Blue Belt: Represents a plant as it reaches for the sky.

Choong-Gun (32) Is named after the patriot Ahn Choong-Gun, who assassinated Hiro-Bumi Ito, the first Japanese Governor-general of Korea, known as the man who played the leading part in the Korea-Japan merger.  The 32 moves represent Mr. Ahn’s age when he was executed at Lui-Shung prison (1910).

Training Secrets of Taekwondo:

  1. Become familiar with the correct angle and distance for attack and defense.
  2. Keep both the arms and legs bent slightly while the movement is in motion.

Toi-Gye (37) Is the pen name of the noted scholar Yi Hwang (16th Century), an authority on neo-Confucianism.  The 37 moves refer to his birthplace on the 37° latitude, and the diagram, plus over minus (±), represents “scholar.”

The 9 points to be observed while performing forms:

  1. Accuracy – a pattern should begin and end on the same spot.
  2. Correct posture and facing should be maintained at all times.
  3. The muscles of the body should be tensed and relaxed at the proper moments.
