Pattern Choong-Moo (1st Kup)

 

 

 

 

Number of Movements: 30

CHOONG-MOO was the name given to the great Admiral Yi Soon-Sin of the Yi
Dynasty. He was reputed to have invented the first armoured battleship (Kobukson) in
1592, which is said to be the precursor of the present day submarine. The reason why this
pattern ends with a left hand attack is to symbolize his regrettable death, having no
chance to show his unrestrained potentiality checked by the forced reservation of his
loyalty to the king
