PRACTICE AT HOME
Warmup before training
Mooshim 1-9 is the first form (poomse) you will learn at the Asian Arts Center Taekwondo School
Innae means patience. You must have patience with yourself. Allow yourself to be a beginner and go slowly as you learn. You will get better over time and will become excellent in the end!
15 minute warmup including Mooshim and Innae
