Sam-Il


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 (Sam-il teul). 

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 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 D in a sliding motion to form a right L-stance toward D, while

            (half facing) a high block to D with the right double forearm.
