Yaksok kyorugi is patternized. Why should we practice this patternized attack and defence? For everybody attacks and defenses with patternized motion. It is not easy, or rather, very difficult to move unpatternized way. Even in Jayu Kyorugi(free style) everyone comes to move patternized way. Some people or many people sometimes get out of this patternized way. In that case, they don't move out of the patternized way but they fail to control their motion.
