Taekwondo coaching notes

Sort of keeping informal diary of what was done but generally noting – all sessions have been outside

First session:

Slightly longer warm up and stretch with explanation

Reassurance re not following, slow, stiff, no need to learn everything at once…

If attendees in tight trousers:

– no running, skip, knees up/behind warmup – walking & foot cross over side to side only

– no pattern and front snap, half turn only

Blocks, strikes, stances and explanations

How to hold pad

Can use tree if no wall for stretches

2nd – 5th session

As above where applicable

Emphasise foot angles, positioning including turns

By 5th session

– ask them to shout if not already doing

– holding kick paddle facing partner if not already doing

If not many attendees can try double side kicks

Moving around in drills not just practice forward/back in lines, do the unexpected

Intro to one step sparring and 1st poomsae movements.

6th session onwards

Sparring – introduce body armour and sparring, start to adjust force accordingly but give extra space/time.

Drills – introduce reverse kicks if confident with front kicks.
