TaeKwon-Do is a version of unarmed combat designed for self-defense, and more. It is the scientific and ultimate use of the body gained through intensive physical and mental training.

Meaning: means "Global".  The "X" crosses out the years of political strife in TaeKwon-Do that has been evident world-wide.  The first movement symbolizes the beginning of the new Global TaeKwon-Do Movement - a concept of global peace and harmony.  The 30 movements of the pattern are comprised of three numbers (24, 4, 2) which explain the purpose.  There are 24 hours in each day; therefore this concept will be with us every second.  The four directions of movements represent the north, south, east and west encompassing all nations and all people.  The four directions are done two times to reinforce our commitment to bring global peace and harmony to the world.
