The only way to remember them is just to keep practising them over and over until they sink in I am afraid.

not to worry danny! Happens to us all. rne is absolutely spot on - like everything else in life, practice makes perfect. The thing to remember when learning the various moves is to think about how they can be applied in a real-life situation; bear in mind, you're not training to pass the grading, but to defend yourself.

But practice, practice, practice! It will all fall into place.

Good luch and happy training.

The KATA Combo's? I can still remember mine at the age of 17 and I was six when I learnt them! I didn't practise them that much but the way I did the first one is by scorching blocks into my memory. Then I just took it like I was learning my spellings, without doing the movements (because I already knew the movements.)
Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there.

Why not try saying each part of the (outload at first) while you do it then when at home try to remember it and say it over and over again, thats what i do with difficult moves that I forget easily. One more thing just relax, you can't be expected to remember stuff after just learning it for two weeks, it takes my instructor loads of times before i actually remember the moves.
Smile, it makes your teeth feel special.
