The Sang Gup variation follows the same I-shaped pattern as the conventional Kicho Hyeong Ee Bu form

The form Geicho Hung Yi Bu Sang Gup is an advanced variation of the form Geicho Hyeong Yi Bu (also called Kicho Hyeong Ee Bu) that's used in Chuck Norris's Chun Kuk Do. Essentially, it's like a conventional Kicho Hyeong Ee Bu in that it follows the conventional I-shaped lines (embusen). The main difference is that up-and-down the center of the I, the individual movements have been placed with double-movements. For example:

  • In the conventional Kicho Hyeong Ee Bu, the center-line of the I-shape is performed using single High Blocks
  • In this variation, the High Blocks are replaced with different kinds of blocks (Inside, then High, then Outside), and each block is also accompanied by a Punch.

In addition, the conventional Kicho Hyeong Ee Bu uses only Front Stances (aka Long Stances). This advanced variation supplements the Front Stance with Back Stances. In fact, the student frequently must transition between Back Stances and Front Stances as they move up and down the center of the I-shape.

Also, the Punches along the top and bottom of the I-shape have also been supplemented with Front Kicks prior to each punch.

As compared to many other "beginner" forms, this form is really quite complex. This is the fourth of five beginner forms used in Chun Kuk Do:
