♚Hand/Punching attacks♚





Spinning Backfist


Superman punch

Cobra punch

Falcon punch

Jumping punch

Diving punch

A closed fist may be jabbed out directly to strike with the forefist knuckles. This is a suitable position for general

punches to soft areas of the body. Without protection, it is inadvisable to strike the bony face as fingers are likely to

get broken on the hard temple and jaw bones.

Hammer fist
A closed fist may be brought down in a hammering motion to strike with the underneath. Such a strike can obliterate an

opponent's nose, making it near impossible for him to retaliate.

A Son Deung clenched hand is swung backwards into the face of an opponent. The back of the hand makes contact and the

momentum garnered in the swing makes this a powerful strike. Spinning backfists are a knockout punch and banned in most

Taekwondo competitions.

Knife Hand
'Sonkal' is the Taekwondo name for a 'Karate Chop', i.e. where an open hand is hammered down to make impact with the

underside. A Ridge Hand is the opposite, where the top of the open hand strikes. These are commonly made to the side of

the neck.

Jumeok can be used to strike vulnerable areas of the body such as pressure points. Used in self-defence and not

competition sparring, one and two finger strikes are made to the eyeballs. Four finger strikes engaging the tips of the

outstretched hand (known as Spear hand) can be made to vital points in the neck.

Eomji is a fist with the thumb protruding over the top. This is a formidable weapon in pressure point striking. Vulnerable

areas can be targeted all over the body such as the sternum, the spaces in between the ribs and other nerve clusters.

Palm Heel
a classic self-defence strike where the hand is pulled back to engage the base of the palm in an upwards thrusting strike.

This is particularly dangerous if applied to the base of the nose or chin and can result in death. Obviously banned in

competition Taekwondo.

Four-knuckle strike
This is a fist shape particular to the Asian martial arts. Instead of closing the fist completely, the fingers are held

out and only the knuckles are bent, thereby presenting the upper set of knuckles as the striking surface. This fist is

used for breaking boards as the smaller surface area concentrates the punches power. In self-defence, it may be used to

purposefully break an attacker's jaw.

Eagle strike
In this strike, the fingers all touch together, and the hand is pointed down, exposing the top of the wrist,which is then

swung upward to strike the underside of the jaw. If done properly, this strike can easily fracture the jawbone, and is

usually banned from competitions due to the extreme danger. If done improperly, however, the practitioner may well break

his wrist.

Tiger Claw
A strike using the space between the index finger and thumb. Fingers are made rigid, and the attack is usually directed

towards the neck/trachea. Serves as a way to incapacitate an opponent for a few seconds.

Pincer Hand
A strike which uses thumb and forefinger to strike opponent's throat. In this technique a fist is closed except thumb and

forefinger which are fully extended outwards.

Scissor Finger
A fist in which forefinger and middle finger is extended out as if to dig someone's eye. Similar to Pincer hand except

that the forefinger and middle finger is extended outwards.

Chestnut Fist
Similar to normal fist except that first three knuckles are pushed outward slightly with thumb.

Elbow/Forearm attacks
Elbow Slash

Horizontal Elbow

Uppercut Elbow

Forward Elbow Thrust

Reverse Horizontal Elbow

Spinning Elbow

Elbow Chop

Double Elbow Chop

Mid-Air Elbow Strike

Elbow Strike (palgup chigi)
Forearm is folded inwards towards the body and the strike is delivered with the outside of the forearm or elbow.

Tae Kwon Do also makes use of reverse and front elbow strikes.

Front Snap Kick (ap chagi)
This is a very linear kick. The practitioner raises the knee to the waist, pulls the toes back and quickly extends the

foot at the target. It is also known as the snap kick. The front kick is one of the first kicks learned in TKD; if

mastered it can become one of the most powerful. This technique is more meant to be used to push the attacker away, but

can injure.

Side Thrusting Kick (yeop chagi)
A very powerful kick, first the practitioner simultaneously raises the knee and rotates the body 90 degrees, while doing

that they extend their leg. In WTF style taekwondo, this technique should strike with the outside edge of the foot, though

using the heel may provide more force if used in sparring.

Roundhouse Kick Turning Kick or Round Kick (dollyeo chagi)
The practitioner raises the knee, turns the hips, pivots on the non-kicking foot, and snaps the kick horizontally into the

target at a 80 to 90-degree angle, either with the instep or with the ball of the foot (in the latter case, with the toes

pulled back out of the way as in a front kick). The latter technique requires a great deal of flexibility in the heel.

Back kick\Horse kick (dwit chagi)
Here the practitioner turns the body away from the target and pushes the back leg straight toward the target, hitting it

with the heel while watching over the shoulder. The turning motion helps to give this kick a lot of power. Without proper

care, you can "spin out" and lose your balance from using this attack.

