Most patterns may be performed using four different methods: traditional, quick, power, and concentration. Each method has its own specific purpose.
- Traditional. This is the normal method to perform a pattern. It is the way patterns will be performed during a promotion testing or in competition. This method integrates the other three methods into a smooth, rhythmic presentation where each step flows gracefully into the next in an orderly fashion.
- Quick. To perform a pattern using the quick method, complete it as fast as you can while still maintaining proper form and power. Each step is done in a quick, snappy fashion.
- Power. To perform a pattern using the power method, perform each movement and technique using maximum power while maintaining proper form. Each step should still be performed smoothly and in an orderly fashion.
- Concentration. To perform a pattern using the concentration method, perform each movement and technique slowly and deliberately with maximum concentration, while maintaining proper form. Each movement should be performed smoothly and in an orderly fashion but the body is kept under maximum tension. Each movement is performed as if your body was refusing to do the movement and you must fight against it to complete the movement. This method is mentally and physically exhausting.
