Instructions for Taekwondo Palgwe Form 8 (Pal Jang)

Here are written and video instructions for Taekwondo Palgwe Form 8 (Pal Jang). Step-by-step written instructions for this form are on the bottom of the page.

Palgwe color belt forms are not part of the official curriculum for WTF or ITF Taekwondo schools. Taekwondo Palgwe forms were used before the WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) switched to Taegeuk forms. Nevertheless, Palgwe is still used at many Taekwondo schools. However, please be aware that while Palgwe forms have similar names to the color belt WTF Taegeuk forms (i.e. Sam Jang), they are completely different forms/patterns. Check with your Taekwondo instructor to see if your school uses Palgwe or Taegeuk forms.

For additional instruction on other Palgwe forms, please visit the main Palgwe Taekwondo Forms page.
