INTERPRETATION OF PATTERN CHOONG-MOO: Choong-moo was the name given to the great admiral YiSoon-Sin of the Lee Dynasty.He was reputed to have invented the first armoured battleship (Kabuskson) in 1592, which is said to be the precursor of the present day submarine .The reason why this pattern ends with a left hand attack is to symbolize his regrettable death,having no chance to show his potentiality checked by the forced reservation of his loyalty to the king.
