Geumgang Poomse

The word “Geumgang” originally meant being too strong to be broken.  In Buddhism, what can break off every agony of mind with the combination of wisdom and virtue is called Geumgang.

Geumgang-seok in Korean  means diamond  –  Geumgang in Taekwondo means movement based on spiritual strength that is as beautiful and majestic as the Diamond Mountains and hard and adamant as diamond.

The line and shape of the pattern corresponds to the Chinese Character for mountain.  The Korean people named the most beautiful mountain in the Korean Peninsula Geumgang-san, which is located in the Taebaek mountain range.  In the movement of Poomse Geumgang the sharp and endlessly changeable majestic spirit like that of the mountains should be displayed.
