Tae Kwon-Do

5th Kup (Green Belt, Blue Tags)

Blue belt signifies the heaven towards which the plant matures into a towering tree as training in Tae Kwon-do progresses.

The pattern, Yul-Gok, is the pseudonym of the great philosopher and scholar Yil (1536-1584) nicknamed the "Confucious of Korea."

The 38 movements of this pattern refer to his birthplace on the 38th degree of latitude and the diagram represents "scholar".
