"QUOTE"
Preoccupation with advancement is a manifestation of the self-important ego,and that is something the practice of Tae Kwon-Do attempts to suppress; it is only when the ego is diminished that you can truly behave without self-interest that your skills will truly develop.

PERFORMING PATTERNS:

Patterns should begin and end on the same spot. This will indicate the performers accuracy.

The pattern should be performed in a rhythmic movement with the absence of stiffness.
Each pattern should be accelerated or decelerated according to instructions.
Each pattern should be perfected before moving to the next.
