[nextpage title=”Men’s Team”]
The 2nd half of the UAAP Taekwondo tournament, after the kyorugi (sparring) tournament, is the poomsae tournament. Poomsae, or pumsae, when translated means form and requires much discipline to successfully master. The forms performed by the jins have been determined weeks prior to the tournament.

The UAAP Poomsae meet is a one-day contest broken down into 5 categories. This recap will focus on the 4th event: the Men’s Team category. Each category is broken down into the elimination round with the top 3 going to the finals while each round would consist of 2 forms. 5 judges are designated to score each performance.

The jins performing are as follows: (By order of performance)

The Forms
Taegeuk 8 or Taegeuk Pal Jang

The trigram represented in this form is earth. Moreover, it represents the yin in yin-yang. This is the last of the 8 taegeuk poomsaes. With all these in mind, it represents the beginning and the end, the root and the settlement. The jin must put emphasis on the accuracy of stepping and the difference between the jumping-over kick and the alternate jumping kick in the air.

Taegeuk 7 or Taeguek Chil Jang

The trigram represented in this form is mountain. A mountain exemplifies indomitability and majesty but still carrying a serene imagery. The jin’s performance must exemplify beauty, hardness and serenity, just like a beautiful mountain.

Here are the performances of each jin based on ranking.

Forms
Sipjin

In Korean folklore, there are 10 symbols for longevity: sun, moon, mountain, water, stone, pine tree, herb of eternal youth, turtle, deer and crane. All these symbols give man faith, hope and love. Sipjin represents the 10 symbols for longevity. This form represents the endless development and growth of a jin.

Keumgang

Keumgang is defined as a diamond. In addition, the mountain Keumgang, is the symbol of Korean national spirit. A Keumgang warrior is the mightiest of warriors as said by Buddha. The jin performing the keumgang must represent the hardness and beauty of a diamond and, as well as, the balance as represented by the keumgang warrior.

Here are the performances of each jin based on ranking.
