Eight Section Brocade and back injuries

I attempted TKD again yesterday, first time since October partly due to  self-inflicted back injury. Had brief chat about stances for launching front kicks and practising Eight Section Brocade which I have only ever practised from a you tube video. Expecially the 3rd movement – separating heaven and earth:

1. Pressing Up to the Heavens with Two Hands
2. Drawing the Bow and Letting the Arrow Fly
3. Separating Heaven and Earth
4. Wise Owl Gazes Backward
5. Big Bear Turns from Side to Side
6. Punching with an Angry Gaze
7. Touching the Toes then Bending Backward
8. Shaking the Body

Excellent resource from Mike Garofalo and youtube videos from Neigong.net channel
