LEARN THE NOTATION

Learning the Temporal Notation System. It's an intuitive easy-to-use notation system that designates targets based on the points of a clock. If you understand "1-o-clock", then you understand where to strike. Read over the notation and get a firm understanding. You can download the Notation Worksheets as PDF files.

Time needed: 5 min

SINGLE FORMS

Once you understand the notation, you can begin practicing anywhere in the world as long as you have a stick or a saber. These are simple forms that have been on the internet for over a decade and provide you with proper postures on how to strike and move. These forms combine a number of moves to help you practice your strikes.
