Here are the requirements for the OMAC Black Belt 2nd dan.
A1. Patterns (Poomsae) (With links to video):
- Keumgang – Official Kukkiwon pattern for WTF Black Belt 2nd dan.
- Chul-gi EE dan
Notes for the Patterns
The spelling for patters #2 to #5 was given to me by Master Harrison.
The video for #1, Keumgang is the official video from the Kukkiwon, and shows the officially recognized way of performing this pattern. Videos #2-#5 are performed by Master Ray Dae Hyun Kwon (4th dan) of OMAC Burlington. I shot the videos in Spring 2012, and edited accordingly with music and an ever-important slow motion part.
#5 Chul-gi EE dan appears to be an adaptation from the 2nd degree Shotokan karate kata known as “Tekki Nidan”.
A2. Patterns, weapons
B. 1-step Sparring, defense against knife attacks, 1 to 9.
C. Olympic Sparring sampling
D. Break – Two concrete bricks, 4cm each. (A video of my break is at the bottom of this page.)
