Yellow Tag

 

Pattern:- Chon Ji Tul (19 movements). 

 

Chon Ji literally means the 'heaven and the earth'. In theorient it in interpreted as the creation of the world and beginning of human history, therefore it is the initial pattern performed by the beginner. 

 

Belt:- Yellow

 

Yellow belt signifies the earth from which the plant sprouts and takes root as the foundations of Tae Kwon-do are laid. 

 

Origins of Chon-Ji

 

It is said, in Korean legend, that the country of Korea was founded at the point of the highest mountain on the border of North Korea and China, Mount Peaktu (9000ft above sea level). It is an extinct volcano which has filled with water to create what is possibly the deepest volcanic lake on earth, Lake Chon (Heavenly Lake). 

 

The lake waters are clear and calm, and it reflects the blue sky by day and the black sky at night, which looks like the heavens meet the earth, giving the pattern interpretation its meaning.
