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)

Stance Diagrams in GIF and SVG

Click here to download the Stances ZIP archive. This ZIP archive contains huge A3 sized GIF images for each Taekwon-do stance. Additionally, this ZIP file also contains an Open Document Graphic (ODG) file which houses each stance in Scaleable Vector Graphics (SVG) format. SVG drawings are stored mathematically rather than as a “rasterized” moasic of pixels (as is the case with the GIF images) meaning that they can be scaled to any size without loosing image quality.

The SVG/ODG files can be opened by a number of paid and freeware applications. The file itself was authored with Open Office’s Draw application (see: http://www.openoffice.org/product/draw.html). You can download a freeware portable version of Open Office from http://portableapps.com/apps/office/openoffice_portable.

 

The stance drawings utilize the proportions of  Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man to ensure accurate scaling and layout. da Vinci’s notes on the original drawing specify in part (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitruvian_Man):

Ergo, the maximum width of the shoulders is equal to 1.5 times the length of the foot (6/4=1.5). Therefore, 1 shoulder width in the drawings equates to 1.5 foot lengths.
