Focusing Your Taekwondo Techniques

Focusing Your Techniques

Many students when practicing either poomsae or individual movements take their technique past the target. Always try and imagine that you are training in front of a mirror and try and hit the correct target whether it is the solar plexus or the top lip. A general rule is that a middle section punch should aim directly in the centre of the body and should angle very slightly downwards. A high section punch to the top lip for example should be directly in the centre and should angle very slightly upwards. Remember that when you execute your technique you should be in a low stance which automatically brings your techniques down to your level.

Remember: When working with a partner however you should aim at their target areas whatever their size.
