This, in turn, strengthens their belief system to the point that specific goals are possible and obtainable. 30 moves, Right foot Returns.


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. 19 moves, Left Foot returns.

Matthew 19:19

Honor Thy Father & Mother, Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself.


Testing is an important part of the CTF teaching program.  You must prepare by learning all your patterns, definitions, and drills. Come to the testing a little early to allow time to warm up and ask any last-minute questions you may have. Remember, this is a formal occasion and requires that you wear your traditional white uniform!

You must register in advance of the testing date.  See your instructor to register and pay your testing fee.

Additionally, all white belts and any students whose membership has expired in the Choong Sil Taekwondo Federation will need to complete a CTF membership and pay the annual membership fee of $40.00 before the test.

Testing is a very special occasion and a great time to demonstrate to your family and friends how much you have achieved.  Be sure to bring them with you to the testing.

Good Luck!
