Whether in a high risk area, such as the inner city, or relatively orderly and peaceful places like Alexandria and Woodbridge, Taekwando, Jeet Kune Do and similar martial arts moves can come in handy in cases of emergencies such as muggings and bullying.
The Need For Self-Defense
Would you ever really need to learn self-defense moves in a quiet place such as Northern Virginia’s Woodbridge? Taekwando and other martial arts disciplines teach you that when it comes to self-defense, it’s good to know some of the basic moves, yet you hope you never have to use them.
Still, the fact that martial arts are taught means that there are times when they may be needed once in a while. Say, for instance, that you’ve come from a late shift and have to walk down a dark valley somewhere in the outskirts of Alexandria or Woodbridge. Taekwando moves- the most basic ones- can spell the difference between getting home confidently and safely or being nervous and perhaps drawing attention to yourself.
Here are a few of the basic Taekwando moves one can use in emergencies.
Avoid and Evade
Whether in Seoul or Woodbridge, Taekwando basics are the same, and often take the form of very simple moves. And when it comes to self-defense, students are taught that the first rule is to avoid the attack. Get out of the way. This is why in most martial arts the first thing one learns is footwork. In many cases of an attack, a simple sidestep will be sufficient to throw your attacker off balance, and allow you the advantage.
The next move one needs to make after getting out of the way of a fist or an attack is the block. The most common move, after stepping sideways out of harms way, is to block the punch with an open, relaxed hand. The more relaxed you are, the more effective the block will be.
After avoiding being hit and blocking the punch, the next step is to make sure one stays safe. There are two ways to do this- the most obvious one, of course, is to run fast to safety. This is not always possible, especially if you are cornered, and cannot get to the nearest police station or somewhere you can call the authorities in Alexandria or Woodbridge. Taekwando training comes in handy in this situation, especially since chances are your attacker is now even angrier at being blocked and more set on completing the attack. You will need to make sure you are in control. One way to ensure this is to grab the attacker’s wrist and push it upward, while keeping your body balanced in a solid stance, with the other hand poised to strike.
Still, simple moves are often not very simple at all, especially in the case of an emergency such as an attempted mugging. This is why whether you’re in a big city like New York or a smaller, quieter place like Woodbridge, Taekwando training will come in handy in order to achieve the awareness, grace and movement to pull it off effectively. Training in a Taekwando and other martial arts school, with expert instructors can help. With time, practise and expert training, simple self-defense moves (and even more advanced techniques) can help keep you safe.
