HWA RANG KWAN

Hwa Rang Kwan

ORANGE BELT: 7th GUP

Ri, the symbol for the third Tae Geuk form, means fire, sun and light. Literally, the sun contains immense energy, and of course intensity - one of the key components of Taekwondo practice.

Metaphorically, fire represents the passion of a martial artist at this advanced beginner stage. There are block/punch and block/kick combinations that require bursts of energy and coordination as defense becomes counter-attack.
