    As of June I now know 18. Each one is more fun and more challenging in its own way. Really enjoyable! Forms do make up the "art" of martial arts.

    I learned the Poomsaes 1 through 12 and competed in tournaments. Since the very first time i stepped into a Dojang, I've been especially drawn to forms. I prefer doing those rather than sparring!

    I watched the Hyungs on youtube and found that they differ from Poomsae. In WTF, we learn Poomsae. But i think both styles are beautiful and portray the brilliant art of taekwondo.

    Poomsae names :

    Taegeuk Il Jang
    Taegeuk Yi Jang
    Taegeuk Sam Jang
    Taegeuk Sah Jang
    Taegeuk Oh Jang
    Taegeuk Yuk Jang
    Taegeuk Chil Jang
    Taegeuk Pal Jang

    Black belts:

    Why is your favourite Toi Gey? personally its one of the ones I dislike the most, from the coloured belt patterns my favourite in Won Hyo.

    Our club changed our poomsae patterns to be a lot more practical. The old ones were pretty boring.

    Taegeuk Il Jang
    Taegeuk Yi Jang
    Taegeuk Sam Jang

    Since I've re-started my TKD training after 10 years or so, I've just learned some "basic form" (Ki-cho-il, or something), which I haven't seen before. Not even sure it's part of WTF standard.

    Although I'm a white belt again, I'm practicing the three forms from time to time, both because I like it, and because hopefully I will need them pretty soon... :)

    I know 8 WTF Taeguk Patterns, and Old Koryo. Seeing that I got my red black belt the last day before we went on Christmas break (start back up next week) I do not know New Koryo (just plain Koryo on line). Hoping to start learning it next week. There are 4 other red blacks who know it so once the Master starts me on it, I can get help from the other red blacks.

    8 palgwes, 8 taeguks, Koryo, Keumgong, Taebek, and Pyong Ahn Il. Also the 1st Kibon which in our school is called Tiger 1.

    Seems like kibon are a lost art. I had to learn three of those to get my yellow belt.

    Yul Gok - that was the last pattern I learned to get my green belt back in 2009. I was going through some life dificulties and stopped training for a bit. But I have spent the last 2 years refocusing on my striking accuracy and power, stretches, balance, pushing weights, everything apart from knowing all the patterns I learned off the top of my head. Once I relearn the last 3 patterns above, then I know I will be a true Green belt and that is when I will try and find a local(ish) Dojang because I would love to pick up from where I left off at Green belt and carry on training up to Black belt. But I need to relearn the last 3 patterns. I don't want to enter a Dojang with my Green belt and not be a true green belt which in my head I won't be until I have got these patterns as good as I can get them! Hard work but it is a lot of fun - I'm 27 later this year and my goal is to attain my Black belt before turning 30 :)
