|Part II||Chapter 91|
Tae-Geuk is a slashing technique seemingly based on the fingers.
As previously stated this technique is based around the fingers. When used the other two fingers are curled up leaving the pointer and middle fingers extended in a slashing motion. There is not much information on this technique except what is observed from Kwon-Young. It has been seen cutting through wood (trees) indicating that, although the execution is focused on two fingers, the result of this technique can be quite devastating and that it can cut through flesh at the very least.
Apparently, based on the direction that the execution of the technique follows the name of it changes.
- Tae-Geuk Ascending Strike: This variation is a kind of uppercut combined with the standard slash. It left twin slash marks around 1.5 - 2 meters long. Kwon-Young is well known for this strike and has been commented as executing it "perfectly."
