Patterns

Poomse : Taekwondo poomse is essentially a routine with a theme. It is a combination of techniques of block and attack performed consecutively while moving in certain directions.

There are 5 main reasons why we do patterns:

  1. Focus
  2. Coordination
  3. Inner Peace
  4. Breathing
  5. Practicing basic block/strikes

The World Tae Kwon Do Federation (WTF) has 8 colored belt forms and 9 black belt forms. The colored belt forms are all numbered from one to eight and are called Tae Geuk.

Tae Geuk: The origin of all universal things.

Tae: Bigness

Geuk: Eternity

“Tae Geuk represents the most profound oriental philosophy, from which Oriental philosophical views on the world, cosmos and life are derived. Tae Geuk has no form, no beginning, no ending, yet everything comes from Tae Geuk. It is something that contains the essence of everything.”
