ITF PATTERN 8: HWA-RANG (Hwa-Rang Tul)

pacific international taekwondo brisbane

Taekwon-Do is a practical art; hence it can be learnt only from an instructor. Words, diagrams and videos can help only as a reference, and they cannot replace an instructor. Expert practical guidance from an instructor is invaluable.

“Certainly the most important asset any training hall can have is a good instructor. There is no substitute for a well-trained, intelligent, perceptive and patient instructor.” – Gen. Choi Hong Hi (Vol.6, p.17).

“Patterns are various fundamental movements, most of which represent either attack or defense techniques, set to a fixed and logical sequence.” – Gen. Choi Hong Hi (Vol.9, p.13)

Pattern Hwa-Rang (Hwa-Rang Tul)

“This pattern is practised by the 2nd grade holder and above.” – Gen. Choi Hong Hi (Vol.10, p.137)