Reverse Side Kick A.K.A. Spinning Side Kick (bandae yeop chagi)
Similar to the back kick, here the body turns further, allowing the heel to hit the target with the foot pointing to the

side as in a regular side kick, instead of more downward as in a true back kick.

Hook Kick (huryeo chagi)
A less popular kick traditionally, it has found increasing favor in modern competitions. The practitioner raises the knee

in a fashion similar to the roundhouse kick, then extends the foot outward then snaps it around in a dorsal arc, with the

heel as the intended striking weapon.

Axe Kick/Downward kick (naeryeo chagi)
Another kick that has increased in popularity due to sparring competitions. The leg is raised usually from the outside of

the body like an outside crescent kick. then the leg is pulled down with the heel pointed downward. It is typically

targeted toward the head, shoulder, or chest and requires significant flexibility to employ effectively. This kick is best

used against the collar bone, which can readily break from this attack. the setup in the initial raise of the kick can

also be done from the inside, or middle (straight up and down.)

Crescent Kick (an chagi/bakkat chagi)
There are two variations of this kick: the outer crescent and the inner crescent. In the outer, the practitioner raises

the extended leg as high as possible, and slightly up across the body, (a bit across the centerline of the body), then

sweeping outward to the side, in a circular movement. In the inner, the motions are the same but the direction of the kick

changes, this time originating from the outside of the body, heading towards the inside, or centerline of the body. These

kicks are also called "Inside Kick" and "Outside Kick" at some taekwondo schools, and "Inside-Outside" and "Outside-

Inside" at others.

All kicks can be executed as jump kicks, spin kicks, jump spin kicks or multi-rotational spin kicks. Also, all can be

performed by the front or rear leg in a given stance.

Spin Kicks (bandae dollyeo chagi)
There are several spinning kicks that involve the rotation of the entire body and head before the kick is released.

Spinning kicks include:
the back pivot kick (dweel chagi)

spinning hook kick (dweel huryeo chagi)

spinning axe kick

butterfly kick

returning kick

360 turning kick

Tornado kick/360 kick/Screw kick/windmill kick (on mondollyo chagi)
The exponent steps forward then spins in the direction of their back leg while raising their knee and jumping to perform a

spinning inside crescent kick in midair. the alternate version involve an initial round or crescent kick, while the back

foot pivots. rotating the body in a 360 motion, the back foot comes up as a knee and swings across giving the momentum for

your attacking leg to do a roundhouse kick or an inside crescent kick.

Jump Kicks (ttwieo chagi):
Steven Ho: Jump Spin Hook Kick
There are also many kicks that involve jumping before their execution. These include jumping front kick (ee dan ap chagi),

jumping side kick (idan yeop chagi), flying side kick, jumping axe kick, jumping roundhouse (ee dan dollyeo chagi),

jumping spinning hook kick, jumping spinning roundhouse kick, butterfly kick or "shuffle jump kick," jumping (or counter)

back kick, and jump spinning side kick.

Normally, jumping kicks involve pulling up the back leg to help gain height during the jump and then performing the kick

itself with the front leg. About any kick can be put into a Jump, a spin, or a jump-spin. flying kicks, obvious for the

name, fly in a forward motion, rather than jumping straight up and down like a jump kick. first, for a flying kick, you

must run ( your kicking leg must be last foot to run) and run-jump into the air doing the kick you want. usually, the side

peircing kick is preferred as a flying move.

Advanced Kicks
There are a variety of kicks that can be used in combination or stem out from a simple kick to create more difficult ones.

Some of these include 540 Kick (One spins 1½ times in mid-air and does a kick, usually a back spinning hook kick) and

Triple Aero Kicks (One does round house kick, back spinning hook kick, and another round house kick in mid-air).

Fast Kicks
Also, many kicks can be employed using a fast kick style. The practitioner shuffles the back leg forward to the front leg,

and the front leg comes up and kicks closer to the enemy than the practitioner had been before execution. This can be used

with side kick, roundhouse kick, front kick, hook kick, and axe kick.

Straight Kick

Roundhouse Kick

Diagonal Kick

Half-Shin, Half-Knee Kick

Spinning Heel Kick

Down Roundhouse Kick

Axe Heel Kick

Jump Kick

Step-Up Kick

Straight Knee Strike

Diagonal Knee Strike

Curving Knee Strike

Horizontal Knee Strike

Knee Slap

Knee Bomb

Flying Knee

Step-Up Knee Strike

arm clinch
One or both hands controls the inside of the defender's arm(s) and where the second hand if free is in the front clinch

position. This clinch is used to briefly control the opponent before applying a knee strike or throw

side clinch
One arm passes around the front of the defender with the attacker's shoulder pressed into the defender's arm pit and the

other arm passing round the back which allows the attacker to apply knee strikes to the defender's back or to throw the

defender readily.

low clinch
Both controlling arms pass under the defender's arms, which is generally used by the shorter of two opponents.

