Share:

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

Stance is performed by standing with the inner edge of both feet about one foot-length apart and the toes are facing straight forward. The legs should be straight, eyes look forward, and the arms position will depend on the technique being used. In poomse competition, some deduction factors are the foot-length is too narrow or too wide.

Practitioners must have their body weight correctly distributed during each different stance and during footwork. Each technique must be correctly aligned. Every technique must display the requisite speed, power and firmness to be realistically used as an attack or defense move.

Information for Parallel Stance ( 나란히서기 naranhi sogi )

Stance is introduced in the following patterns:

TAEGEUK:  6

PALGWE:  4

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.
