3. The muscles of the body should either be tensed or relaxed at the proper critical moments in the exercise.
4. The pattern should be performed in a rhythmic motion with an absence of stiffness.
5. Movements should be accelerated or decelerated according to the instructions.
6. Each pattern should be perfected before moving to the next.
7. Students should know the purpose of each movement.
8. Each movement should be performed with realism.
Chon-Ji (19 movements)
CHON- JI means literally “the Heaven the Earth”. It is, in the Orient, interpreted as the creation of the world or the beginning of human history, therefore, it is the initial pattern played by the beginner. This pattern consists of two similar parts one to represent the Heaven and the other the Earth.
