In the 3rd Pumse or Poomsae TAEGUK SAM CHANG for the first time the position tuit kubi and defense techniques with open hand.
This pumse or pommsae is prepared for the change of grade from orange belt to green or green / orange belt.
TAEGUK SAM CHANG is RI or I = Fire or fire luminosity.
Which movements are developed in the poomsae Sam Chang?
This poomsae has twenty sequences and thirty-four movements. In addition, the “tuit kubi” position and defense techniques performed with an open hand such as “jansonnal montong maki” appear. Also, during the sequences you can find attacks with leg techniques such as “sonnal mok chigui”
- Sequences: 20
- Movements: 34
What would be the sequence scheme?
Recall that each poomsae begins and ends with a greeting in order to communicate respect through a kind of veneration, where the torso and head should be tilted, slide the hands along the thigh and fix the gaze for a few seconds on the feet.
This poomsae will be characterized by its double attacks in the initial movements, so its execution becomes practical for familiarization, especially since a double H is formed, such as the first and second poomsae. These movements and sequences in general are ideal to show power. Next we will explain in detail each of the sequences for a higher level of understanding:
- Sequence 1 (Ap sogui – Are maki): commonly known as defense below, this sequence is fragmented into several sections. Initially, it must be carried out by moving one of the arms to the opposite shoulder, which is why, in order to make it more practical, the hip must be turned at the precise moment when the arm is carried to the shoulder, in this way the palm of the hand touches the shoulder. This movement must be performed without excessive use of force. In the case of the other arm, it should be moderately flexed. When executing the sequence, it must be taken into account that the force of the arm that goes to the hip will be proportional to the effort used for the defense. One aspect to note is that the elbow must be a short distance from the body, in order to ensure adequate distance between the leg and the arm.
- Sequence 2 (Ap chagui / Ap kubi sogui – Montong dubon jirugui): move forward with a front kick (right foot kicks). Then, perform the Ap kubi sogui – Montong dubon jirugui movement which consists of making a double attack in the middle.To do this you must leave the left foot fixed, and the right foot forward as it was after the ap chagui and punch with The right arm should subsequently change arms.
- Sequence 3 (Ap sogui – Are maki): repeat sequence number 1 but this time after turning in the opposite direction.
- Sequence 4 (Ap chagui / Ap kubi sogui – Montong dubon jirugui): same as sequence number 2, but following the direction (right).
- Sequence 5 (Ap sogui – Sonnal (mok) an chigui): Using the right foot as an axis, turn the body to the left in such a way that it is in the front and performs the attack on the neck with the right arm.
- Sequence 6 (Ap sogui – Sonnal (mok) an chigui): With the left foot fixed, take a step with the right forward, repeat the attack on the neck but this time with the left arm.
- Sequence 7 (Tuit kubi – Jansonnal montong bakat maki / Apkubi sogui – Montong baro jirugui): with the fixed right foot, move the other foot to the left, and then perform Apkubi sogui – Montong baro jirugui which consists in executing a defense to open hand.
- Sequence 8 (Tuit kubi – Jansonnal montong bakat maki / Apkubi sogui – Montong baro jirugui): now with the left foot fixed, move the other foot forward, then and repeat Apkubi sogui – Montong baro jirugui.
- Sequence 9 (Ap sogui – Montong an maki): must be carried forward and moving the left foot. It fulfills the function of protecting the chest. The path of the right arm begins with the elbow somewhat bent from the back until it is carried and extended slightly to the top of the trunk.
- Sequence 10 (Ap sogui – Montong an maki): this time the path of the left arm begins with the elbow somewhat flexed from the back until it is carried and extended slightly to the top of the trunk.
- Sequence 11 (Ap sogui – Are maki): turn right and make a low stop with the forearm.
- Sequence 12 (Ap chagui / Ap kubi sogui – Montong dubon jirugui): similar to sequence number 2, with the difference that the movement will be made to the right side.
- Sequence 13 (Ap sogui – Are maki): turn and do the movement, already described several times, but this time to the left side.
- Sequence 14 (Ap chagui / Ap kubi sogui – Montong dubon jirugui): remember that Ap chagui is one of the most striking attacks. After this fundamental kick to run to the left side, you must perform Ap kubi sogui – Montong dubon jirugui, as described in previous sequences, which keep in mind that it is a double fist attack.
- Sequence 15 (Ap sogui – Are Maki / Ap sogui – Montong baro jirugui): turn center back to front to start with the return. Add the middle cross punch, which is represented by the name of Ap sogui – Montong baro jirugui.
- Sequence 16 (Ap sogui – Are Maki / Ap sogui – Montong baro jirugui): similar to the previous sequence but without the turn and with the opposite arm (left).
- Sequence 17 (Ap chagui): make use of the front kick with the left leg, continuing with the recoil.
- Sequence 18 (Ap sogui – Are maki / Ap sogui – Montong baro jirugui): make the low stop with the forearm and the semicircular movement from the shoulder to below the waist, remembering the distance that should be maintained above the knee (equivalent a fist away). Then, add the middle cross stroke Ap sogui – Montong baro jirugui.
- Sequence 19 (Ap chagui): perform the movement (kick blow) with the right leg.
- Sequence 20 (Ap sogui – are maki / Ap sogui – Montong baro jirugui -KIAP): low stop with the forearm, and it is accompanied by the crossed blow with the left arm and finish in KIAP, starting position with the customary scream.
