AREA 3 - ONE STEP 

                                                     

EXHIBIT VARIOUS BLOCKING, KICKING, STRIKING AND PUNCHING TECHNIQUES ALSO MAKING GOOD USE OF WRIST AND ARM LOCKS. TAKE DOWNS ARE DESIRABLE BUT NOT COMPULSORY.

 

EACH PAIR WILL BE INFORMED WHICH STUDENT WILL ATTACK FIRST
WHILE FACING EACH OTHER IN READY STANCE.

 

THAT STUDENT WILL THEN KIAP AND WILL WAIT FOR THE DEFENDER TO KIAP BACK BEFORE PUNCHING TO THE FACE RIGHT FIST FIRST IN FRONT STANCE, FOLLOWED BY A LEFT FIST STRIKE.

 

THE ONLY KIAPS AFTER THE INITIAL 2 ARE WHEN THE DEFENDER KIAPS WHEN STRIKING, PUNCHING OR KICKING.

 

THE DEFENDER THEN BECOMES THE ATTACKER AND THE SEQUENCE IS
REPEATED.

 

THE DEFENDER MUST USE DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES ON EACH SIDE
DURING A SEQUENCE.

 

WHERE THE DEFENDER ON OCCASSIONS WISHES TO DEAL WITH THE ATTACK FROM A FIGHTING STANCE BECAUSE A KICKING TECHNIQUE WILL BE USED INITIALLY, HE OR SHE SHOULD IMMEDIATELY MOVE INTO A FIGHTING STANCE INSTEAD OF A JOOMBI SEOGI AFTER HIS OR HER PARTNER HAS COMPLETED THEIR DEFENSIVE RESPONSES TO THIER ATTACKS. HOWEVER, WHERE THIS IS DONE, ANOTHER TECHNIQUE SHOULD ALSO BE USED IN FIGHTING STANCE ON THE OTHER SIDE.

EACH PAIR WILL BE INFORMED WHICH STUDENT WILL BE TESTED FIRST. THEY WILL THEN WORK THROUGH ALL THEIR TECHNIQUES IN ONE SEQUENCE BEFORE THEIR PARTNER WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO START THEIRS.

THE SAFETY OF THEIR PARTNER BY PERFORMING THE TECHNIQUES WITH APPROPRIATE CONTROL.
