Nai Han Chi Cho Dan - Learn Your Moo Do Kwan Taekwondo Patterns Here
This pattern is also known as Neh Bo Jin.
In the video you see Chris Sy perform the pattern slowly first so you can learn the moves. And then at full speed so you can get an idea of the timing of each section.
Chris performs the form in the traditional Moo do Kwan style. This means the stances are long, and the arms are extended on blocks and strikes to keep an attacker at a distance.
You learn this pattern at around 1st Kup stage (around black stripe or black belt).
There are 3 Nai Han Chi Hyung, Cho Dan, E Dan and Sam Dan.
Each form is meant to be performed in one breath and traditionally they were done one after the other. This is a tough ask!
This pattern is reported to be 900 years old.
The form is done in a straight line and when it is done fast but with great technical skill it's beautiful to watch.
We love learning these traditional patterns as they are steeped in history and a great challenge.
If you study tang soo do you will learn the Nai Han Chi series.
