Kicho Hyeong Sam Bu (also spelled Kicho Hyung Sam Bu) is the third of three, basic, 16-step, introductory form normally associated with Tang Soo Do but sometimes used as a beginner form in taekwondo schools. This form follows the same I-shaped pattern as Kicho Hyeong Il Bu. This form is very similar to the form Kibon Set, except:
- Kibon Set sometimes repeats the first four steps at the end of the pattern, for a total of 20 steps.
- Kibon Set usually blocks with the Outer Forearm (palm-down) rather than Inner Forearm (palm-up) at steps 2, 3, 9, and 11.
Variation: Sae Kye Hyeong Sam 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 Hyeong Sam Bu:
- The Horse Stance / Punch movements up-and-down the I-shape are replaced with Roundhouse Kicks instead.
