The SIPJIN or SYPCHIN Pooms are the fifth superior poomsae. It derives from the conception of The 10 divinities, in reference to the deities of “eternal life” such as the sun, the moon, the mountains, the water, the stones, the pines, the grass of eternal youth, the turtles, the deer and the crane, the latter being a long-legged bird.
The Poomsae or Pumse SIPJIN or SYPCHIN venerates both nature and the decimal system, reflecting the perfect harmony of evolution and growth of unlimited character through an ordered norm.
