Taekwondo Form 1 – Taegeuk Il Jang

This page provides videos & instructions for WTF or WT Taekwondo Form 1 (Taegeuk Il Jang). This is the first Taekwondo form taught to new Taekwondo students.

According to WTF Taekwondo, 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”.
