I posted this on the culture section earlier, but nobody goes there, ever. I have been going around correcting things in Korean language discussions, and turns out, people appreciate them thanks to the sheer number of people who do taekwondo on the forum. Yeah... So ask me stuff about the Korean language including taekwondo vocab. Thanks.

I have so many questions! I'll start with just a few:

What's the difference between Dwi-kkumchi 曰儦 and Dwi-chuk 木 ? I take it they're different parts of the heel?

At our school we call a back hook kick a Hwe Chuk, which I guess means an arcing heel? Why is the "heel" part of that just "chuk". When you use the word "chuk" alone would people know that that means heel?

At our school we call a jump back hook kick a Jugo Hwe Chuk. Previously on this board someday alluded to the fact that Jugo is a conjugation of a verb that means "to gain momentum by swinging". To me this seems like a really obscure way to name that kick; is it?

Is there a word for the back-side of the knee?

What's the difference between Son-mok 諈 and Pal-mok 諈 ? Are they different areas of the wrist?

What's the difference between Pal-kup 窱 and Pal-kkumchi 篹儦 ?

Normally I hear a Long Front Stance called Ap Gubi 窱趣 but I'm told an older term is something like "Ap Gubigi" (I don't know if I'm even romanizing that correctly.) I guess "Gubi" means something like "bent" or "flexible"...what the heck does Gubigi mean?

When describing a jumping kick, what's the difference between Twimyo and Ttwieo?

At our school we call a Jump Front Kick an Eedan Ap Chagi...again, this seems like an obscure way to name that kick; is it?

1) 曰儦 means heel and 木 refers to the ones on shoes
2) I don't know what you're trying to romanise or if it's even grammatically coherent, sorry.
3) 'jugo' means a conjunction form of 'to give.' So you're clearly telling me the wrong word.
4) can't find a scientific one yet, but most will say 諡渠 鴘
5) 窱 is an incorrect expression of 篹儦 according to the dictionary.
6) 窱趣湊萼 means bending or hunching.
7) I can't interpret that romanisation into anything.
8) 2 means 'two levels.' I guess if you're raising the other leg it makes sense.

Hope I helped.

General Choi use the word "Tul" to replace Hyung when referring to patterns. . Please explain the difference.

""(Hyung) means form, and I don't know what 'tul' is unless you can spell it out in Korean somehow, because it means nothing.

Template would likely be most fitting. How would you romanize it?

is without a doubt one of the hardest vowel sounds for non-Koreans to reproduce. I've sat with my master and others and tried with coaching and advice, without much success. It's the same sound as in the middle of 'jireugi' and 'geuman', normally romanised as 'eu'.

Thanks for letting us ask you. Can you tell why Korean has different phrases for everything? For example if say "How are you" wouldn't it be " 鴔 ?"? But in Google translate it says "渠骯 鴔?" Also, speaking of Taekwondo.... I learn that Reverse spinning hook kick is "Dweeryo Momdolyo Huryo Chagi" is that correct? Is there another term? Thanks man.

Let's break down 'reverse spinning hook kick.'
月-to the back
諈賈-turn body (accusative)
-whipping or hooking
麆刷萼-kicking

It's more a description of the move.

When describing a jumping kick, what's the difference between Twimyo and Ttwieo?

域 麆刷萼
and

圉庚 麆刷萼

The first, ttwieo chagi is the term that can be found in Kukkiwon publications, while ttwimyeo is the term being used in General Choi's Taekwondo book.

I'm also wondering what the exact difference between the two terms is.

域渥馬篣 means 'jumping and kicking' and 圉庚麆刷萼 means 'kicking as you're jumping.'
