List of Taekwondo Forms (with Instructions)
This page provides free instructions for all of the WTF Taekwondo forms (color belt and black belt forms). You will need to learn these Taekwondo forms in order to be awarded your next level color belt or black belt at WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) Taekwondo schools.
These pages cover the eight WTF Taekwondo color belt forms and the nine WTF Taekwondo black belt forms. They also include the meaning of each Taekwondo form. WTF Taekwondo schools use Taegeuk forms for the color belt levels. However, before the current Taegeuk forms were adopted, the WTF used Palgwe forms. Be aware that many Taekwondo schools still use Palgwe forms. Therefore, please check with your instructor to see your Taekwondo school uses Taegeuk or Palgwe forms.
If you are looking for ITF Taekwondo patterns (i.e. Chon-Ji), please go to the main ITF Taekwondo Patterns section.
For more information on Taekwondo forms & patterns, please visit the wiki community discussions such as Which form or pattern would you retain?, Competition Forms & Patterns - Improvement Techniques, Are forms & patterns useful or useless?, etc.
