Tong-Il


Step-by-Step Description of Movements:
 

The pattern begins when the instructor commands the student to come to attention (cha-ryeot).  When given this command, assume an Attention Stance on the X on the AB line, facing D.  This is followed by the instructor stating the pattern that the student will perform (Tong-il teul).  On the command to assume the ready position (jun-bi), move the left foot to B to form a Parallel Stance with an Overlapped Backhand toward D.  Remain in this parallel stance with an overlapped backhand toward D until  given the command to begin the pattern.

When the command to begin the pattern is given (si-jak), perform the following individual movements in sequence. The
pattern should be performed according to the Guidelines listed in General Choi Hong Hi's Encyclopedia of Taekwon-Do, and presented in the section on essential points in performing patterns.
