Chon-Ji - 19 moves

Chon Ji means literally ‘Heaven and Earth’. It is in the Orient interpreted as the creation of the world and the beginning of human history. Therefore it is the initial pattern played by the beginner. The patter has two similar parts, one to represent the Heaven, the other the Earth.
