Tae Geuk Ee Jang (2)
Students must learn this form for promotion to 7th Gup / Yellow Belt with Green Stripe:

TAE
 
The symbol of Tae Geuk Ee Jang is Tae meaning river which implies internal strength and external gentleness. After diligent practice of Tae Geuk 11 Jang, now you have a stronger base to develop yourself further. There are more front kicks and block-kick-punch combinations in Tae Geuk Ee Jang. Techniques must be performed gently but with dynamic inner power.
This form is for the 7th Gup.              
There are 18 movements.
 
The Tae Geuk poomse follow all eight trigrams with a pattern of three linear lines in plan view. An attempt 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.

Harmony is created by balance between two opposing forces.
