Taekwondo black belt shows things you MUST know to protect your woman
When thinking about a self-defense situation, you already have a couple of things going for you: one, you are reading this article so self-defense is something that you at least think about, and two, I would say that 90% of the population has no idea how to fight.
Let’s be honest, you will not be put into a self-defense situation when you are prepared. If you are aware of your surroundings, cognizant of the behavior of those around you, and prepared for an attack; more than likely you will not be attacked.
Perpetrators tend to prey on those that they perceive as weak, timid, and scared. Therefore, if you are attacked, you more than likely will not be prepared for it and if you have a woman with you then the code of chivalry insists that you protect her.
Don’t have the foggiest idea where to begin?
One word, three syllables: Taekwondo.
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art, characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques.
Taekwondo was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by various martial artists by incorporating elements of karate and Chinese martial arts with indigenous Korean martial arts traditions such as Taekkyeon, Subak, and Gwonbeop. The oldest governing body for taekwondo is the Korea Taekwondo Association (KTA), formed in 1959 through a collaborative effort by representatives from the nine original kwans, or martial arts schools, in Korea.
The main international organizational bodies for Taekwondo today are the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF), founded by Choi Hong Hi in 1966, and the partnership of the Kukkiwon and World Taekwondo Federation (WTF), founded in 1972 and 1973 respectively by the Korea Taekwondo Association. Gyeorugi ([kjʌɾuɡi]), a type of full-contact sparring, has been an Olympic event since 2000.
