Palgwe Ea Jang

Today, let's look at the philosophy behind Palgwe Ea Jang. This form is associated with the trigram symbol ofTae. Taeteaches us to be of a clear and positive frame of mind. it represents joy and lake. Yes, lake - a confined body of water. In the depths of a lake, we can find beauty and mystery - joy.  There are treasures to be found. A lake has limitations in its confinement. We too have limitations. We can feel joy in knowing this and taking control of our own future. We can overcome our limitations and live up to our fullest potential.

Today, I would like to tell you the meaning behind the forms we learn. The Korean term for form isPoomse. EachPoomsehas a specific meaning and purpose. The overall purpose is to practice kicking and punching in a simulated defense situation. I'll start with thePalgwes, yellow belt in particular. There are eightPalgweforms,Pal(eight) andGwe(trigrams). The trigram represents the fundamental principles of reality, for example: wind, water and fire.  I will try to have a new post up weekly!
