THEORY

TYPICAL THEORY FOR 2ND KUPS

 

Theory for your 2nd Kup grading typically consists of 3 more questions relating to the training that you have done so far

 

THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS ARE:-

 

What is the meaning of your pattern and how many movements does it have?

Where are you hitting with an upwards punch?

Where are you hitting with a downwards knifehand strike?

Give a brief history of Tae Kwon-Do

What is the Korean for slide and why use it within your pattern?

Name 3 patterns with releasing movements and how do they differ?

What is the purpose of a pushing block?

The three punches towards the end of the pattern in L-stance, are they obverse or reverse punches, and why?

Explain what is happening when you work the low block and middle block together from your pattern?

Name as many different punches as you can?

What does the colour red signify?

 

 

Remember that these are just examples of questions you might be asked at a grading, a student should have a good knowledge of their theory before going to grade.
