Juche Tul now = Kodang Tul.

So what do we call Kodang? ;P




It's been pretty dead in here. How is everybody?
My instructor got his VI Dan this weekend. Big congrats to him!

Good luck!

Yes; he's quite thrilled! He started learning Tong-Il, which I think is just the coolest thing ever. :D

That's a shame. Really can't understand why people insist on changing things.

Not that I'm thrilled about this, but I will never forget when I was in high school I took an American Diplomatic History class. We had to do projects on the worst dictators in the world. Someone else got Kim Jung Il. She was presenting her project and she was trying to explain and pronounce "Juche" and I had to help her along; the true meaning is very communist, from what I remember. So I sorta get why they wouldn't want that as part of the patterns.

When the General was still with us, he was a bit notorious for changing details of patterns here & there, then when people asked why, declaring "Well, that's what I meant in the first place." So from that perspective changing the name is just carrying on the tradition.

So that's why every instructor I've had has a different take on each pattern... >.>

Yes, but this is just the name. The pattern we used to call "Juche" will now be called "Kodang." The pattern onced practiced and called "Kodang" doesn't seem to have a name anymore.

hmmm very interesting.
my understanding was Kodang was replaced long ago by the entirely different pattern Juche.
so its strange that the techniques performed as Juche would now be Kodang. when Kondang was once a pattern in its own right.

This change has come from the ITF Canada (Grand Master Choi Jung Hwa), it appears to me that it is likely to be some what of a political move to distinguish them selves from the ITF Vienna (Master Trân Triêu Quân) and the Chang Ung Group.

also great news about yor instructor.

Yeah, seriously, Barrie. No idea what to feel about that. I'll have to go back and read in the enclyopedia's what the General wanted.
