Taekwondo Bible, Vol.2  
4. Tang(Earth)

About This Book

 

4-2. Technique

It is the way of Tang that makes Taekwondo identified as what it is, so the way of Tang includes firstly technique. Therefore, in Taekwondo the way of Tang is the central part of every technique. Technique will be completed by being able to have your opponent opposed to the world with your harmony in it. And there can be no more technique than that. Since it is nothing more than one Taekwondo is said to be Ilgiyae(One Skillart).

What is it that controls the way of Tang? It is Saram(Man), so the intentional subjective that controls the way of Tang; the technique. Thus it is man's mind that harmonizes techniques of Kang and Yu suppressing down the opponent. Its objective method is following the way of Haneul. Technique cannot defeat the opponent for itself. Hence it is said that man(Saram) controls the way of Tang. On the other hand, it is the way of Haneul to know what is right in control of the way of Tang. This is the essence of study of Taekwondo, which is verily <Oneness of Haneul and Tang in Saram>.

With this understanding we can know again that Samjae is one.
