Welcome to the first part of the Taekwondo Sparring Tutorial!
In this episode, I cover 2 rules of thumb in Taekwondo.
1. Counter in the same clockwise direction.
2. If you end up on the wrong side, follow up to the open side.
I kind of coined the term "Swing Direction Concept" so don't assume that everyone knows about it lol
Of course there are exceptions to these rules but this is the very basic groundwork of forming complex strategies later on.
