Below you can find videos–from the front and back–of all of the patterns taught up through the black belt level at our school. Each video is demonstrated by our owner and chief instructor, Mr. Robert Powell. If you have questions about these patterns, feel free to ask Mr. Powell or one of our other instructors before or after your child’s next class.
One steps are the first combinations students learn at the RBBA. They are performed individually (one step #1 is separate from one step #2, and #3, and so on). Additionally, one steps can be performed from either side. One steps are first learned by yellow belts.
Advanced one steps build upon the one steps by adding more advanced techniques, particularly in terms of the kicks involved. Advanced yellow belts learn the advanced one steps, and practice them with a partner. As with one steps, the advanced one steps may be performed from either side.
Dan-Gun is the first pattern students learn at the RBBA. It is taught at the white and yellow belt level, and for our junior students, through the advanced yellow belt level.
Adults learn Do-San at the advanced yellow belt level, and junior students learn Do-San when they are awarded their 1st degree black belt.
Won-Hyo is taught at the green belt level to both junior and adult students.
Adult students learn Yul-Gok as part of their advanced green belt training. For juniors, Yul-Gok is taught at the black belt level.
Adult students learn Joong-Gun when they earn their blue belts. (Note that junior students do not learn Joong-Gun at this point, but instead learn Toi-Gye as blue belts.) Joong-Gun is taught to junior students at the black belt level.
Junior students learn Toi-Gye when they earn their blue belt. For adult students, Toi-Gye is taught at the advanced blue belt level.
At the red belt level, both junior and adult students learn Hwa-Rang.
Choong-Moo is an upper rank pattern learned by adults when they earn their red advanced belt, and by junior students when they earn their brown belts.
Kwang-Gae is the final pattern learned before students–both junior and adult–earn their black belts. It is taught at the black belt recommended level, when a student has earned their “skunk belt.”
