Moving Forms

This online notebook is not an instruction manual, and I don’t offer it as any kind of authoritative source. I am not an instructor, let alone a master. I use this site as a tool in support of my own practice and study. For the forms below, which comprise my repertoire, I collect the video links that I find useful in honing and refreshing the forms. I also use the notebook for ready access to the lists I have compiled of the names of the movements in each form.
