 White Belt with Yellow Stripe:

Tae Geuk Il Jang (1)
Students must learn this form for promotion to 8th Gup / Yellow Belt:

KEON
 
The symbol for Tae geuk Il Jang is Keon meaning the sky or heaven, which is the base for the cosmos. It is where everything originates. Thus Tae geuk 11 Jang is the most basic form of Taekwondo.

This form consists of fundamental movements such as walking stance, front stance, low block, high block, inside block, middle punch, and front kick. It helps a practitioner build a solid base for more complex techniques.
This form is for the 8th Gup.
There are 18 Movements.

The Tae Geuk 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.
