2015 May Black Belt Indoor Test (part III) – Self-defense
Self-defense forms part of the required curriculum at Yoo’s Martial Arts. Many Taekwondo schools focus solely on sparring for tournament competition, which is important but limited in its practical application since it prohibits punching to the face (under World Taekwondo Federation rules). At Yoo’s Martial Arts the core curriculum of self-defense was conceived by Grand Master Yoo and aims at countering various attacks including punches, kicks, chokeholds, and knives. It incorporates diverse techniques from Hapkido and Judo.
