Poomsae Taegeuk Sa Jang -- Thunder
The fourth aspect of Taegeuk is the principle of Jin. It represents thunder, which, with lightning, evokes fear and trembling but reminds us that danger, like a thunderstorm, passes as suddenly as it comes, leaving blue sky, sunshine, and rain freshened air in its wake. The practice of this form should help one act calmly and bravely in the face of loud and terrifying dangers, real or imagined, knowing that they, too, shall pass.
Testing for Blue Belt
Poomsae Taegeuk Oh Jang -- Wind
The fifth aspect of Taegeuk is the principle Seon. Seon symbolizes wind. Although there are horrible and destructive winds, such as the typhoon, hurricane and tornado, the wind's true nature is gentle but penetrating. Spring breezes softly caress the willow, but the willow does not stop the wind, rather, it bends willingly in it's path. Wind symbolizes humility and good natured actions.
