I'm going to be showing you guys and teaching you guys the horse stance drill. First, let's start from the beginning. We're going to be doing a chariot. A chariot means feet together and hands together like this.

Now we're going to practice choonbi. Choonbi means 'ready'. So we're going to go one, open your left leg, shoulders apart, two, and three. One more time. One, two, three and we're going to kiyap, this way. Now we're going to go to our horse stance drill. I like to put my hands X, spread your legs a little more apart, bend your knees, keep your back straight, head up, fist on side.

Now we're going to start with the left punch. I'm going to show you a mirror image, so I am going to punch with my right hand, but to you, it will be your left hand. So I'm going to punch with the left hand now. Now we could do two punch. I like to do a last one kiyap, so it's going to go like this. Three punches, and the last one kiyap.

Now every school has a different basic horse stance form. I'd like to show you mine. So I'm going to put my arms up and we're going to first do a down block technique. One. Now I like to put my arms up to the other side, two. The next technique is called an inside block. Three, four. Now I'm going to show you a face block. Five, six. Now, seven, we're going to punch, eight, we're going to punch, and only eight steps.

One more time, a little faster. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Paro, Paro means 'come back'. Then, chariot. And kyong ne means 'bow'. Kyong ne. And that's how we do our basic horse stance drill technique in Taekwondo.
