These techniques are not only the most interesting in Taekwon-Do but also the most advanced. They are, in every sense, for practicai self-defense. These techniques are the logical application of various motions acquired from patterns, sparring, and fundamental movements to be used against a sudden attack by an armed or unarmed opponent.
The defender must know how to make use of his opponent´s momentum and force while utilizing his or her dynamic and reflexive actions against a momentarily undefended target.
Certainly, these self-defense techniques can only be effective if the student takes the time to constantly train with them under realistic conditions.
