Poomsae Taegeuk - Chil Jang.  Movements - 25.

Meaning - Gan (Mountain).  Direction / Relation - North west / Youngest son.

Poomsae taegeuk chil jang: (seventh pattern).  The mountain is the symbol of strength, stability and changelessness.  Often viewed as a source of safety, fortresses and homes have always been built on mountains for centuries.  Taeguk chil jang represents this stability and fortitude in its solid stances and authoritative hand techniques.  Mountains will always look majestic, no matter the size.  This poomse should be performed with the feeling that all movements are this majestic and deserve to be praised.

We should stop when we should and go forward when we must.  Moving and stopping should match with time in order to achieve things.  A mountain never moves.  Man must learn the stability of a mountain.  We should not act in  a hasty manner.  Though fast actions seem fine, we should know when and where to stop.  Chil jang is the taeguk poomse for red belt (2nd Kup).
