Taekwondo Self-Defense Techniques
This page provides you with free
Taekwondo self-defense techniques
that will help you to deal
with real-life situations (such as someone grabbing you in a
headlock). In Taekwondo, you will be taught techniques that come from a
variety of sources (because as my Taekwondo Master likes to states "All
martial arts lead eventually to the same point"). Therefore, I
have collected a number of free self-defense
online video tutorials from a wide range of martial arts
including Kung Fu, Aikido, Krav Maga, Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Judo, MMA,
Hapkido and of course Taekwondo. For martial arts self-defense techniques
geared towards women, please visit our
Defense for Women page.
* However, please DO NOT
practice these Taekwondo self-defense techniques on your brother or sister
(as someone can get hurt)! Only practice these techniques at
your Taekwondo school under the supervision of your

Step Self-Defense Moves - These self-defense techniques are
taught by a Korean
Taekwondo Master. I always think of the "One Step" method as
Taekwondo self-defense with training wheels. You learn the basics before
moving up to more aggressive, complex & faster Taekwondo self-defense techniques. This system of
training is used in many Taekwondo schools.

Martial Arts & Taekwondo Self-Defense Against
You do not want to remain on the
ground during a self-defense situation because an attacker's buddies
might stomp on you, the attacker may be an experienced ground
fighter, etc. You want to train at least to be able to break free
and get back on your feet in order to fight back or escape.
Vital Areas -
Groin Attacks - In a self-defense situation, you can target
an opponent's groin with a punch, kick or knee strike.
Self-Defense & Joint Locks - For when
you want to control and subdue an opponent versus hurt an opponent
(i.e. during a confrontation at school or work)
Self-Defense Against Weapons - Any self-defense
an armed opponent should only be used as a last resort
(because it is
extremely difficult to beat an armed opponent). Attempt other
options first (i.e. run away from danger).
