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 (Ju-Che teul).  

On the command to assume the ready position (jun-bi), move the left foot to B to form a Parallel Stance with a Twin Side Elbow toward D.  Remain in this parallel stance with a twin side elbow toward 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.  

1.   Move the left foot to B to form a sitting stance toward D, while executing
 
             (full facing) a parallel block with the inner forearms.

 2.   Standing up toward D, execute (full facing) a middle hooking block to D
 
             with the right palm.  

3.   Drop down to form a sitting stance toward D, while executing (full facing)
 
             a middle front punch to D with the left forefist.

             position of the hands as they were in move 4 above (a parallel block

         Perform these kicking techniques in a slow motion, and perform
 
             both techniques included in this move in a consecutive kicking motion.
