Instructions for Taekwondo's Closed Stance (or Moa Seogi)

This page provides details for a Taekwondo Closed Stance (or Moa Seogi). Stances are used in Taekwondo forms and patterns, training exercises, sparring, etc.

Details regarding the Taekwondo Closed Stance

According to the Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Headquarters, the Taekwondo closed stance is a "stance with the inside edges of both feet completely closed together and both knees straightened. Before or after poomsae, this posture is adopted to focus the performer’s mind and relieve his or her physical tension. When only the balls of the feet are closed together, it is called apchuk-moa-seogi, and only the bottoms of the heels are closed together, dwichuk-moa-seogi."