One hand around the rear of the neck is used to briefly clinch an opponent before a strike

The foot-thrust or literally "foot jab" is one of the techniques in muay Thai. It is mainly used as a defensive technique

to control distance or block attacks. Foot-thrusts should be thrown quickly but yet with enough force to knock an opponent

off balance.

Straight Foot-Thrust

Sideways Foot-Thrust

Reverse Foot-Thrust

Slapping Foot-Thrust

Jumping Foot-Thrust

Taekwondo blocks known as Makgi are used to stop and deflect an incoming attack. They engage various parts of the arm with

the hand and are held in different positions such as knife-hand, closed fist etc. Each block is suitable for a particular

kind of attack and may be combined with another punch or kick to make a counter-attack.

Single Forearm Block
Wae Sun Palmok is used to deflect an attack (usually a kick) made at the torso. Starting up near the opposite shoulder,and

the leading hand is projected down and across the body to deflect the kick with the forearm.

Low Block
Najundi Makgi is used to defend against low attacks to the torso or legs. This is one of the most basic Taekwondo blocks

and one of the first things a beginner will learn. The lead forearm is bent and raised to shoulder height, snapping the

arm down straight with the palm facing the ground, which blocks any incoming low kicks.

Rising Block
Chookya Makgi is another basic Taekwondo block, used to defend against overhead attacks to the head and shoulders. The arm

is bent and raised above the head, and the underside of the forearm absorbs the impact of the blow, which may be painful

but is better than it connecting with your head or delicate clavicle. This block is used to defend against Hammerfists,

Axe Kicks and overhead strikes with blunt instruments.

Palm Block
Sonbadak Naeryo Makgi is a standard block used to deflect incoming kicks and punches. The open hand is raised up to

shoulder height and thrust directly down to meet the attackers limb. The heel of the hand makes contact with the

attacker’s forearm in case of a punch, or shin in case of a kick. Although simple, it requires a lot of partner training

to get the timing of this Taekwondo block correct.

Knife Hand Block
The hand is kept in a knife hand position to block attacks to the torso. As the front arms sweeps down in an arc from the

inside to the outside of the body, the back hand is simultaneously pulled back to the back hip and ready for a counter


Double Forearm Block
This is a more advanced Taekwondo block, designed to be used against a strong attack to the center of the body. Standing

sideways, the lead forearm blocks the attack with the fist closed. The second arm provides further support, linking into

the crook of the arm so both forearms are at a 90 degree angle to the body.

Double Knife Hand Block
With the hands held open in the knife hand position, a powerful kick aimed at the solar plexus can be successfully

blocked. Both hands come across the body, intersecting at the forearms and providing a firm defence.

Nine Block
This is a black belt leveled block and the first time it is usually used is around the black belt form.The person blocks

their chest with one hand and stomach region with the other.The shape of the block forms a number nine when executed

correctly.Both arms are bent at a 45 degree angle as well and it leaves little space open in the mid region of the

defenders body.Your hand when this move is executed correctly should also be above your groin on the bottom and next to

you opposite shoulder with the top hand.

Upper Block
Also known as the Ulgul Makgi. The one using the block first keeps their fist sideways at the stomach or torso. They then

rise the fist up to their head, deflecting the attack. Any attack made at the upper part of the body is blocked if timed

correcttly using this block.

Defenses in muay Thai are categorized in six groups:

defender's hard blocks to stop a strike in its path so preventing it reaching its target (e.g. the shin block described in

more detail below)

defender's soft parries to change the direction of a strike (e.g. a downwards tap to a jab) so that it misses the target

moving a body part out of the way or range of a strike so the defender remains in range for a counter-strike. For example,

the defender moves their front leg backwards to avoid the attacker's low kick, then immediately counters with a roundhouse

kick. Or the defender might lay their head back from the attacker's high roundhouse kick then counter-attack with a side


moving the body out of the way or range of a strike so the defender has to move close again to counter-attack, e.g.

defender jumping laterally or back from attacker's kicks

Pre-empting an attack e.g. with defender using disruptive techniques like jab, foot-thrust or low roundhouse kick,

generally called a "leg kick"(to the outside or inside of the attacker's front leg, just above the knee) as the attacker

attempts to close distance

Defender catching a strike (e.g. catching an roundhouse kick to the body) or countering it before it lands (e.g.

defender's low kick to the supporting leg below as the attacker initiates a high roundhouse kick).

