The Koryo dynasty was an ancient dynasty!


One of the black belt forms this cycle is Kwang-Gae! Another fun fact about the form is that it begins with a movement called Heaven Hands. According to legend, King Kwang-Gae would gaze through his hands to heaven before battle, asking the gods for a fast and successful battle! To signal the start of battle, the king would thrust his hands apart.
