Taekwondo Bible, Vol.3  
Chapter 2


    The Way of Mind   
 

12.

Beginners usually ask "what is the movement I have to make?" when they learn technique of Taekwondo. But the real question they should ask is “what should I think?” or “what should I intend?”

In most cases it is the movement that instructors teach and learners also learn. To say their method, they obtain a technique as a series of poses. And they correct their still poses for better technique. In the result, a simple technique is separated into pieces, swift action becomes slow and powerful movement gets into hesitation.

Instructors should suggest to their learners best methods and process with intuitive tips according to the level of their techniques. The content must be what the learners should intend in actions. As an instructor you should demand “try to kick the target as quickly as possible” if you see separation of their movements, and you should make him imagine opponent's body or movement if you see inexact motion.

In the center of the overall cases there is the principle of mind of Taekwondo. It is that attacking technique needs attacking mind, and defending technique needs defending mind.
