WhitePalgwe One   (pdf)
20 MovementsHeaven: The first form represents the greatness of heaven and light. This form is powerful and aggressive and should be considered the source of creation.

YellowPalgwe Two  (pdf)
26 MovementsLake: The second form represents the treasures and mysteries of the lake. This form should be performed with ease and fluidity. This is an uplifting, serene and gentle form that should be performed forcefully but not aggressively. This form represents an awareness of your limitations and your ability to overcome or live within them.

OrangePalgwe Three  (pdf)
22 MovementsFire: The third palgwe form represents the energy of fire or the sun. This form should be performed with warmth and enthusiasm. This form represents the characteristics of fire such as variety and passion. The movements should be executed with quick, rhythmic, unpredictable pace and styling.

High GreenPalgwe Four  (pdf)
28 movementsThunder: The fourth form represents thunder (noise without substance) which is a powerful natural source that comes from the sky and is absorbed by the earth. This form should be performed with bravery and courage. This form contains movements that display calm composure and strong balance such as blocks in combination with strikes and front kicks that require you to use force but immediately recover into a back stance, the way a passing thunderstorm nourishes the earth.

High BluePalgwe Five  (pdf)
37 movementsWind: The fifth palgwe form represents wind (substance without noise) which is a gentle force that can change directions and become destructive without warning. This form should be performed with movements that change from gentle to violent. The movements of this form are yielding yet penetrating, soothing yet destructive, invisible yet manifest. This form represents a humble state of mind which balances the contrasting elements of the wind, gentleness and power.

BrownPalgwe Six
29 MovementsWater: The sixth form represents the liquidity and formlessness of water. Water flows around and absorbs things. It never loses its form. This teaches us that hardships and difficulties can be overcome by maintaining the natural flow, movement and integrity of water. This set of movements should be performed as though every action is exactly what is called for to overcome a situation at a particular moment in time.

BrownPalgwe Seven
29 MovementsMountain: The seventh form symbolizes the immovable mountain. This form is characterized by stability in which moving and stopping occur at the appropriate times and for the appropriate reasons. This pattern reflects the need to combine movement and non-movement in response to an attack. The stability of a mountain comes from structural soundness and a form that is noble and majestic.

BlackPalgwe Eight
36 MovementsEarth: The eighth palgwe form represents the earth from which all all things are born, mature and die. It represents the end of the beginning as the platform from which the next level of growth can take place. It is the end of the cycle that begins the new cycle of forms. It is from here that everything grows.

32 Movementsis named after the patriot An-Chung Gun who assisinated Hiro Bumi Ito, the first Japanese governor-general of Korea, known as the man who played the leading part in the Korea-Japan merger. The thirty-two movements in this pattern represent Mr. An's age when he was executed in Lui-Shung prison in 1910.

Brown Toi-Gye  (pdf)
37 Movementsis the pen name of the noted scholar Yi Hwang (16th Century) an authority on Neo-Confucianism. The 37 movements of this pattern represent his birthplace on the 37th parallel and the diagram means scholar.

Brown Hwa-Rang  (pdf)
29 Movementsis named after the Hwarangdo youth group which originated in the Silla Dynasty around 620 A.D. This group eventually became the driving force in the unification of the three kingdoms of Korea (Silla, Kogoryu, and Baek Je).

Brown Chung-Mu
30 MovementsChung-Mu is the name given to the great Admiral Yi Sun Sin of the Yi Dynasty. He was reputed to have invented the first armored battleship (kobukson) which was the precursor of the present day submarine in 1592 A.D. The reason this pattern finishes with a left hand attack is to symbolize his regrettable death, having no chance to show his loyalty to the king.

GM Jung has asked for the following rules for testing:

1.Testing for brown belt and above must be done at the main school during the regular testing time. The only exceptions are for family emergencies and special family events. 
2.Testing for other belt levels should also be done at the main school during the regular testing. If a student has an approved reason for not attending regular testing, eg a medical reason, family emergency, or a special family event, the student may attend a make up test with the preferred site to be the main school. This should not include students who just want to attend other events, eg sporting events, dances, etc. For those students testing should be delayed to the next regular test time. 
3.The home school may be the preferred test site for tiny tigers, but those students may also be included in regular testing. 
4.If a branch school has a pre-existing agreement with GM Jung, that agreement will continue.
