Taekwondo Pattern Do-san: Nuts about Patterns


Taekwondo pattern Do-san has an interesting pre-cursor move to the upper block as seen in the previous Taekwondo pattern Dan-gun. The chukyo marki or upper block is from a punch downwards in front of the groin. It's a good move - placed at the pattern which introduces the front kick. Anytime you have an area which causes extreme pain, you'd better be ready to put a hand or fist in front of it (and a little under). This is especially so if you're further opening it up to attack. It's wishful thinking that your opponent will avoid kicking your groin, especially since the groin is an easy low risk target. Colin
