Block & Punch Combination – Sparring Technique
This page examines how to combine blocks and punches in order to score during Taekwondo sparring matches. With this sparring technique, you need to block and punch simultaneously. As your opponent throws a roundhouse kick, you need to block it with one forearm and at the same time, you will throw a hard punch with your other arm. While it is difficult to score a point with a punch, it can throw an opponent off balance and allow you to quickly launch a kick that will score.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For more sparring techniques, please visit to our main Taekwondo sparring section.
