6-11. Trinity of Kicking
There are the forms of Samjae again in each technique of Taekwondo. Thus, technique,
"though it has no shape, come to get its shape owing to change, and my
body, though it is only one, becomes three according to its use,"1)
so the substance of technique is one while its use becomes three.
Let me consider, for an example, the kicking, which is the typical technique
of Taekwondo. All kinds of kicking technique are reduced into one; to fold knee
up high and kick.2) That is, you should keep
your lower stomach low lifting your knee folded to the chest. By this motion
you should also have Samjae of your body correct to keep your upper body easily
straightened up. There are three ways to spread your leg from this pose for
a kick, which are Ap-chagi, Yop-chagi and Dollyo-chagi. Therefore, each of them
has different figure yet shares only one substance.
Every basic kick is nothing more than one same motion, thus nothing more than
is the Haneul as the indistinguishable entirety. On the other hand, figures
of Ap-chagi, Yop-chagi and Dollyo-chagi belong to the Tang as the distinguishable.
Where is the Saram? The foundation that enables this distinction is the Saram,
which is verily the mind of Taekwondo man.
1) 세 한얼 말씀 5. 세 나[三我], 我本無相, 因幻爲有, 我體無二, 隨用爲三.
2) "귀일(歸一)"은 「셋을 모은 글(會三經)」의 마지막 장 제목이다. 이는 천부경의 마지막 구절 "하나와
없음이 같은 것으로 끝남[一終無終一]"과 같은 의미이다.