There are several basic maneuvers a boxer can use in order to evade or block punch

Slipping rotates the body slightly so that an incoming punch passes harmlessly next to the head. As the opponent's punch

arrives, the boxer sharply rotates the hips and shoulders. This turns the chin sideways and allows the punch to "slip"

past. Muhammad Ali was famous for extremely fast and close slips, as was an early Mike Tyson.

A slipper will also most likely be a good counter puncher. Most of the time a slipper will immediately strike their

opponent back. They also will slip by ducking their head. A slipper will practice on improving their head speed by working

out in a gym with head weights. Most head weight consists of a strap that attaches to your head with a weight attached to

the end of the weight. IF a slippers eve gets caught while slipping, there is a good chance that he or she will be going

down because most of the time he or she won't be expecting to be hit.
Sway or fade – To anticipate a punch and move the upper body or head back so that it misses or has its force appreciably

lessened. Also called "rolling with the punch" or " Riding The Punch".

Duck or break
To drop down with the back straight so that a punch aimed at the head glances or misses entirely.

Bob and Weave
Bobbing moves the head laterally and beneath an incoming punch. As the opponent's punch arrives, the boxer bends the legs

quickly and simultaneously shifts the body either slightly right or left. Once the punch has been evaded, the boxer

"weaves" back to an upright position, emerging on either the outside or inside of the opponent's still-extended arm. To

move outside the opponent's extended arm is called "bobbing to the outside". To move inside the opponent's extended arm is

called "bobbing to the inside". Joe Frazier, Jack Dempsey, Mike Tyson and Rocky Marciano were masters of bobbing and


Parrying or blocking uses the boxer's shoulder, hands or arms as defensive tools to protect against incoming attacks. A

block generally receives a punch while a parry tends to deflect it. A "palm" or "cuff" is a block which intentionally

takes the incoming punch on that portion of the defender's glove.

The Cover-Up
Covering up is the last opportunity (other than rolling with a punch) to avoid an incoming strike to an unprotected face

or body. Generally speaking, the hands are held high to protect the head and chin and the forearms are tucked against the

torso to impede body shots. When protecting the body, the boxer rotates the hips and lets incoming punches "roll" off the

guard. To protect the head, the boxer presses both fists against the front of the face with the forearms parallel and

facing outwards. This type of guard is weak against attacks from below.

The Defensive Clinch
Clinching is a form of trapping or a rough form of grappling and occurs when the distance between both fighters has closed

and straight punches cannot be employed. In this situation, the boxer attempts to hold or "tie up" the opponent's hands so

he is unable to throw hooks or uppercuts. To perform a clinch, the boxer loops both hands around the outside of the

opponent's shoulders, scooping back under the forearms to grasp the opponent's arms tightly against his own body. In this

position, the opponent's arms are pinned and cannot be used to attack. Clinching is a temporary match state and is quickly

dissipated by the referee. Clinching is technically against the rules, and in amateur fights points are deducted fairly

quickly for it. It is unlikely, however, to see points deducted for a clinch in professional boxing.

Pressure point applications
In Taekwondo philosophy, the body has many sensitive areas that are susceptible to precise attack. These are known as

pressure points or ji ap sul. There are three types of pressure point that can induce one or a combination of the

following: pain, paralysis, or death. These can be targeted with gripping and/or striking in order to immobilize or cause

substantial pain to submit the opponent.

Known as too sul, Taekwondo practitioners can divert the opponent's force to their own advantage and throw him to the

ground. Once on the ground the practitioner has greater control over his adversary and can follow up with subsequent

controlling or finishing techniques.

Joint Locks
Otherwise known as kwan jyel sul in Taekwondo, these can be useful against armed attackers. Typically the attacking limb

is grabbed and then manipulated to cause immense pain in the adversary. Joint locks can be applied on any joint in the

body and are particularly useful for controlling an opponent who has been thrown to the ground.

Termination techniques
These are a range of strikes applied to an opponent downed by a previous throw or strike. Powerful downward traveling

kicks and hand strikes are used to make sure the opponent stays down.

Choking techniques
In Chil sik sul, the idea of applying a stranglehold is to deprive the attacker's brain of either oxygenated blood through

the carotid artery and/or oxygen for the lungs through the trachea. The Taekwondo practitioner uses leverage from his arm

and sometimes involves the attackers clothing in applying pressure to the sensitive neck area. Choke holds are

particularly dangerous and only taught to higher level Taekwondo students, as over exertion can crush the trachea or cause

sudden death.

Freeing techniques
Paegi are taught to Taekwondo students so that they can quickly free themselves and neutralise the danger of being grabbed

by an attacker. Competition demonstrations frequently involve one student grabbing another from behind. The science of

Taekwondo is equally concerned with defense as attack so proper freeing techniques must be learnt.
