Written Instructions for Taekwondo ITF Pattern 2 (Dan-Gun)

* Since some ITF schools seem to have slightly different instructions for Dan-Gun, I have included alternative versions of this Taekwondo pattern. The main difference seems to be different names for the same stances (i.e. back stance versus L-stance). Please find the version taught at your school.
