Taegeuk Eight

Patterns

Pal Jang (Earth) - Red Belt, Black Stripe
Taegeuk 8 Jang symbolizes the "Kon", one of the 8 divination signs, which represents "Yin" and earth, meaning the root and settlement and also the beginning and the end. This is the last of the 8 Taegeuk poomsaes, which may enable the trainees to undergo the Dan [black belt] promotion test. New movements are dubal-dangsong-bakkat-palmok-momtong-kodureo-bakkat-makki, twio-chagi, and palkup-dollyo-chigi. Emphasis must be laid on the accuracy of stepping and the difference between jumping-over kick and dubal-dangsong [alternate jumping kick in the air]. The 1st Kup-graders practice this poomsae.  

New Actions:

  • Dubal-dangsong-bakkat-palmok-momtong-kodureo-bakkat-makki

  • Twio-chagi

  • Palkup-dollyo-chigi
