What Our Members Say...
  • 2 years ago, I was introduced to Taekwon-do by a close friend. My first impressions were how amazingly well-mannered the younger students were. As a father of 3 under 10 this is something I noticed immediately! I started my journey with Fusion and over time I got 2 of my children involved in training with Instructor Nick at Fusion. They now love training twice a week after school and practicing constantly. I love that they get a great mix of physical education, appropriate discipline and the feeling of accomplishment from learning the art of Taekwon-do. The skills they learn will always serve them well, and I encourage other parents to come along and try Taekwon-do with their kids.

    - Robert, Fusion Parent & Student

  • "I like to going to Taekwon-do because it is fun and I learn new skills and play interesting games"

    - Oliver (age 9)

  • "Our three children have been learning Taekwon-do with Fusion Martial Arts for nearly two years now and we could not be happier! Our children have learnt a range of valuable skills (including strong discipline) and improved their self-confidence, coordination and core body strength. Fusion Martial Arts has inspired our children to apply themselves in a diligent manner and we have been particularly impressed by Nick's dedication. Nick consistently puts a great deal of effort into his classes and is finely attuned to his student's needs. We would thoroughly recommend Fusion Martial Arts to anyone."

    - Zoe, Fusion Parent

  • "Nick is a good teacher who loves doing it and helps us a lot"

    - Sarah (age 12)

  • "If someone asks Nick a question, he listens and if he does not know the answer he will look it up for us.  He doesn't just ignore us"

    - Benjamin (age 9)

Drills: Directional Kicking & Chained Kicking

The Directional Kicking and Chained Kicking Drills are frameworks that encourages rechambering of the kicking leg in addition to developing balance while adjusting your facing/direction.

Directional Kicking

The premise of the Directional Kicking Drill is to execute the prescribed kick(s) toward multiple directions; generally the 4 cardinal directions of 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. The goal of each student is to execute the collection of kicks without placing the kicking leg onto the floor while rechambering the leg between each kick. The prescribed kick(s) can differ per direction or be consistent across the 4 cardinal directions. The variety of the kicking combinations that can be executed in this drill is limited only by your imagination, giving proper consideration to the flow between kicks, of course. Some example drills using this framework include:

4 Directional Mid Front Snap Kick

  1. R L-Stance Guarding Block (facing 12)
  2. R Mid Front Snap Kick
  3. Turning 90° R (facing 3); R Mid Front Snap Kick
  4. Turning 90° R (facing 6); R Mid Front Snap Kick
  5. Turning 90° R (facing 9); R Mid Front Snap Kick
  6. Turning 90° R (facing 12); L L-Stance Guarding Block (facing 12)

Front/Side/Back/Reverse Turning

  1. R L-Stance Guarding Block (facing 12)
  2. R Mid Front Snap Kick
  3. R Mid Side Piercing Kick (towards 3)
  4. R Mid Back Kick (towards 6)
  5. Turning 270° R (facing 9); R Mid Reverse Turning Kick
  6. Turning 90° R (facing 12); L L-Stance Guarding Block (facing 12)

Front/Turning/Side/Back/Reverse Turning

  1. R L-Stance Guarding Block (facing 12)
  2. R Mid Front Snap Kick
  3. R Mid Turning Kick (towards 2)
  4. R Mid Side Piercing Kick (towards 3)
  5. R Mid Back Kick (towards 6)
  6. Turning 270° R (facing 9); R Mid Reverse Turning Kick
  7. Turning 90° R (facing 12); L L-Stance Guarding Block (facing 12)

Chained Kicking

Chained Kicking is similar to Directional Kicking except for the focus on delivering kicks from your current facing to multiple directions. Once again, the focus is on rechambering the leg between kicks and refraining from placing the foot on the ground during execution.

Stomping Kick Combination

  1. R L-Stance Guarding Block (facing 12)
  2. R Low Downward Stomp Kick
  3. R Mid Stomp Kick
  4. R Mid Back Kick (towards 6)
  5. R Low Cross-Stomp Kick
  6. L L-Stance Guarding Block
