What is Taekwon-Do all about

At this stage of your colour belt you should be proficient at all of the previous patterns and techniques learned. Here are a few pointers: Ensure your foot shape is correct on all of your kicks. Look at the dimensions of your stances in the entire colour belt pattern set; they should all be correct without having to think about it. Know each pattern by number as the examiner may call out 3 sets of numbers and expect you to perform them without hesitation. An old trick is to be asked to do all of the odd numbered patterns or patterns in “number of moves” order etc so be prepared. Ensure you are fit in the cardiovascular sense. You may be asked to undertake a physical exercise before doing patterns during the Black Belt grading. If you are not fit, fatigue will show in your legs, your stances will be poor and the examiner will spot it!


Grading Pattern - Choong-Moo

Choong Moo was the name given to the great Admiral Yi Sun Sin of the Yi dynasty. He was reputed to have invented the first armoured battleship (kobukson), believed to be the precursor to the present day submarine, in 1592 AD. The reason this pattern ends in a left attack is to symbolise his regrettable death having no chance to show his unrestrained potential, checked by the forced reservation of his loyalty to the King.
