BROWN BELT: 3rd GUP

Mountains are the most majestic expressions of our natural environment, and they clearly represent permanence, wisdom, strength, spirit, stability and solidity.

Once again, we are faced with a paradox, for Tae Geuk Chil Jang requires the demonstration of all these characteristics - particularly stability - in the long, low and powerful forward stances, and even in the graceful but seemingly weak and unstable cross stance and tiger stance.

Chil Jang is a difficult form which requires mental and physical effort and determination.
