Hi, I'm Jeremy Manning, Director of Personal Training at Elevation Fitness and two time International Bronze Medalist in Tae Kwon Do. Today, we'll be covering two basic sparring techniques. This is my assistant, Ryan, and he'll be holding the pads. It's important to have the proper safety equipment, a heavy bag for heavy kicks and hand pads for light hand techniques. So the first basic sparring technique we're going to use is the fake and the jab, really great for point sparring, easy way to score a head shot with a faking kick. You want to execute the kick, make it exaggerated, make it look sloppy so they see it coming and they throw that guard out and come in with the hand strike. And next we're going to execute a basic roundhouse. The best part about this is sneaking it in underneath the elbow. So you really want to watch your opponent when you see that elbow start to get a little sloppy, the guard come up a little high. You're going to come right up underneath it in a nice basic roundhouse. Get up underneath the guard and sneak in that point. I'm Jeremy Manning and this is Ryan Hughes of Elevation Fitness and that was basic sparring techniques.
