Hey I recently started taking Taekwondo in a local studio were I live at; McKinney Texas. From what I gathered is that this martial arts is tougher then it looks (Aren't they all?) but to the main part I was just wondering if anyone here can lend a jump start white belt some pointers on how to be an effective Taekwondo combatnat? I know bullshido has a few bad ass kicker roaming it web so show this dude how it's done.
To clarify I mean old school taekwondo not this modern day BS they feed us the good old classic tradition styles or practices to make my hits more or less leave you gagging on your blood from a collapsed lung. Well not that bad , if it isn't possible, but something along those lines. Alright later!
Clarify what you mean by old school. Being that you are new to TKD and I assume martial arts, how do you know the difference between old school and modern? Are you Kukiwon affiliated or ITF school?
Well from what I gathered most of the art has been altered some what. Like not as hardcore as it originally was, not to say it still isn't badass. Like certain ways to train in a way that aren't used today. If that makes any sense.
Nope. Not really.
What forms are you learning?
What do you do during practice?
How often do you spar?
What rules do you spar under?
Who is your instructor?
Bottom line; it the Way of Stomping & Punching.
If you're not practicing by kicking & punching people, through pad drills, light sparring, & FULL CONTACT sparring....
There's nothing an Internet forum is going to be able to help you with.
Kick hard and keep your hands up. Nothing I have done has quite flustered the people I've sparred with at the dojang like the simple refusal to flop my arms around like they're well cooked noodles.
I've only been at this for a year. Important things I've learned.
KEEP YOUR HANDS UP!!!!
Tuck in your chin
Pivot your plant foot when you kick
Bend the knee of your plant leg when you kick
Don't shift your plant foot before you kick
KEEP YOUR HANDS UP when you kick
Retract your foot after you kick
Get your stances right
Don't look at your feet (or the ground)
Don't try spin moves when sparring (you aren't fast enough yet).
Don't use traditional stances when sparring
Throw combinations when sparring
Punch with you whole body
Stay in control don't get off balance
Strong kicks are better than high kicks
None of you are his instructor. None of you should be giving him advice.
If he just started training, what he needs to do is follow the training course outlined by his instructor & not be asking advice from people he's never met who have no fucking clue what his teacher is actually teaching him.
OP, post in Newbietown. Stay there until you understand what this forum is for.
