Training Secrets

An old proverb says that even heaven cannot make a diligent worker poor. However, in Taekwon-Do, diligence or intensive training alone does not produce quality techniques. On the contrary, instructions from a false or unqualified instructor would be worse than not being taught at all because unscientific movements not only reduce the power but require a tremendous amount of time to correct. On the other hand, under the proper guidance of a competent instructor, a student who trains earnestly with dedication will learn the true techniques of Taekwon-Do in a comparatively short period of time with less effort.

 

Students should keep in mind the following secrets:

 

    * To study the theory of power thoroughly.

 

 

    * To understand the purpose and method of each movement clearly.

 

 

    * To bring the action of eyes, hands, feet and breath into one single coordinated action.

 

 

    * To choose the appropriate attacking tool for each vital spot.

 

 

    * To become familiar with the correct angle and distance for attack and defence.

 

 

    * Keep both the arms and legs bent slightly while movement is in motion.

 

 

    * All movements must begin with a backward motion or in opposite direction with very few exceptions.

      However, once the movement is in motion it should not be stopped before reaching the target.

 

 

    * To create a sine wave during the movement by utilizing the knee spring properly.

 

 

    * To exhale briefly at the moment of each blow except a connecting motion.
