Black Belt Indoor Test
One-step sparring is part of the required adult curriculum at Yoo’s Martial Arts. Students learn how to counter punches using various effective blocks, kicks, sweeps, wrist locks and other techniques to force an opponent into submission. As with self-defense techniques, one-step sparring incorporates diverse techniques from Hapkido and Judo, allowing for effective strikes, restraints and takedowns.

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.
