Pattern Diagram

4d Thrust

Right Four-Direction Thrust

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 Ttul-gi).

On the command to assume the ready position (jun-bi), move the left foot to B to form a Close Ready Stance type C toward D.  Remain in this close ready stance type C 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.
  Pivoting on the ball of the left foot and turning counterclockwise, move the right foot to D 
 
            in a sliding motion to form a right L-stance toward C, while thrusting (half facing)
            to D with the right side  elbow.
         Perform this move in a sliding motion.

2.  Pivoting on the ball of the left foot and turning counterclockwise, move the right foot to B  
            in a sliding motion 
to form a right L-stance toward A, while thrusting (half facing)
            to B with the right side elbow.
         Perform this move in a sliding motion.

3.  Pivoting on the ball of the left foot and turning counterclockwise, move the right foot to C  
            in a sliding motion 
 to form a right L-stance toward D, while thrusting (half facing) 
            to C with the right side elbow.
         Perform this move in a sliding motion.

4.  Pivoting on the ball of the left foot and turning counterclockwise, move the right foot to A   
            in a sliding motion to
form a right L-stance toward B, while thrusting (half facing)
            to A with the right side elbow.
         Perform this move in a sliding motion. 

After completing the last movement, remain in 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 to the left foot
to form a close ready stance type C toward D.  Remain in this stance until given
the at-ease command (
swi-eot).
