The first Seminar of Taekwon-Do Deutschland e.V. MO#363 was a big sucess for this young association. About 47 Practitioners came to get lessons in Self Defense and Tul. The Seminar was led by Mr. Olaf Braemer VI. Degree. At exactly 10.00hrs the
seminar began with a minute of silence for the passed President of ITF Bulgaria, Mr Todor Todorov.
Then, after a intensive warming up, Mr. Braemer went straight into Self Defense. The goal was to defend the attacker with a
harmonic movement instead power. To use the body mass with a harmonic movement is the key to defend a attacker who is

Nice to-the-point article. Good pictures. Harmonic movements instead of power in self-defense is an interesting concept; especially effective for small-built people. Congratulations to Taekwon-Do Deutschland e.V. on its first seminar and a job well done. Always good to see an organization's leader leading. See you at the International Open German Taekwon-Do Championships, 28 November.
