Taekwondo Bible, Vol.1  
<<Division 5. Offense and Defence>>


  Chapter 33.
  d
Taekwondo Composed of Offense and Defence   
 
 

"What is the mind Taekwondo needs?"

"Attacking motion needs attacking mind while defending motion needs defending mind. Therefore, its essence is the mind to suppress him."


 

Taekwondo is composed of offenses and defenses. Offense or defense is delivering minds to each other between you and your opponent. Hands and feet, body and weapon mediate this interaction. Nothing can be Taekwondo without offenses and defenses, and the Taekwondo stops being what it is right away without delivering minds.

Then, what is the delivering minds as offense or defense in Taekwondo? Offense of Taekwondo is delivering a mind of intending to ruin your opponent's intention while defense of Taekwondo is delivering your mind in order to protect what you intend. Each of both is not different fundamentally from the other. And, offense is making him opposed to the world in this delivering minds while defense is making yourself harmonized with the world. Thus nor is each of the both contradictory to the other.
