We are excited to announce the introduction of the new iTKD Sparring Drills in 2012. Sparring World Champion Carl van Roon has developed an eight level syllabus that covers all the basics of good sparring skills. It was further developed in consultation with Master McPhail and is now approved by the Technical Advisor Group.
The drills will be rolled out this February at the Update Courses, giving Instructors an extra set of tools to assist in the teaching of free sparring. Instructors will be provided with the written guide and those that attend the course will be given access to a private You Tube video of the complete syllabus.
Each of the eight levels progressively introduces new skills, then followed by creative semi-free drills that enable the student to practice in realistic scenarios. As the student shows competency in the drills they can be moved up to the next level.
Some of the skills / drills include:
Thanks to Carl van Roon for his time and expertise for developing this syllabus for iTKD.
