2 Hours Classes
SEVEN HILLS TAE KWON DO
More than your average tae kwon do
As such our 2 hour class consist of the following:
Methods of Exercise:
Floor exercise designed to warm and limber up the body as students work basic techniques back and forth across the floor. These techniques are put into combinations format and single movements.
Here the student focuses on the myriad of kicking techniques found in the taekwondo system; both single kick and combinations.
Bag Work (modern training):
Here the student develops power in his/her strikes. We use mitts (gloves) and wraps which enables the student to hit longer (time) and harder with minimum risk to the students body. Unlike the older style of training which use Markiwara striking boards, by using modern methods and equipment we are able to make quicker gains in less time while maintaining the safety practices.
A form is a prearranged sequence of martial techniques that are performed either with or without the use of a weapon. In traditional dojang (training gymnasiums) hyeong are used primarily as a form of interval training that is useful in developing mussels, proper kinetics and mental and physical fortitude. Hyeong may resemble combat, but are artistically non-combative and woven together so as to be an effective conditioning tool.
Step Sparring (also called Pre-Arranged Sparring) is a two person sparring drill in which an attacker and defender pre-arrange a sequence of attacks and blocks. Step Sparring can be run as drills of 1-Step, 2-Step, 3-Step or more.
Although commonly referred as self-defense, taekwondo self-defense training deals primarily with grabs, locks, chokes and grappling techniques. Here students are taught both how to apply techniques properly as well as escape techniques.
