Promotion from one geup to the next can proceed rapidly in some schools, since schools often allow geup promotions every two, three, or four months. Students of geup rank learn the most basic techniques first, and then move on to more advanced techniques as they approach first dan. Many of the older and more traditional schools often take longer to allow students to test for higher ranks than newer, more contemporary schools, as they may not have the required testing intervals.

Difficulty Level: Intermediate Technique: Blocks ( 막기 makgi )
This technique is used when the hands are crossed and pushed apart to loosen the opponents grip while they are trying to grab you with two hands. The Outside Wrist Double Block ( 바깥팔목 헤쳐막기 bakkat palmok hecho makgi ) is usually followed by grabbing the opponents neck or head and pulling down to attack with the knee. The two fists are as high as shoulder level. Don't let your fists extend outside the body lines. This move is first introduced in Taegeuk #7.
