6-10-2. Point, Circle and Straight Line
In motion Samjae of Haneul, Tang and Saram appears as point, circle and straight
The essence of the figure of Bang lies in its construction by more than 4 points.1) When you are attacked at one of those 4 supporting points you have to seek another in circular movement along the figure of a ball's rolling. And then you should support it along the shortest way of movement of a straight line. Thus, you preserve the firmness of Bang, follow the way of circle in your control of its change and follow the straight line to speed up its change.
The meaning of Gak is gathering all the others on a point. This gathering all the others on a point follows a straight line sometimes and a circle another times. By the way, it will be better to gather also even a straight line and a circle on a point, for it fulfills more the genuine meaning of Gak. Here you come to get the technique of the spiral twist. To twist your punch in Jireugi, to twist your waist in kicks, and to twist your whole body resolving your armlocked arm; all of these can be its good examples.
As it was said that ¡°the three of Won(¡Û), Bang(¡à), Gak(¡â) are the storehouse of all kinds of forms,¡±2) all kinds of technique that follow the ways of Samjae embody those three forms through point, circle and straight line. Therefore, this knowledge leads you to the easy and sophisticated technique.
