One  of the most important aspects of martial art training is hyungs  (patterns). Hyungs, called kata or poom-se, are a series of defending  and attacking movements performed against imaginary opponents in a set  pattern. Through the practice of forms, students learn the application  of various techniques and classical combinations. Forms serve a  multi-dimensional purpose, aiding in the development of coordination,  balance, timing, breath control and rhythm. Rock Solid teaches Tang Soo  Do and Taekwondo forms.

Basic patterns consist of a few blocks  and strikes combined with little in the way of footwork. This early  integration of basic techniques helps the student develop rhythm, power,  and control. As the student progresses through the ranks, the hyungs  become increasingly complex. Footwork and body movement intensify until  movement becomes more natural and the student's techniques become  fluid.   

The Korean words Pyung Ahn, translated mean:
Pyung = Well Balanced, Calm, Peaceful Ahn = Safe Comfortable, Secure
