Keumgang Punch

( 금강지르기 keumgang-jireugi )

Difficulty Level:  Advanced      Technique: Strikes ( 지르기 jireugi )

This technique requires you to punch to the side and block upward (olgul makgi) at the same time. This strike is named after the Geumgang yeoksa statue (the Diamond Warrior, whose role was to protect the Buddhist temples during the period of the Silla dynasty in ancient Korea).

  • keumgang-ap-jireugi / 금강 앞지르기 / Keumgang Forward Punch
  • keumgang-yeop-jireugi / 금강 옆지르기 / Keumgang Side Punch

Breath control is also important to relax the body when not attacking; novice strikers often waste significant energy because they are tense at inappropriate times.

Most Kukkiwon 국기원 schools will use the poomse taegeuk whereas a few schools will use the poomse palgwe. The meanings, trigrams and symbols are shared by both poomse taegeuk and poomse palgwe, however the sequence of movements is different. The first 8 forms of the set of poomse differ from each other, whereas the last 9 forms (Black Belt forms) of the set are shared between the two sets. All students studying in World Taekwondo (WT) Kukkiwon style must learn these forms, or taegeuk, to advance to a higher belt level. There are eight taegeuk forms, each one similar to the previous one, but each time with more complicated techniques to display the students' mastery of the techniques learned during lessons, as well as the ability to interconnect these techniques.
