ok if one step SD is the kind of thing in the animated gif then No I don't think it's very helpfull.

It's like Black Belt keeps telling me: 'situational awareness'. If you see a blue background, beware, 'cause someone's going to grab your shoulder.

Or force you to do a weather forecast. Oh, the hairspray!

Agreed, if this is what Sirc means by "one step SD" then I will have to disagree. We did a ton of these in my early TKD days and they never really became of any use in actual sparring.

If I'm interpretin the OP right, it depends.

defences against say, a headlock, can come in handy.

defences of the sort in the animated gif, obviously not.

Do you agree or disagree that those "one-step" self-defense things are effective? I think they are, I mean, what's the difference between practicing a preconceived attack and say like, shadow boxing? Or learning to slip a punch? Agree? Disagree?

I'm going to have to gouge my eyes out with a cocktail fork for even remembering this **** but I'm guessing you're asking about TKD Step Sparring (4 step, 2 step etc.....)

While I don't think its a bad thing the problem is that it doesn't teach to you to 'do' the technique. I suppose you could but since the attention to detail has always been around this hand here and this foot here etc etc.... The practitioners usually never drill it at varying speeds or with levels of resistance.

When I train bouncers we do 'step drills' (in Jiu Jitsu some call it Chess) and these are similar to Step Sparring but they only stay slow for a bit and then are sped up and resistance is added.

If you exclusively use it as a training tool to show people how to move and what not then they are an excellent place to start. The problem is that most TKD schools are so stunningly unaware of what goes on outside the walls of the dojang that they usually stop there and pretend like it is a drill for technique and not the start of an SD training....

its good practice, only with "resistance" and if you don't stop the technique, your going to get hit.

"one-step self defense" is to fighting as ????? is to sex.

If you can't put down an attacker in one step, you deserve what you get.

I'm afraid that was a trick question. The answer is actually:

e) Reading a "How To" sex manual written by a virgin.

Both are somewhat frustrating, divorced from reality, with remarkably little accuracy while they provide a misguided and vague idea about self defense/sex without any useful knowledge or actually gratification.

And yes, we do 'one step' type drills.

Taking advice from a shotokan guy is like calling up your mom for sex advice. Sure the advice might be 'good' but do you really want to ask?

In my experience I have found 1 step defence drills completely effective against 1 step attacks, are there any other kind?

D. Fang Shen Do

Fang Shen Do promotes a healthy sex life, primarily by discouraging overtly submissive practices such as 'pulling guard'.


A UCLA study last year that surveyed 250 participants in grappling sports found that 69% of respondents identified more closely with their feminine side[1], and in turn found it difficult to be the dominant partner in a relationship. This percentage was closer to 89% among Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practicioners [2].
