SUPPLEMENTAL FORM - 19 MOVEMENTS

Chon-Ji literally means “Heaven & Earth,” which is the oriental symbol for the creation or the beginning of human history. The word Chon in Korean means heaven and the word Ji means earth. When combined the two words means creation of the universe. Also, Chon-Ji is the named after the crater lake on the extinct volcano, Paektu Mountain. This area was the first residence of the legendary founder of Korea, Tan-Gun. The form is appropriately named because the word creation implies starting point. The form consists of two similar parts: one part representing heaven & the other earth. The dedicated martial artist accepts that the universe is far more intricate than it may appear. The simplicity of the form masks its true complexity. Chon-Ji holds many hidden lessons that may not be realized even after years of dedicated study
