Taegeuk Eight – Pal Jang

 

Taegeuk eight symbolises the ‘kon,’ which represents ‘yin’ (c.f. Taegeuk 1) and Earth, meaning the source of all life, the root and settlement, and also the beginning and end.  Everything arises from the Earth, receiving its nourishment and energy.  The creative power of the heavens is embodied in the Earth.  Taegeuk eight is the last pattern a student learns on the way to becoming a black belt.  These basic patterns are revisited, and practiced again and again, until they are polished to perfection.
