Taegeuk Il Jang Illustrated Tae kwon do Forms

Il Jang

The taegeuk poomse are meant to follow all eight trigrams and with a pattern of three linear lines in plan view. The attempt is made to equate each form with one of the eight primary trigrams as a way to underpin the philosophy of tae kwon do to forms practice.

The connection between the movements and the trigrams is considered tenuous by many.

The tae geuk forms were meant to replace the palgwe, but both are still widely used. Personal preference is really the only standard to use when deciding which set is better.

Harmony is created by balance between two opposing forces.
