Taegeuk One – IL Jang

 

Taegeuk one represents the symbol of ‘keon,’ one of the eight kwaes (divination signs), which means the heaven (yang) and the light; the sequence of movements of the poomsae are dedicated to them.  The rain and the light of the sun which is necessary for all that grows, both come from the heavens.  The heavens, therefore, are the symbol of creation, and the beginning of all things in the universe.  Accordingly, Taegeuk one represented by ‘keon,’ is the beginning of training in Taekwondo.
