What is TAEGEUK?

Taegeuk is the spirit of Tae Kwon Do. Each student must learn the idealisms of Taegeuk which are: Pacifism, Unity, Creative Spirit, Future Spirit and Eternity.
"Tae" means largeness and "Geuk" means eternity. After the world was produced male was produced from its energies, and in essence is the spirit of the sun and sky, while the female is the spirit of the moon and the earth. It is believed that the male and female are derived from Taegeuk.

Taegeuk Poomse follows the following theories:

1. The elements of metal, water, wood, fire and earth are believed to help each other to be produced; fire from wood, wood from water, water from metal, metal from earth, and earth from fire.

2. Fire melts metal, wood takes nourishment from the earth, water extinguishes fire, and metal cuts wood, and the earth blocks water. This is called the destructive theory.

3. The law of nature called "The Ying Yang Theory" which means "the negative and positive, and the male and female".

4. The great absolute theory.

5. The "Ohaeng Theory", the five primary elements.

6. Taegeuk Poomse follows the aforementioned theories and integrates them into the methods of attack, defence, forward movements and retreat, control of the speed of movements, and the intensity of the actions.
