Tae Kwon-Do

3rd Kup (Blue Belt, Red Tag)

Red signifies danger, cautioning the student to exercise control, and the opponent to stay away.

The pattern, Toi-Gye, Is the pen name of the noted scholar Yi Hwang (16th century), an authority on neo-Confucianism.

The 37 movements of the pattern refer to his birthplace on the 37th degree of latitude, and the diagram represents "scholar."
