    Choong-Moo Tul (30 Movements)


    CHOONG-MOO is the pseudonym given to the great Admiral Yi Soon-Sin (Lee Dynasty). He is reputed to have invented the first armoured battleship (Kobukson) in 1592, said to be the precursor of the present day submarine.
    The reason why this pattern ends with a left hand attack is to symbolize his regrettable death, having no chance to show his unrestrained potential, checked by the forced reservation of his loyalty to the King.

    Free Sparring


    Free sparring is essentially open combat with controlled attacking and prohibition of attacking to certain vital spots.

    In a free sparring there is no prearranged mode between the players, and both are completely free to attack and defend with all available means and methods with only one exception: The attacker MUST STOP the attacking tool just before reaching the vital spot.

    Because Taekwon-Do is a lethal form of self-defence, the sparring rules (unlike those of other competitive sports) count only blows focused within two centimeters of a vital spot instead of counting the number of ineffective blows by the use of sheer brute strength. In sparring focused blows, speed, power, balance, strong and accurate blocking, skillful dodging and attitude are taken into consideration.

    Main points:

    1. Defense
    2. Instant Attack and Counter Attack
    3. Deception
    4. Selection of a proper target
    5. Direction of Attack and Defence
    6. Technique Experimentation
    7. Development of Tactic and Maneuver
    8. Dodging Technique
    9. Counter Attack
    10. Flying Multiple Techniques
    11. Position Change
