Self Defence (Hosinsul) is one of the four principles of taekwondo. Although taekwondo
is a "self defense" sport in itself, it focusses on high and spinning kicks which
are not very suitable for real life (street) application. Hosinsul is a mixture
of all kinds of techniques, including grappling/locks as well as defending against
armed attackers etc
Tae kwon do is also a way to build up more confidence. Rather than only knowing
just learning taekwondo, we have to apply the principles of Taekwondo in our life.
Though it is a martial art, its discipline, technique and mental training are the
mortar for building sense of justice, fortitude, humility and resolve day to day
issues with confidence.
Without self-control, a Taekwon-Do student is just like any fighter in the street.
Loss of self-control is disastrous both in sparring and personal affairs. "The term
of stronger is the person who wins over oneself rather than someone else", Lao Tzu
