Significance of Poomsae


The poomsae is a series of movements for offense and defense techniques which can be practiced and trained, even without presence of an instructor, in accordance with the fixed patterns. Therefore, the poomsae has the merits, by its practice, to make the trainee enhance the Kyorugi techniques and applied techniques including special techniques which can hardly be practiced by the training of each separate basic movement alone.

During the practice, the following must be taken into consideration :

1. ⓐ The eyes

2. ⓑ Movement of the center of balance

3. ⓒ Low or high speed

4. ⓓ Strong or weak force

5. ⓔ Respiration Training of Poomsae
