Taebaek is the name of a mountain with the meaning of "bright mountain", where Tangun, the founder of the nation of Korean people, reigned the country, and the bright mountain symbolizes sacredness of soul and Tangun's thought of "hongik ingan"[humanitarian ideal]. There are numerous sites known as Taebaek, but Mt. Paektu, which has been typically known as the cradle of Korean people, is the background naming the Taebaek poomsae. New techniques introduced in this poomsae are sonnal-arae-hecho-makki, sonnal-opeo-japki [grabbing], japhin-son-mok-ppaegi [pulling out the caught wrist], Kumkang-momtong-makki, deung-jumeok-olgul-bakkat-chigi, dol-tzeogi [hinge], etc. The line of poomsae is like a Chinese letter, which symbolized the bridge between the Heaven and the earth, signifying human beings founded the nation by the Heaven's order. The poomsae movements are largely composed of momtong-makkis and chigis.

The 7th World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships have kicked off on Dec. 6, 2012 for a four-day run in Tunja, Colombia, where a record number of participating athletes perform free-style poomsae for the first time.
Poomsae is a form of taekwondo consisting of various fundamental stances, blocks, punches and kicks logically arranged in a meaningful order in response to attacks from multiple imaginary assailants attacking from different directions.
Free-style poomsae features individual, pair and mixed teams of athletes performing attacking and defending taekwondo techniques, along with a composition of music and choreography of their choice for 60-70 seconds, which is then scored on technical skills and presentation.
