Temae Video

This is a collection of videos showing various temae being performed. These videos show the entire temae with only the natural sounds of the temae. Efforts have been made to make the performance as close to the “text book version” as possible. If you find any mistakes please add a comment to the vidoe. The exception are those that are labeled (live and unedited). They have been recorded and streamed live and may contain more mistakes.
