GREEN BELT: 5th GUP

The wind form encapsulates one of the most important concepts for the advancing martial artist. Wind can be a gentle breeze which caresses everything it touches, yet as it grows in intensity it gains power and destructive force. If it reaches hurricane force it destroys everything in its path.

The true martial artist understands that it is necessary to harness this paradoxical strength and weakness: the stronger and more powerful we become through our Taekwondo training, the more peaceful and calm we should become. This is the essence of the Tao - the Way.
