Taegeuk SAM Jang symbolizes "Ree", which is one of the 8 divination signs. Rae represents "hot and bright" which is to aid the encourage of the true essence of training - moral justice and a desire to learn. New actions found with this Taegeuk are sonnal mokchigisonnal makki and the dwitkubi stance. This poomsae is characterized by successive makki and jireugi, chagi and continued jireugi. Emphasis is on the immediate counterattacks as a defence against the opponent's attack. This poomsae is practiced by 6th Kup-grade trainees and above.
