Jok Ki (족기 – Kicking Techniques) are the bread and butter of Korean Martial Arts. In the world of karate, Tang Soo Do’s differences are most apparent in kicking – dynamic, high, and arial. A flying side klick is on our association flag and seal! This week, we will introduce basic kicking and Il Soo Sik Jok Ki Dae Ryun (일 수식 족기 대련)— One Steps with Foot techniques.
Preparing for your Belt Test: We have 15 weeks until our first belt test. There is a great deal of work to accomplish between now and then. I expect each of you to practice at least twice a week outside of class. If you do not practice, you will not be ready for the test. You testing requirements are Knowledge (the written test), Basic Techniques, Hyungs, One-Steps, Sparring, Circular Drill, weapons (as applicable), SOAR Challenge, and Breaking (as applicable). Your written test information is your responsibility alone. We have a belt striping system (right side of belt) to ensure you have learned your required skills and are prepared for the test.
