The white-sash exercises are not considered to be forms, since they have no defined meaning beyond the literal translation. Because of this, and their relative simplicity, many practitioners have taken to extending the exercises in different ways. The exercises could be modified in whatever way you choose, so naming particular ones as variations three, four and five, as is done here, is largely arbitrary.

The third variation commonly uses a high punch and a rising block.

The fifth variation typically uses a front snapping kick in place of the punch and a forearm guarding block. Note that since you need to land a kick, you step down immediately into the block, which may be confusing at first.

Korean Date

The date today is,

4350 년 8 월 4 일 (4350, Month 8 Day 4) (24 September 2017 CE)

This is the date according to the traditional lunisolar calendar of Korea. (Note that this is not an authoritative calculation; I’m still working on the details.) The years count back to the legendary founding of Korea by 단군 왕검 (Dan-gun Wanggeom).
