7. Kang-Yu

About This Book

 

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)

TAEKWONDO is the principleof the Nature

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.


<footnotes>

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.
2) 여기서 하늘과 땅이 일치한다는 것은, 기법으로서의 강유와 이것을 가능하게 하는 토대인 삼재가 일치함을 가리킨다. 그러므로 앞에서 말한 분별과 무분별의 조화와는 또 다르다.
3) 앞(7-10-3. 강유의 이로움)에서 이미 보았듯이 “기세와 균형이 어울려서 자세를 이루”는데(24장) 그 공통분모가 삼재 중 사람이다. 그러므로 여기서 ‘자세’는 곧 삼재 중 사람을 기법적으로 대표한다.
4) 이것은 하늘의 길에 따르는 자세와 기법의 요소들이다.
5) 『周易』, 01乾卦11, … 盈不可久也.
