Ch'ang Hon Taekwon-Do Hosinsul

Self Defence Techniques From Ch'ang Hon (ITF) Taekwon-Do

HOSINSUL ­- The essential element of self defence training for instructors, students and schools of Taekwon-Do.


Ch'ang Hon Taekwon-Do Hosinsul brings the advanced area of hosinsul training combining the original concept of hosinsul with the modern HAOV (Habitual Acts of Violence) list, which is a list of the most common street attacks that happen, in the real world, today.


Using this book as a guide, instructors, students and Taekwon-Do schools alike, are now able to either implement or enhance this essential area of training and make it more productive and applicable to today's modern world.


Ch'ang Hon Taekwon-Do Hosinsul details how Hosinsul differs from other areas of training (such as 1 Step Sparring), gives ideas on how to practice and train to make Hosinsul as functional as possible and goes on to provide over 180 detailed defences against over 40 of the most common street attacks, taken from the HAOV list and more; including defences against strikes, kicks, grabs, bearhugs, armlocks, chokes, take downs, headbutts and others. 


This book provides a valuable resource for defences against attacks that are very rarely taught in mainstream Taekwon-Do Dojangs as they are considered unorthodox, but these are the very attacks you need to be prepared for in the real world as they are most likely to be used by an attacker that is not formally trained in a martial art.


Virtually all the defences in this book come directly from the Ch'ang Hon (ITF) system of Taekwon-Do itself, negating the need to teach other martial arts to fill the important area of self defence, in turn, helping all Taekwon-Do schools to ensure that they teach a fully rounded martial art, as Taekwon-Do was meant to be.

"These techniques are not only the most interesting in Taekwon-Do,

but also the most advanced"

- General Choi Hong Hi
