Choong-Moo 30 Movements

CHOONG-MOO was the name given to the great Admiral Yi Soon-Sin of the Yi Dynasty. He was reported to have invented the first armoured battleship (Kobukson) in 1592, which is said to be the precursor of the present day submarine. This pattern ends with a left-hand attack to symbolise his regrettable death; he was never allowed to reach his full potential as he was forced to be loyal to the king.
