Share:

Difficulty Level:  Intermediate Level      Technique: Stance ( 서기 sogi )

This stance is specifically focused on shifting weight to the back leg, as it offers much more control, and makes it easier to kick off the front leg. To perform this stance, the body faces to the side, with the front foot facing forward and the front leg bent. The back leg is bent slightly and the foot is turned outwards perpendicular to the front foot making the letter "L" for this stance. When learning this stance, it is helpful to use a mirror. Align your feet as stated above - some styles require that your body is turned so only your front shoulder is visible through the mirror. Since there is almost no weight on the front leg, it can be swept without affecting the practitioner's overall balance. The weight distribution of this stance is 30% front and 70% at the back. This stance should be 3 foot-length from origin. Align the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle of back leg into a straight line. In International Taekwondo Federation (ITF), this stance is called a "L Stance". Also in ITF Style, there is a variant of this stance called Gojung Sogi or Fixed Stance which is One foot length longer, the weight distribution is 50-50. So when performing this stance one should just be able to see the toes of one's back foot over the knee.

    Information for Back Stance ( 뒷굽이 dwi kubi )

    Stance is introduced in the following patterns:

    TAEGEUK #:  3 4 5 6 7 8

    PALGWE #:  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

    BLACK BELT:  Koryo (1st Dan) Keumgang (2nd Dan) Taebaek (3rd Dan)

    Poomse is the foundation for the teaching of taekwondo. A poomse or form is a detailed pattern of defense-and-attack motions and techniques used in traditional martial arts. Poomse is useful in developing proper kinetics, mental and physical fortitude.

    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.
