Do-San is an ITF-style teul (form). It has 24 movements and is diagrammed as a capital I.

Ahn Chang-ho (November 9, 1878 - March 10, 1938) was a Korean independence activist and one of the early leaders of the Korean-American immigrant community in the United States. He is also referred to as his pen name Dosan (도산; 島山 [tosʰan]). He established the Shinminhoe (New Korea Society) when he returned to Korea from the US in 1907. It was the most important organization to fight the Japanese occupation of Korea. He established the Young Korean Academy (흥사단; 興士團) in San Francisco in 1913 and was a key member in the founding of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea in Shanghai in 1919. Ahn is one of two men believed to have written the lyrics of the Aegukga, the South Korean national anthem. Besides his work for the Independence Movement, Dosan wanted to reform the Korean people's character and the entire social system of Korea. Educational reform and modernizing schools were two key efforts of Dosan. 

Ahn was also the father of Hollywood actor Philip Ahn, well-known for his portrayal as Master Kan in the David Carradine television series Kung Fu.

VideosEdit

ITF Taekwon-do forms often come in two styles: Sine Wave and non-Sine Wave. In either case, the basic movements are the same. The difference is in the "up and down" motion that's used (or not), the rhythm of the movements, and the breathing. See main article Sine Wave for additional details.
