Taegeuk 8 Jang symbolizes the "Kon", one of the 8 divination signs, which represents
"Yin" and earth, meaning the root and settlement and also the beginning and the end. This
is the last of the 8 Taegeuk poomsaes, which may enable the trainees to undergo the Dan
[black belt] promotion test. New movements are dubal-dangsong-bakkat-palmok-momtong-kodureo-bakkat-makki,
twio-chagi, and palkup-dollyo-chigi. Emphasis must be laid on the accuracy of stepping and the difference
between jumping-over kick and dubal-dangsong [alternate jumping kick in the air]. The 1st
Kup-graders practice this poomsae.
