16 - Second Blue Belt
Congratulations on earning your 4th kup (2nd Blue) belt in Tae Kwon Do.
16.1 - What You Will Learn in Second Blue Belt
As a 2nd Blue belt, you will continue to refine the techniques you have learned to this point.
You will learn three additional Poom Se: Palgwe Yook Jang, Pyung An Oh Dan and Tae Guek Oh Jang. As usual, these forms are in addition to the nineteen forms you have already learned. You must continue to develop the white belt through first blue belt forms while you work on your three new forms.
16.2 - The Second Blue Belt Examination
To pass the examination for your red belt, you will have to perform the following twenty-two forms:
The white, yellow, second yellow, green, second green and blue belt forms should be well developed; the second blue belt forms should be crisp and precise — mistake free.
You will have to identify the 14 Hangul consonants and the 21 Hangul vowels; you will have to indicate which vowels are simple, which are derived vowels, and which are compound vowels. You will detail each compound vowel's origins.You will read, from the Hangul, all twenty eight form names.
All self-defense techniques will be demonstrated; as will all takedown techniques.
