If you are a typical student of Taekwond-Do, or any other martial art that practises semi-free, continuous sparring, then this book is for you.
Written specifically for club-level martial artists, "Effective Taekwon-Do Sparring" bridges the gap between the wider Taekwon-Do syllabus and the particular demands of sparring.
In order to do this, the authors go right back to basics.
The fundamentals of stance, movement and defence are analysed in detail and significantly adapted for the sparring arena.
Core attacking techniques are reviewed and, if necessary, modified in order to improve their effectiveness in typical sparring scenarios.
Finally, basic elements of sparring strategy such as assessing opponents, creating openings, effective combinations and counter-attacks are examined.
