Tae-geuk Poomse #8 (Tae-Geuk Pahl-Jang, 1st Gup)

Symbol is Kohn, meaning The Earth

The Earth is the foundation of the growth of all life. It is the beginning of the life and all lives must return where they began. Tae-Geuk Pahl-Jang is the last poomse before becoming a black belt. The end means a new beginning. Perfection of all basic TaeKwonDo and maturity of character is the goal at this stage. Pride, confidence, and dignity were the results of the training. Honesty and humbleness are the prerequisites of the black belt stage. It is required to perfect from Tae-Geuk Il-Gang (Poomse #1) to Tae-Geuk Pahl-Gang (Poomse #8) to be eligible to apply for the 1st Dan/Poom Black Belt Test. The new techniques are: Bicycle front kick, elbow strike, and single mountain block. Accurate footwork is also required in combinations.
