Notes

  1. The Palgwae forms differ from the Taegeuk and Pumsae forms in many ways. In fact, the Palgwae forms have many similarities to the ITF forms that the Taegeuk and Pumsae forms do not. This means that there are some movements which are ambiguous in their naming: a reverse punch in the ITF style is called an obverse punch in the WTF style. In all of the Palgwae forms articles on this site, the WTF naming conventions will be used.

Korean Date

The date today is,

4350 년 3 월 30 일 (4350, Month 3 Day 30) (25 May 2017 CE)

This is the date according to the traditional lunisolar calendar of Korea. (Note that this is not an authoritative calculation; I’m still working on the details.) The years count back to the legendary founding of Korea by 단군 왕검 (Dan-gun Wanggeom).
