Left Foot Moves

Ilbo Matsogi One Step Sparring

Number 5

Step back on the left leg to form a left L-stance whilst performing an inward inside outer forearm block with the right hand.

Bring your front (right) foot halfway into the stance (towards the left foot), then pivot on that right foot in an anti-clockwise direction to form a right fixed stance, performing a back elbow thrust with the left elbow to the solar plexus, Kihap on the elbow thrust.

Swap for left attack.

Number 6

Counter by pivoting on the left foot towards the attacker, assuming a sitting stance so that you are inside their stance and attack, while executing a middle outward block with the left outer forearm and a high punch to the side of the jaw with the right hand simultaneously. Kihap.

Swap for a left attack.

Ibo Matsogi Two Step Sparring

The attacker lines up to the defender in the same way as three step sparring, and they go back into a left walking stance low block.

When he or she is ready to attack, the attacker must shout and wait for the defender to respond with a shout before the attack can begin.

This is only done on one side, i.e. not like one step sparring with both right and left sides.

Number 1

Attacker: steps forward into a right walking stance, high obverse punch.
Defender: step back into left walking stance obverse rising block with the left arm.
Attacker: step forward performing a low front snap kick from the back leg (left), landing in walking stance, twin low section block. (Note this is not blocking anything, it is just a finishing position while the defender performs their counter attack.)
Defender: step back into a right walking stance performing an x fist pressing block. Counter by raising the back heel from the floor and landing it as you perform a high twin vertical punch. Kihap on this technique.

Number 2 Attacker: step forward into a right fixed stance while performing a middle forefist side punch.
Defender: step back assuming a right L stance performing a palm upwards block with the left hand.
Attacker: Bring the back leg round and perform a middle turning kick landing in a right Lstance.
Defender: step backwards into a left L-stance performing a waist block. Counter by sliding to the opponent forming a right fixed stance while performing a right back elbow thrust to the solar plexus. Kihap on the elbow.
