Dan level blocks (Foreword)

Now we are going into the dan level blocks section. the blocks in this section are more complexed and nuanced as compared to the colored belt blocks and I would highly reccommend the people learning to consult their coaches or apply for a lesson with me as these blocks are not easy and can be done wrong easily and videos can only do so much. Once again before we begin I would like to stress again that while doing these blocks, one should never bend one's wrist while doing the block but twist one's arm instead. The power that taekwondo exerts is through the power generated while twisting, be it the twist of the heels, hips or arms. This concept is crucial and is the main "backbone" of taekwondo So please keep this in mind while training.
