I’m going to be showing you the switching technique in Tae Kwon Do. Now, a switching technique looks like this. I’m in a fighting stance, and I’m just going to switch my legs and change the stance this way. I was on the right leg back. Now I’m on the left leg back. One more time, I switch. And I like to key up. So you could use this as a little feinting motion and do one of the basic, basic foot works.
Now, I like to train with hand target and I’m going to do a switch roundhouse kick, so it’s going to look like this. I switch and bang and I pull the kick. One more time. This way. Now, you can throw other kicks, such as X kick. So, I’m just going to hold. Switch. X kick. We can also do switch, pull a roundhouse kick. When you do a switch, make sure your shoulder is square. Bang. Also, we can do a switch spinning hook kick. So I’m here. Switch. Like that. So, one more time. Switch. Spinning hook kick. And position yourself. I like to use a switch technique because it sort of confuses your opponent a little bit. One thing that you should never do is always just stand still. So, again, just bouncing like this, fighting like that, doing nothing might get you caught with a kick. So, again, you like to apply some foot work. Again, one of the basics is with the stance. So I could go and pull the kick. Now, you can add more than one foot work to it. So I could do a step forward, check, switch kick. And, bang, pull the kick. So there’s a million possibilities with the foot works. So, again, with the target, I can check and switch, too. So I bounce, switch, and pull that fast kick.
