About Pattern

The two fundamental movement sequences “Four Direction Punch” or Saju Jjireugi (aka Saju Jirugi) and “Four Direction Block” or Saju Makgi are very important training exercises to help the beginning student get a feeling for static and dynamic balance, to get a sense of how to shift one’s body weight, and to get an awareness of one’s positioning within your surroundings. The more sensitive and higher level student can also learn from the saju-sequences the importance of intermedial positions and the concepts of hard-and-soft.
