A pattern is a set of fundamental movements, both attack and defense, set in a logical sequence designed to deal with one or more imaginary opponents. Patterns are an indication of a student's progress, or a barometer in evaluating an individual's technique.
Patterns are practised to improve Taekwon-Do techniques, to develop sparring techniques, improve flexibility of movement, master body shifting, build and tone muscles to improve balance and breathe control. They also enable the student to learn techniques which cannot be found in other forms of training.
