Little Dragons Routine
Start in Chunbi.
Right leg back into guarding stance (Kihap)
On the instruction to begin, students perform:
High Punch (left), Middle Punch (right), High Palm (left), Middle Palm (right), then execute a
right Front Snap Kick (Kihap), returning to guarding stance with the right leg back.
Then, change stance (my students will say “change legs” when then do this).
High Punch (right), Middle Punch (left), High Palm (right), Middle Palm (left), then execute a
left Front Snap Kick (Kihap), returning to guarding stance with the left leg back.
Hold up both palms shouting “stop stand back, I’m a little dragon.”
Judges are instructed to take the accuracy of the routine into consideration first, before the
loudness or overall performance of the student. i.e. did they get their lefts and rights correct
and do the routine correctly.
