The Basics

"The Basics are only a guiding principles to become a master
of Jangmookido, you have to find the Basics for yourself. 
But, people will do what is comfortable for them, so if
the instructor allow them to, they core pillars will collapse as
they gain more advanced techniques. That is why, you most
always return to the basics. This is what is important"
