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 (Jung-Geun teul).

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