Our TaeKwonDo program uses the Taeguek series of forms adopted by most modern TaeKwonDo dojang. Although our interpretation is a little different, emphasizing power and structure in every strike, one of our practitioners can easily move from school to school with little adjustment. This is not the only set we use, but it is mandatory.
We also believe in knowing where information comes from and what it means, especially when so many TaeKwonDo schools wish to distance themselves from their Koren roots.
Taeguek is symbolized by the eight trigrams surrounding the Taijitu. To greatly oversimplify, they represent the changing states of the universe as seen by the complete man. A master of these poomse will illustrate these concepts where they can be read in the demonstration of the form.
