Patterns are various fundamental movements, most of which represent either attack or defence techniques, set to a fixed and logical sequence. There are a total of twenty-four patterns in Taekwon-Do, they represent the twenty-four hours of the day. The name of the pattern, the number of movements, and the diagrammatic symbol of each pattern symbolises either heroic figures in Korean history or instances relating to historical events.
