Taekwondo Palgwe Forms - Free Videos & Instructions

This page provides free instructions for all of the Taekwondo Palgwe forms so you can get ready for your next Taekwondo belt test. It covers Palgwe forms 1 through 8. 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.

For the meaning of these forms, please visit the Meaning of Palgwe Taekwondo Forms.

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 Taekwondo forms. Check with your Taekwondo instructor to see if your school uses Palgwe or WTF Taekwondo forms (Taegeuk).

After Palgwe form 8, students who have learned the Palgwe forms for their color belts generally switch to the "official" WTF Black Belt Forms (i.e. Koryo).

Taekwondo Forms & Patterns

In Korean, Taekwondo forms are generally known as Poomse. Poomse can also be spelled as Poomsae, Pumsae, etc. In addition, Taekwondo forms are known as patterns, teul, tul, hyeong, hyung, etc. In Japanese martial arts such as Karate, forms and patterns are known as kata.

Many martial arts styles use forms in order to help students practice certain moves (i.e. kicking techniques, self-defense techniques and various strikes) as well as for improving a student's physical conditioning, muscle memory, focus/concentration, balance, etc. For additional benefits, you should read our section on the Benefits of Forms, Patterns & Kata.

To master Taekwondo forms, martial arts students should try to imagine that they are fighting an imaginary opponent. This allows students to practice "offensive" and "defensive" techniques (i.e. strike the imaginary opponent's neck at the correct height and angle) versus just going through the motions in order to pass a belt test.

You might also like to visit the wiki community's Forms, Kata & Patterns section that contains conversations such as Is Kata useful or useless?, Positives & negatives of forms & patterns, etc. In this section, wiki community members discuss forms, pattern & kata techniques, tips, improvements, etc.
