Taekwondo Training Flow drills for Taekwondo hand techniques

Hi and welcome to this clip. My name is Ørjan Nilsen, and I am the blogger from Traditional Taekwondo Ramblings Today I wanted to share one clip with you that I filmed last Friday. We filmed roughly 3 min of footage What we filmed was a flow drill template, that I have picked up in the last, maybe 2 years and I have been using them in my teaching and my own training to instil flow and limb control. The reason I like this flow drill is because it allows us to practise the Flow instead of the main stream traditional “Il Kyeok Pilsal!”; one strike, one kill, where you do one comitted strike and then you are finished. So the flow drills allows you to practise flow, what do you do when things go wrong, and it also allows you to practise, how to redirect a limb, which means you can reposition yourself according to the opponent and get from a disadvantegous position into a more advantegeous position. And then you can also continue your attack from there. That is truly what the traditional martial arts were all about. Taking the disadvantage and gaining the advantage. Taking control of the situation. In traditional taekwondo it is not the attacker that decides. It is YOU. YOU use your taekwondo to take control of the situation and defend yourself. I am going to revisit the template in the upcomming weeks. In this clip today you are going to see the first one that I introduce to my students. The attacker attacks with a haymaker, which you then block with an outward block, a high block, a shorterned high block. you then clear the limb from the outside, you check the attack, and then you do a haymaker punch of your own. So this is the basic template that I use, and in the upcomming weeks you will see variations on this basic template. Without further adu, lets skip over to the drill:-)
