The Basics

Learn Individual Techniques first;
not combinations or full forms

Many Longstaff students looking on trainings clips that teach a full combo or a form. The matrial does not actually break down each individual technique. This will hamper your excellence in your technique and training ability.  It is important to learn piece by piece. Once you learn all individual techniques; you can then string together amazing combinations and forms. Beginners in Jangmookido starting with  Kibondonjak, the basics. The most  important part of the basic educations are posture, right/left side long rod knowledge, clean jangbong (attacks and spins) technology and the disciplined use of Jangmookido is very important.

Pattern / Form

Do you want to be able to move like a jangbong martial artist master...? 
Stupid question, of course you want it...! 

Then you should think about;  Jangbong is an extension of your body, an exended arm. When you do a figure 8 spin and combo with a front strike; your entire body flows with the Jangbong, not against it. This will create beautiful flowing combinations and impressive abilities. To become one with the Jangbong, we practice something we call Hyung   pattern/form. There are eight Hyungs, from white to black belt and this set of Hyungs we call...
