  In each of the stances in this form (that's right -- all of them) the chest will face N.
 
Direction Movement Stance Action
N Ready Feet together "look to heaven" (as in Gwang-Gae hyung)
W Left 90* L back Double forearm guarding blocks (middle level)
W Lift Rf -> L-knee Crane Push both fists upward, striking toward W
E without dropping the Rf R low side kick
E <Drop Rf> Horse R knifehand strike (L fist chambered at R hip)
E Horse L parallel punch
N Horse Scissor blocks (L low block, R middle block)
N Horse Scissor blocks (R low block, L middle block)

N Horse Chamber the R-fist to the R-hip and cover with the left open hand
N Horse R middle punch
(L open hand is palm down above the R-elbow, guarding)
N Horse Chamber the L fist to the L-hip and cover with the right open hand
E Horse Double parallel punches  <Yell!>
E Cross Lf over and in front of Rf, toward E L x'd over R R low hammerfist into the L open hand
(Note:  This could also serve as a low inverted forearm block)
E Step out with the Rf toward E R back Pole block
E Pull Lf -> Rf Feet together (crossing the right arm over the left...)
Double elbow strikes (these are done at shoulder level)
<Slowly & Exhaling>
W Lf toward W L back
<stomp!>
Simultaneously do:
L low forearm block (to W)
R high forearm block (to E)
W Cross Rf over and in front of Lf, toward W R x'd over L L low hammerfist into the R open hand
(Note:  This could also serve as a low inverted forearm block)
W Lf toward W L back Low ridgehand guarding blocks
(i.e. like "low knifehand guarding blocks", but the left hand is inverted.)

This marks the middle point of pattern Po-Eun.  From here the pattern repeats all of the motions listed above, but is mirrored for the opposite side.
That is, you finish the form by repeating all of the above motions, but do them to the opposite sides from which they were done before.  Accordingly, you must also do them with the opposite hands/feet that you used above.  So, the second half of the pattern will begin with:
 
Direction Movement Stance Action
E Right (180*) R back stance Double forearm guarding blocks. (middle level)

And the form will end with the following three movements:
 
Direction Movement Stance Action
E Rf toward E R back
<stomp!>
Simultaneously do:
R low forearm block (to E)
L high forearm block (to W)
E Cross Lf over and in front of Rf, toward E L x'd over R R low hammerfist into the L open hand
(Note:  This could also serve as a low inverted forearm block)
E Rf toward E R back Low ridgehand guarding blocks
(i.e. like "low knifehand guarding blocks", but the left hand is inverted.)
N Rf -> Lf Feet together Ready
