Kup Grade Blue Belt Advancing to Brown Belt

WHEN PERFORMING THE POOMSAE YOU WILL BE GRADED ON:


1. Posture: Student must have their body weight correctly distributed during each different stance and
during footwork. Each technique must be correctly aligned. Stance, direction, etc. The Head must
not face down, the eyes must remain open!
2. Realism: Taekwondo patterns are the learning ground for real combat. As such, every technique
must display the requisite speed, power and firmness to be realistically used as an attack or defense
move.
3. Spirit: A competitors presence on the mat must be as credible as his technique. Self-belief,
confidence in abilities, and intention to perform to a personal best are tangible virtues considered
indispensable in Taekwondo practitioners. Learn what each Poomsae represents and act accordingly!
4. Decorum: Proper manners must be displayed when interacting with the Masters, Sabum Nim or
Judges directly before and after the Poomsae (Bowing!). Respect must also be extended to rival
competitors, schools and other officials (more Bowing!). This is highly prized at SCREAMING
EAGLES MARTIAL ARTS.
5. Form: General qualities that we look for in any Taekwondo Student include proper breathing
technique and body control. The diaphragm must be engaged in deep breathing; shallow deep
breathing concentrated in the upper abdomen results in raised shoulders and stressed muscles. The
muscles of the body should be lightly relaxed in order to perform the pattern with fluidity, speed and
grace. Muscles should only be tensed at the moment of imaginary impact in order to commute
maximum power to any individual Taekwondo technique.

TAEGEUK OH JANG:

(5th Poomsae) This Poomsae represents WIND. The IChing promotes that wind is a gentle force, but can sometimes be furious, destroying
everything in its path. As such, it is intended that this Poomsae is performed like the wind,
gently, but knowing the ability of mass destruction with a single movement. The performer
and audience should be made aware of the duality of this form.
