Right Four-Direction Block


Step-by-Step Description of Movements:

The fundamental pattern exercise 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 fundamental pattern exercise that the student will perform (o-reun Sa-ju Mak-gi).

On the command to assume the ready position (jun-bi), move the left foot to B to form a Parallel Ready Stance toward D.  Remain in this parallel ready stance toward D until given the command to begin the fundamental pattern exercise.


When the command to begin the exercise is given (si-jak), perform the following individual movements in sequence.  The exercise should be performed according to the guidelines listed in the section on essential points in performing patterns.

1.   Move the right foot backward to C to form a left walking stance toward D, while executing
             (half facing) a low block to D with the left knifehand.

2.   Move the right foot forward to D to form a right walking stance toward D, while executing 
            (half facing) a middle side block to D with the right inner forearm.

3.   Pull the right foot toward the left foot.  Then, while pivoting on the ball of the left foot and turning
            counterclockwise, move
the right foot backward to A to form a left walking stance toward B,
            while executing (half facing) a low block to B with the left knifehand.

4.   Move the right foot forward to B to form a right walking stance toward B while executing 
            (half facing) a middle side block to B with the right inner forearm.

5.   Pull the right foot toward the left foot.  Then, while pivoting on the ball of the left foot and turning
            counterclockwise, move
the right foot backward to D to form a left walking stance toward C,
            while executing (half facing) a low block to C with the left knifehand.

6.   Move the right foot forward to C to form a right walking stance toward C, while executing 
            (half facing) a middle side block to C with the right inner forearm.

7.   Pull the right foot toward the left foot.  Then, while pivoting on the ball of the left foot and turning
             counterclockwise, move
the right foot backward to B to form a left walking stance toward A,
             while executing (half facing) a low block to A with the left knifehand.

8.   Move the right foot forward to A to form a right walking stance toward A, while executing 
             (half facing) a middle side block to A with the right inner forearm.

After completing the last movement, remain in the position of this last move until given the
command to return to the ready position (ba-ro).

END:
When the command to return to the ready position (ba-ro) is given, bring the right foot toward  
the left foot to form a parallel ready stance toward D.  Remain in this stance until given the
at-ease command (swi-eot).

  



Left Four-Direction Block


Step-by-Step Description of Movements:

The fundamental pattern exercise 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 fundamental pattern exercise that the student will perform (oen Sa-ju Mak-gi).

4.   Move the left foot forward to A to form a left walking stance toward A, while executing  
           (half facing) a middle side block to A with the left inner forearm.

5.   Pull the left foot toward the right foot.  Then, while pivoting on the ball of the right foot and  
            turning clockwise, move the left foot backward to D to form a right walking stance toward C,
            while executing (half facing) a low block to C with the right knifehand.

6.   Move the left foot forward to C to form a left walking stance toward C, while executing 
            (half facing) a middle side block to C with the left inner forearm.

7.   Pull the left foot toward the right foot.  Then, while pivoting on the ball of the right foot and
            turning clockwise, move the left foot backward to A to form a right walking stance toward B,
             while executing (half facing) a low block to B with the right knifehand.

8.   Move the left foot forward to B to form a left walking stance toward B, while executing  
            (half facing) a middle side block to B with the left inner forearm. 
After completing the  
            last movement, remain inthe position of this last move until given the command to return
            to the ready position (ba-ro).

END:
When the command to return to the ready position (ba-ro) is given, bring the left foot toward the
