Taegeuk O Jang

Taegeuk O Jang Symbol (Son) Taegeuk O Jang represents the symbol Son, which means the wind. Son symbolizes both the calmness of the gentle breeze and the devastating force of the hurricane. These two opposite natural phenomena are what apply to Taegeuk O Jang.

  • Downward hammer fist strikes
  • Forward elbow strikes
  • Target elbow strikes
  • Cross stance
