Taekwondo Bible, Vol.2  
3. Haneul(Heaven)

About This Book

 

3-8-1. Basic Pose

The pose of Charyot is for both self-preparation and self-arrangement at the beginning and the end of training. Have two feet attached each other with yours hand attached to the side line of upright body. Straighten your waist up and loot right forth at the master or colleagues and arrange your breath. This is Charyot.

Jumbi-seogi is reorganization of breath in shift from pose of Charyot to actual training. Turn two tiptoes inside, open left foot apart by one-foot length to make a parallel stance, and lift two fists up to the chest and drop down to downer stomach in accordance with breathing reorganization. Of breathing, you should inhale deeply and exhale partly with your nose closing another part in your body. It is the beginning of Closing ki(Pyae-Ki).

Juchum-seogi begins from Jumbi-seogi and drops your downer stomach to the hight of knees, and then open left foot apart by double distance of shoulder, opening wide two knees out and closing two tiptoes inside so as to make two balnals(foot blades) paralleled. At this time you should straighten up your upper body to have each of head, chest and downer stomach as Haneul, Tang and Saram in its own proper position. It means, Haneul must be high, Tang low and Saram easy and comfortable between both. Then the upper body will be just like when you are standing with ease. This belongs to the pose of Haneul.
Abkubi-seogi is like the following: Drop your downer stomach from Jumbi-seogi first, and spread one leg back and outside supporting your trunk. At this point, you should not draw your trunk backward but stay with feel of moving forward instead. Then, you come to support your trunk with only a leg. This is the pose of Saram.

Dwitkubi-seogi is like the following: Drop your downer stomach from Jumbi-seogi first, and turn your waist to a side(right side). In this way, support the whole weight with only a leg, and push out the other foot(left foot) and put it slightly on the bottom. Then, your knee(left one) will be bent a little naturally. This is the pose of Tang.

There are basic kyorugi jasae(pose), yaksok kyorugi jasae, and jayu(free style) kyorugi jasae in Kyorugi pose.

There are etiquette, courage and knowledge in mental posture. Here, the knowledge refers to that about Taekwondo.

Etiquette has three requisites; first to consider what others want, second to be careful to do what you want to do, third to be skilled in manners to express your respect(or mind). Courage also has three requisites; first to be indignant at injustice, second to remove fear of your opponent, third to face up to the reality.1)

1) This corresponds to the step of mind of using technique. Therefore, from ancient times, virtuous warriors have been praised by word "courageous" rather than "strong".
