 I am working on a morning routine video for my Patreon members on Patreon dot com /traditionaltaekwondoramblings .  This is a routine of standing exercises which is highly suitable in any training environment (sitting exercises are better for indoor training) and it loosens up and readies the body from the ankles up to the head and everything in between. It’s a great routine for starting out your day, it really opens up all kinks and soothes old injuries. It’s also a great way to start out your training session as it wakes up all limbs and joints, and it’s great if you are struggli ..read more

 https://www.patreon.com/posts/106252502?utm_campaign=postshare_creator I recently started a Patreon site dipping my toes into that pool. I’m planning on doing a little more in depth content there where I can justify the time spent on the work done? Right now I have shared a few videos that I’ve already made so people can see where I’m going with this, and over time I’m planning on having follow along solo training sessions, tutorial training sessions with different Poomsae and Hyung, tutorials on basic techniques, discussions on history philosophy and background on taekwondo etc.  ..read more

Tan-Gun Hyung

 This is the second form taught in the Ch'ang Hon Hyung series. It is called Tan-Gun Hyung or Tan-Gun Tul in modern ITF and ITF-derived schools. In his 1965 book on Taekwondo, Choi Hong Hi writes this on Tan-Gun Hyung: "Tan-Gun is named after the holy Tan-Gun, the legendary founder of Korea in the year of 2334 B.C." And that is really all the background you get on this character. I only recently learned this form in my exploration and re-connection with my Oh Do Kwan roots (I have one teacher with Ji Do Kwan roots and one with Oh Do Kwan roots), but I was taught the story of Tan-Gun ear ..read more

Micro Post; The combo for the week (week 21)

You all thought I’d forgotten about this weeks combo didn’t you? Well here it is in all its glory (as much glory a chubby stiff inflexible guy can give it anyways?) a jab-cross to the head which makes the opponent lift his arms to cover, an outwards crescent kick to remove his guard followed by a front kick to the head. Using crescent kicks as removing the guard is one of the “traditional” uses for them in combat, but you’ll also find many examples in old textbooks as “blocks” against both kicks and punches as well.  ..read more

Micro Post; The combo for the week (week 20)

 Playing with twisting kick this time (biteuro chagi). I’m being mindful of how I move because of my injury, but I’ve never been a good kicker ? I do a jab, cross and flow into a twisting kick. All to the head at first, but the angle of the twisting kick sometimes bypass the guard. I also play around with different heights at the end doing a jab cross, low section twist kick (in my mind the opponent became off balanced and presented his head to me so I followed up with an outward crescent kick ..read more

 As the song goes: “I hurt myself today…” I tore my calf muscle on my left leg so I’m not sure what that will do to this series as I have to be very mindful by in my training and take it sloooow while I recover. So if you don’t get more weekly combos for a while that will explain it. Continuing on the theme punch-kick and utilising the versatile yet often overlooked front kick; in this combo I Jab, Cross (only doing a half hip twist as in a traditional reverse punch), and then flow straight into a back leg front kick. The punches to the head draws the guard up, so the kick goes to the mid ..read more

I hurt my right ankle/achilles in December so I’m just starting to train myself in taekwondo again. As a part of my training I do shaddow sparring, so I thought a fun way of posting more regularly here (and YouTube) would be to present different combinations that I like (and you can try out yourself).  This week and the first combo is supposed to be a Jab-Cross-Shuffle into lead leg front kick. The jab works as a range finder, the cross is supposed to be a power shot and the shuffle step is done to adapt to what an opponent is doing (in this case backing out of range). Try it out ..read more

If you haven't already read my previous posts on the Yedo 24 Se you might want to check them out. I have written about the history of the Yedo system (click here to read more) and I have also provided the historical illustrations and translations of the different forms (click here to read the post). I have since writing that studied more, and I am now very happy to have a rudimentary knowledge of all 24 forms. That means that I can continue this series for a very long while. Again, if you as a reader feel that this blog is starting to contain too much swordstuffythingy please let me know. If ..read more

Geom or Do? How language changes in martial arts

Hi there :-) I have been going full Muyedobotongji rabbit hole these last few months :-P I have posted a lot of stuff on facebook, and one of the things I wrote was that the Sang H. Kim's translation of the Muyedobotongji is a wonderful resource, but it does contain flaws and errors, and the biggest "flaw" for me was that he did not include any Hanja or Hangul for any of the Korean terms. This means that you get quite a few paragraphs containing interesting and vital information that comes out as pure guibberish. The section that annoyed me at that time of writing was in the Yedo chapter wh ..read more
