Self-Defence (Hosin Sul): Throwing and Falling Techniques (Dunjigi wa Torojigi): While Standing

“A throwing technique in Taekwon-Do is only used when you do not wish to seriously injure an opponent, to occasionally counter an opponent’s counter-attack or if an opponent is blocked in a way that it is impossible for him to utilize any of his attacking tools. As soon as a throwing technique is used, step back to avoid a counter-attack motion.” – Gen. Choi Hong Hi (Vol.5. p.341)

“The emphasis in falling is naturally placed on learning to fall without getting hurt and recovering as quickly as possible. […] there are certain basic rules that must be followed:
1. Relax the body.
2. Fall to the side rather than the flat of the back. The falling should be done with a rolling motion distributing the weight on the buttocks, side and shoulder.
3. Absorb the shock by striking the ground or floor with the palm of the hand.
4. Tuck the chin into the chest to avoid the head striking the ground or floor.
5. Raise the legs.” – Gen. Choi Hong Hi (Vol.5. p.341)

Taekwon-Do is a practical art; hence it can be learnt only from an instructor. Words, diagrams and videos can help only as a reference, and they cannot replace an instructor. Expert practical guidance from an instructor is invaluable.

“Certainly the most important asset any training hall can have is a good instructor. There is no substitute for a well-trained, intelligent, perceptive and patient instructor.” – Gen. Choi Hong Hi (Vol.6, p.17).
