We look at some reasons why drills may not be the best approach, how context of the drills are everything and touching on some skill acquisition science to base some views of efficient Taekwondo training.   Chapters  0:00 Intro 1:00 Today's Video 4:03 What Is A Drill?

Quick Bits Ep 5: The Role Of Emotions In Competition
Emotions - Emotions certainly feature in our competition/training journeys. Usually the memorable times are at the either end of each extreme. Emotions are so vital as they give us ques to take action on. These emotions are almost like the dashboard on a car which signal there is something out of sync under the hood. This allows us to take action in time before things get out of hand. It's the same principle with emotions, whether its nerves, fear, butterflies or whatever, these are all responses to drawing out attention to something that's going on. So what does that mean for us? Well the key is the awareness of the problem under the hood. Once we can identify this, we can then use various techniques to bring them back under control. Emotional control is the key, we don't necessarily need to get rid of a particular emotion but control it enough so it doesn't cloud of judgement, thoughts and subsequently our actions which may result in a unfavourable performance/outcome. We need to have systems in place as a go to when emotions cloud of rational thinking, a blueprint we can follow. Everyone has an answer but it's not easy to give yourself the correct advice. This is due to emotions a lot of the time. This process is all part of building a mental toolkit for performance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TKD Coach Academy - Helping you to reach your full TKD potential, in less time with the best methods!

Quick Bits Ep 3: The value of a warning in ITF TKD Sparring
Warnings also have value beyond their direct impact on the scoreboard. We can use warnings (particularly traveling) to increase pressure and build momentum, improving ring position and bringing your opponent closer to a lost point. We can also use a warning to interrupt our opponents momentum (if we’re careful to observe the rules) and slow the match down for a moment. We can take advantage of re-starts to catch our opponent watching the scoreboard  or focusing on their coach rather than the opponent. We can even use our opponent’s shot selection preferences to force warnings, drawing a spin or retreating side kick for example. Warnings exist to protect the fighters and promote a desired style of play. The match should take place; on your feet, within the square, hitting legal targets, without undue celebration or gamesmanship and without employing obstructive tactics to deny scores. But of course sparring is a game and to be successful in any game you have to utilise all the avenues to victory as appropriate. That’s why we design scenarios and constraints to force us to evaluate the game state and make the correct decisions under pressure when we train around warnings in sparring.

Quick Bits Ep 2: The importance of footwork for Defense in ITF TKD
Footwork is one of the major keys to defence and not conceding scores. This is especially the case in ITF TKD more than other combat sports such as boxing where leaning and covering are alternatives. However, this is not practical for ITF due to the speed of the sport and the not the mention the added threat of kicks as well as punches. This certainly eliminates the practicality of leaning as we have an additional two limbs to worry about.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is clear the rule set and scoring system make avoiding and moving the most valuable form of defence for ITF (apart from counter attacking of course).This is evident in high level events where it is clear the best form of defence is not to be within range and the hit and not be hit approach is quite a successful approach for a lot of competitors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The most elite defensive mastermind of combat are able to use footwork to their advantage in order to be able to quickly transition from defence to attack and are usually phenomenal counter attackers. Footwork facilitates the ability to link distance and timing to be in a position to not get hit while still set up opportunities to fire back themselves. It is said the best defence fighters are just outside of range of being hit while close enough to land themselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ TKD Coach Academy - Helping you to reach your full TKD potential, in less time with the best methods!

Quick Bits Ep 1: Corning/ Ringside Coaching
Over coaching is trying to do it all yourself. The coach is a supplement to the athlete, it's not about having a video controller in your hand where you control every action and decision the athlete makes. In ITF the bouts are quick, the coach is more about noticing strategic adjustments for the athlete because they are often too involved in the thick of it. You are a facilitator! You are there to aid your athlete not take over the show. It's not about you, 90% of people watching don't even notice you're there. Giving your athletes all the answers actually makes them become more dependent. We want to develop athletes that can perform without you just as well.

Discipline in Taekwon-Do & Martial Arts Training
Mr Adrian Byrne discusses the importance of discipline in Martial Arts training in order to progress towards your training goals.   Last night we had a discussion about what Discipline looks like in Taekwon-Do. Sometimes the perception is that discipline is standing in line and doing what you’re told, being a good robot! Actually, we feel it’s a much broader concept that is fundamental to achieving success in Taekwon-Do initially and has a much wider range of real life applications.   Our daily routines include turning up to class; prepared to train, properly dressed, with all our equipment, with tasks or chores completed (like homework), fuelled to train, well rested and focused on the task at hand.   In class we repeat key activities; line up, bow, warm up, stretch, practice fundamentals, touch gloves, thank our partners, tidy away our equipment, high 5 or clap at the end.   All of these are small things that are easy to do once but also easy to forget, leave out or ignore. Discipline is about doing things consistently well for a long period of time, even when; it’s hard, you don’t want to, other things are more interesting. Initially we build good habits around small things that are easily done, but when these are done consistently and we have a foundation that is solid we can build on these and aim for greater things.   Our students felt that discipline helps us be organised and calm, get more done and have better classes. Not a bad message.
