Taekwondo Forms with Instructions & Videos

Here are written and/or video instructions for 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 WTF Taekwondo color belt forms 1 through 8 and the nine WTF Taekwondo black belt forms. They also include the meaning of each Taekwondo form. Before the current Taegeuk forms (listed below), the WTF used Palgwe Forms (and these are still taught at many Taekwondo schools).

If you are looking for ITF Taekwondo patterns (i.e. Chon-Ji), please go to the main ITF Taekwondo Patterns section. In addition, please post your opinion on our wiki community on whether you think forms & patterns are useful or useless.

Reasons for 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 or tul, hyeong, hyung, etc. In Karate, this technique is known as kata.

Taekwondo forms are used to practice certain techniques (i.e. kicking combinations) as well as for conditioning purposes, muscle memory, focus/concentration, etc.
