Traditional Taekwondo Patterns - Pyun Ahn Sah Dan
Sah Dan is the fourth in the Pyun Ahn Series of tradtional patterns.
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 pattern 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.
This pattern starts in a similar way to E Dan but you do a knife hand (Sonnal) instead using a closed fist.
The shape of your arms is important after the side kicks. Make sure your shoulders are square when you land and your elbows are bent at 90'.
You need to learn this pattern at around 4th Kup stage (around blue belt).
