I understand that moving backwards whilst performing techniques and spinning are general concepts across many Forms and it is my hope that a fresh perspective on these concepts can help me figure out how to best approach Bunkai for "the final 1/3rd" of the Original Koryo Poomsae.
What I would like to discuss:
- do we move backwards for the sake of practical room, or is this a rare example of an apparent retreat that is anything but?
- are there some other examples of 360 degree spinning in Forms and applications that I haven't stumbled across and how have you interpreted these in your applied studies?
The current version of the final 1/3 sequence involves a carotid strike, grab into a lock, taking of the back (spin 360 degrees move) into a lock, then a sequence that attacks the adversary from behind putting them on their knees to a neck break.

PS: This is a shorter version of what I originally wanted post. I will clarify points as needed. Thanks! - Gerasimos
