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.

Trunk Push Low Block
( 아래 헤쳐막기 arae hecho makgi )
Difficulty Level: Intermediate Technique: Blocks ( 막기 makgi )
This technique requires both forearms to be bent and raised to shoulder height level to form a cross. Then snap both arms straight down like a low block ( 아래막기 arae makgi ) to the right and left sides. This technique blocks any incoming low kicks or low strikes to the side. Remember with both hands down that the upper section is vulnerable to attacks.
