14 - Second Green Belt

Congratulations on earning your 6th kup (second green) belt in Tae Kwon Do.

14.1 - What You Will Learn in Second Green Belt

As a second green belt, you will continue to refine the techniques you have learned to this point.

You will learn three additional Poom Se: Palgwe Sa Jang, Pyung An Sam Dan and Tae Guek Sam Jang. You should be aware that these forms are in addition to the thirteen forms you already know. You must continue to develop the white belt through green belt forms.

14.2 - The Second Green Belt Examination

To pass the examination for your blue belt, you will have to perform sixteen forms, all of which the sabumnim will expect to see done with considerable skill.

The white, yellow, second yellow and green belt forms should be well developed; the second green belt forms should be crisp and precise — mistake free.

You will have to identify the 14 Hangul consonants and the 21 Hangul vowels; you will have to indicate which vowels are simple, which are derived vowels, and which are compound vowels. You will detail each compound vowel's origins. You will read, from the Hangul, all twenty eight form names.

All self-defense techniques will be demonstrated; as will all takedown techniques.
