Explanation of Forms
At our dojo we have started learning techniques by forms. This teaching style apparently was started in Europe, England I believe. But I have not been able to find out any information on it, nor a listing of the forms.
To clarify, each form is a single attack with all the techniques that can be used against it. For example: one form is Tski. Within that form we would learn Tski Iriminage, Tski Shionage etc.
I guess it is a way to organize the teaching. I have been finding this way of learning to be very useful, but I would like to read up on it more.
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
