Patterns

The belt colours used in Tae Kwon Do are symbolic and for each level there is a pattern or hyung to learn. Pattern practice enables the student to practice the fundamental movements of Tae Kwon Do in a meaningful series. Through the practice of patterns, a student gains technical expertise, controlled technique, strength, balance, timing and breath control.

The patterns used in our club are listed below. They are often called the “Chon-Ji” or “Chang Hon” set (Chang Hon is the pen name of General Choi Hong Hi) and originate in General Choi’s definitive text “Tae Kwon Do”.

Each pattern name links to Adobe PDF and Microsoft Word files containing a complete description of the movements. For more information on the patterns and how to read the descriptions, select the Background document. For a complete, indexed document containing background information and all pattern descriptions, select the Chon-Ji Pattern Set document.
