I must apologize for my absence! After a hectic school year, with my third child graduating from high school (one to go!), summer is here and I have time now to write! I will resume with Palgwe Sam Jang.
The meaning of Palgwe Sam Jang is fire. This is from the Korean word "Ri". You should be expressing passion and excitement in practicing Tae Kwon Do. Passion for knowledge, and excitement for learning. Building upon Palgwe Il Jang and Ea Jang, you can add more power and speed to your performance. Like a controlled burn, you should practice this form with speed and strength without losing control. Fire contains a lot of energy, and so should you! Fire can be helpful, for survival, or catastrophic. Control the fire when you perform this form, with some outbursts of energy. On your journey to black belt, keep the fire burning in your thirst for knowledge!
