Lesson Sequence Week of May 28, 1996
Week Objective: This week we continue falls and throws.
Please be very careful. Mr. Kim wants us to be especially careful so
that no one falls the wrong way and gets injured.
We are adding basic holds — throw and hold the opponent down. With
advanced students, you can use lock and choke.
Proper way to hold
* Your right arm is over opponents neck
* no gap between your bodies – tight with body your right side is to
the opponents ribs
* right arm under arm pit
* if they move follow them
* their head is by your right shoulder
* hold them sitting down and well leveraged.
Check the same points as last week:
Break fall
* your head or face never hits
* smooth roll
* slap mat really hard for a better break
Shoulder tackle
* the tackle is most important
* left foot equal to opponent right
* don’t move your right foot until you completely knock your opponent
off balance with the tackle
* well balance yourself
* knock off right leg in air
Hip throw
* as you go in your body must be perfect – from your knee up to
shoulder. Your right knee and thigh is inside your opponents right
knee and thigh. Your hip right into their groin. Your ribs and
shoulder right on their chest.
* well leverage
* lift them up
Start all classes with about 10-15 minutes of TKD
drills/techniques/exercises then go into falls.
For the 4:00PM, select from the 5:00PM as is appropriate for their
level of development. Check off what you accomplish with the 4:00PM
so that they get all the basic break falls and throws.
