Taekwondo Grappling & Ground Fighting Techniques

While Taekwondo focuses mainly on kicking and punching techniques, many students want to learn grappling techniques in order to add a "ground fighting" component to their overall martial arts knowledge. Therefore, we have created a section to help Taekwondo students learn about various grappling and ground fighting techniques (i.e. throws, pins, sweeps, escapes, etc.). However, these videos are for informational purposes only. All grappling techniques should be practiced under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor (as people can get hurt if these techniques are used improperly). IMO - Consider focusing on grappling escapes, counters and defenses so you can get back on your feet in order to use the power... and distance of your Taekwondo kicks and punches.
