Instructions for WTF Taekwondo Form 1 (Taegeuk Il Jang)

This page teaches you how to do WTF Taekwondo Form 1 (Taegeuk Il Jang). This is the first form taught to new Taekwondo students.

According to the World Taekwondo Federation, Taegeuk Il Jang "represents the symbol of 'Keon', one of the 8 Kwaes (divination signs), which means the 'heaven and yang'. As the 'Keon' symbolizes the beginning of the creation of all thing in the universe, so does the Taegeuk 1 Jang in the training of Taekwondo".
