Kibone il

(Form #1)

Kibone il is the first form that Supreme Grandmaster Lee taught us at the San Pedro YMCA. Ki-bone means beginner forms and il is level #1 Supreme Grandmaster Nam Suk Lee did not speak english and I personally do not understand if these 5 forms are warm up forms or if these were the official forms they taught when they were doing this in 1945. Kibone il and Kibone E (level #1 & #2) are exactly the same except the frst form you are punching the solar plex and the 2nd form is punching to the face. There is only one stance called the mountain climber stance. The mountain climber stance is one leg is forward and bent at the knee and the back leg is locked out. The feet should be about shoulder width apart. All of Supreme Grandmaster Lee forms moved with a straight step. The only time his forms moved with the "C" step was the 2nd degree Black Belt form.

** Remember same hand forward same leg forward, Also turn the same way as your hand. (Right hand out turn to the right, Left hand out turn to the left). **
