Our forms are from the Chun-ji set , which is unusual for a WTF certified school. Back in
the late 1980's we switched masters from Yang Kwang Kim to Oh Jang Yoon for the
betterment of our club , and the advancement of Tae Kwon Do. We were allowed to keep
the forms of our previous master. They follow :
