What is Taekwon-Do all about

Toi-Gye is a difficult pattern to master as it contains many stance changes and re-chambering techniques. Try not to stamp when you are doing the 'W' shaped blocks, hold your fists at eye level and keep your hands up all the way through this phase of the pattern.


Grading Pattern - Toi-Gye

Toi Gye is the pen name of the noted scholar Yi Hwang (16th Century AD), an authority on neo-Confucianism. The 37 movements refer to his birthplace on 37 deg latitude and the diagram represents scholar.
