7-12. Mind of Kang-Yu
At the end of Yu you can use Kang-gi. And through Kang you can access Yu-gi. This is the figure of how Kang-gi and Yu-gi are unified distinctively. This distinctive unification is also connected by man's mind. How does the mind unify Kang-gi and Yu-gi?
Inherently man's mind distinguishes things by its will naturally, so the unification Kang-gi and Yu-gi, which is composed by man's mind, come to be distinctive. This is an aspect of <Oneness of Haneul and Tang in Saram>.1) In addition, as Kang and Yu are distinguished from each other they both belong to the category of Tang. They can be unified only because the subject that distinguishes both should be able to integrate the whole of them. It means, Haneul and Tang are to be unified in Saram.2)
In using the Yu-gi, thus in following the opponent, scatter the opponent and concentrate your technique in the accumulated strength and cowered body. Here, you should follow the principle of the technique through poses.3) This is the main key of how to join Yu-gi to Kang-gi. That is, you can use Kang-gi at the end of Yu. On the other hand, In using the Kang-technique, thus in concentrating techniques, secure the advantageous position4) for you and follow every subtle motions of the opponent continuously. Here, you should obey the current of <Heo-Sil> to catch out his weak points. This is the main key of how to join Kang-gi to Yu-gi. That is, you can access Yu-gi through Kang.
It is because It is because “the high shall be abased in Natrue”5) that Kang and Yu change at the extremities of hand and soft properties like above. TAEKWONDO is the principle of the Nature.
1) 여기서의 <Oneness of Haneul and Tang in Saram>은 강유의 무분별적인
일체와 그 속에서도 다시 강유의 분별이 있음, 이 양자가 모두 마음 속에서 조화됨을 가리킨다. 강유가 마음 속에서 하나됨을 가리키는 것은
아니다. 강유는 이미 땅의 요소로서 분별되는 것이니 이 양자가 마음 속에서 하나되더라도 하늘과 땅이 일치하는 것일 수는 없기 때문이다.
