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 General Choi Hong Hi's Encyclopedia of Taekwon-Do, and presented 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
