The majority of forms start from the ready stance (shoombi Soki). When bowing at the end of the form (and the beginning when performing solo), the left foot always comes in for the bow, then back out unless otherwise specified.

Concentration: One's eyes should intently view the imaginary opponent; the head should turn sharply to look before turning the body. The student should perform forms with serious commitment and work diligently towards executing proper technique and stance.
Etiquette: Forms are carefully taught to deserving students with their instructors' permission. A student is expected to study each form and develop a proficient skills level prior to receiving their next form. to ask for forms nor are they allowed to learn forms from written sheets or from their peers. Forms are only learned by permission.
