Yon Gae (49 Moves)
Yon Gae is named after Yon Gae Somon, a famous general who lived during the Koguryo Dynasty. The 49 movements refer to the last two digits of 649 A.D., the year he forced the Tang Dynasty to quit Korea after destroying nearly 300,000 of their troops at Ansi Sung.

Moon Moo (61 Moves)
Moon Moo honours the 30th King of the Silla Dynasty. His body was buried near Dae Wang Am (Great King's Rock). According to his will, the body was placed in the sea "where my soul shall forever defend my land against the Japanese". It is said that the Sok Gul Am (Stone cave) was built to guard his tomb. The Sok Gul Am is a fine example of the culture of the Silla Dynasty. The 61 movements in this pattern symbolise the last two figures of 661 A.D. when Moon Moo came to the throne.

The 72 movements refer to his age when he organised a corps of monk soldiers with the assistance of his pupil Samyong Dang. The monk soldiers helped repulse the Japanese pirates who overran most of the Korean peninsula in 1592.
