Last week was not what I expected it to be regarding the rain and its interruption to the normal routine. We were supposed to work on hand techniques and their associated one-steps last week and kicking techniques this week. My plan is to actually work both (hands and feet) this week.
Our three basic action stances are Front Stance, Horseriding Stance, and Fighting Stance. From these stances, we can perform all of our hand and foot techniques.
For hands, we will work on Low Block, High Block, Outside-In Block, Inside-out Block, and Center Punch. Most hand techniques have a twisting motion in them from the loaded position to the striking point. When you combine the twisting motion with hip rotation in your stance, you can generate great power.
One-Steps: 1) One Elbow, 2) Two Elbows, 3) Chop the Tree
For Kicking, we will work on Front Kick, Side Kick, Roundhouse Kick, and Back Kick. These are the 4 basic kicks, and 90% of the advanced kicking techniques we perform are based on these four kicks. They can be performed from any of our stances.
One-Steps: 1) The FRONT, 2) SIDE of the King, 3) is ROUND
