Poomsae, also known as forms, are prearranged patterns of movement made up of fundamental stances, blocks, punches and kicks. They are meant to represent attacks, blocks and counterattacks against multiple imaginary opponents, from different directions.
While poomsae do not have the same dynamic as sparring, they teach important fundamanetal techniques. As students move to each belt level, they will be taught a new poomsae and will be expected to perfect it to progress to the next level.
