Typical Ho Sin Sul techniques include (but is not limited to):
- Escapes and release techniques from various grabs and holds.
- Different joint locking techniques.
- Different throws.
- Different take downs and trips.
- "Nasty" strikes (elbows, head butts, knees)
- Vital point attacks
Today Ho Sin Sul is like most other aspects of our training divided in two camps: One is Movie Ho Sin Sul that is often used in demonstration for show and is in no way in line with any kind of reality and the other being what this post is about, a collection of techniques to round up your skills so you can face any attacker at any distance. Traditional Taekwondo is a lot more diverse then you would believe looking at main stream Taekwondo schools today. Are you getting the most out of your training? Is your Dojang only focused on olympic sparring? Do you feel confident at facing an attacker at clinching range or do you not know what to do when the oponent has gotten a grip on you? Train well, if you have "gaps" study another art for a few months and include what you need in you personal Jeet Kune Do repetoaire Ho Sin Sul:-)
