1 Step

Tae Kwon Do 1 Step Sparring

One Step sparring introduces a more reactionary response to a single attacking technique – a mid section punch

Students are encouraged to explore techniqes that are realistic and which work for them. The sequences given below are for guidance only, and although they may be taught by your instructors, they will not be required for gradings. When One Step Sparring is assessed in gradings, the instructors will be looking for speed, timing, distancing and realism.

All of the one step sparring sequences start with both the attacker and defender in parallel ready stance (narani junbi sogi).
The first attack is a single right handed mid section obverse punch in walking stance.
Both parties then return to parallel ready stance before the second attack, a single left handed mid section obverse punch in walking stance.

Before the right handed attack, when the attacker is ready, he or she shouts, or kihaps. The defender then kihaps when he or she is ready, and at this point the attacker steps forward and punches. After the return to parallel ready stance, the left handed attack is executed without any additional kihaps
