|After initial neck strike, I move to perform a takedown by controlling the arm and flexing the head back|
Discussion on secret FB group Study of Taekwondo by my friend Orjan Nilsen said that these would be "[termed] 'byonhwa' applications. Byonhwa meaning variation ...". My response is "By variation, most instructors would take a particular technique and modify it a bit at a time to help practitioners learn it better. This particular video shows counter techniques that vary wildly from the initial technique. My assumption is that focus on the technique is a learning oriented activity; as you come into conflict with the opponent you need to be more fluid or sensitive - dependent on the actions the opponent takes. This it is not about technique or variation but the reading of the opponent which is the takeaway here."
|First 'variation' was to effect a counter takedown using a neck crank.|
|Next counter takedown was to use a big wheel motion grabbing neck and leg.|
|Third variation of counter takedown was to perform a neck throw.|
|Another counter takedown was to manipulate centre of gravity by pushing on hip and pulling back on shoulder or neck.|
