Nolan Tang Soo Do 14 Featuring GrandMaster Hwang Kee

Historical video showing and early rendition of Kicho Hyeong Il Bu (start at 17:20 minutes in the video)

Kicho Hyeong Il Bu (also spelled Kicho Hyung Il Bu) is the first of three basic, 16-step, introductory forms normally associated with Tang Soo Do but sometimes used as a beginner form in taekwondo schools. It is essentially identical to the form Kibon Hana, though some versions of Kibon Hana add a final four steps, repeating steps 1-4 at the conclusion of the pattern.

  • All of the stances in this version of the form are Front Stances (aka Long Stances).
  • All of the blocks are Low Blocks (aka Downward Blocks).
  • All of the punches are middle-height punches.

The "lines" of the form are an I-shape. You start by moving to the left, then back to the right. Then up the middle. Then to the right, and back to the left. Then back down the middle. There is also an advanced variation (see below) of this form called Geicho Hyung Il Bu Sang Gup that is used in Chun Kuk Do.

The Kicho Hyeong forms are generally attributed to Hwang Kee and were originally developed in 1947.

Variation: Sae Kye Hyeong Il Bu Edit

The Sae Kye forms are basic variations of the Kicho Hyeong that simply incorporate more kicking, but are otherwise nearly identical. In the case of Il Bu, the middle punches that go up-and-down the center of the I-shape (steps 6-8 and steps 14-16) are simply replaced with front kicks. Otherwise the two forms are the same.

Variation: Geicho Hyung Il Bu Sang Gup Edit

Giecho Hyung Il Bu Sang Gup01:44

Giecho Hyung Il Bu Sang Gup

In Chuck Norris's Chun Kuk Do, beginners first learn Kicho Hyeong Il Bu (spelled Geicho Hyung Il Bu) as above. Afterward, they learn an advanced variation called Geicho Hyung Il Bu Sang Gup.

In this variation, a Front Kick precedes each punch. So for example the form starts with a Low Block, Front Kick, Right Punch. Throughout the pattern, there is always a Front Kick before the Punch. Otherwise, the form is identical to the conventional Kicho Hyeong Il Bu form.
