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 (Eui-Am teul). 

On the command to assume the ready position (jun-bi), move the left foot to B to form a Close Ready Stance type D toward D.  Remain in this close ready stance type 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 the section on essential points in performing patterns.
