The Original Forms of Taekwondo article by Oerjan Nilsen. Hyung Ja Won. I will double check my refernce materal at home, but I believe this is the Okinawan/Japanese Jion (also spelled Jaon) kata. David Hacker
The Original Forms of Taekwondo article by Oerjan Nilsen. Hyung Ja Won. I double checked my reference materal at home, the closest I found was Ja on, but I still believe this is the Okinawan/Japanese Jion (also spelled Jaon) kata. David Hacker
I second the thought of Ja on. There wasn't a consistent naming system in place as the Chul gi/Naebojin names demonstrate. Ja on is included in Chung do Kwan TKD as "Black Belt Korean Karate" by Son and Clark shows. It is still used, I practice Chung Do Kwan and use the forms shown by the Son and Clark (both books). It is indeed a version of Jion as David thought.
I have checked around and Ja Won Hyung = Jion Kata seems to be the most probable explanation. Jion Kata does show up in a future part of the series so either way Jion will be explored in the series:) All though I want to think the Ja Won Hyung is Ja Un or Jion Kata it would be even better if we saw the form in actual use or a book where it was written that way so we could see if this was the case. I did make an educated guess if you can call it that with Balhan Dae so I will certainly include the probability of Ja Won Hyung = Jion Kata in the series.
I thank you both for your contribution (and Master Weiss in another thread for his comment on Hwarang Hyung ). It is very motivating to see that the magazine and the forum can work together so the sharing of knowledge gets better and better.
