Easy guide to learn Poomse

Taekwondo Poomse is a prearranged series of attack and defense movements against an imaginary opponent in a set pattern.
The practice of Poomse improves breathing and physical control, strength, coordination, timing and balance. It also increases internal strength by conditioning the internal organs and the student masters the ability to use different types of power including stationary or sudden bursts (momentary power). It uses both flowing as well as quick abrupt movements. The primary forms of Taekwondo are known as the Tae Geuk series. For each belt grading or next level of advancement the Taekwondo student must be able to master the Poomse for that level.
