What is the meaning of Tae Keuk Pahl Jahng, the high red belt poomse?

  • Tae Keuk Pahl Jahng means "Earth" - the end. Performing this poomse, you should know that this is the last Tae Keuk poomse. Because the Tae Keuk poomses are considered to be a circle, you never really reach the end. So, this poomse is not just the last, but also the first, the second, the third, and so on.
