Ten Rules of Poomse –

  1. When assuming the ready stance, be calm, cautious, and courageous. This is displayed through a show of power with the hands in a fist.
  2. Focus all your concentration on the task at hand. Shut out all other noises and distractions.
  3. Maintain objective focus. Look straight ahead in executing a block, punch or kick. You should see and visualize the target area.
  4. Execution of every movement must be dynamic. Maximum power should be displayed with every block, kick and punch.
  5. When a yell (kihap) is called for, it must be sharp and loud, reflecting the strong spirit of the performer.
  6. In turning, look first, then turn. Remember that in forms, one defends against multiple imaginary attackers. You must see the attackers before you can defend against them.
  7. Seemingly endless repetition of the poomse (over 1,000 times per form) is the key to mastering and complete understanding of the form.
  8. After many years, the student begins to discover the mental and spiritual nature of Taekwondo through the poomse.
  9. At the completion of the form, return to the ready stance – calmly, gracefully, and with satisfaction.
  10. Watching someone perform a poomse who has mastered it can be a breathtaking site. Always remember poomse is a performance. One should challenge himself/herself each time a form is performed.
