- Stretching is the most necessary part of the Martial Arts. Before starting any step, it is good to stretch more than one part of your body and it should be active to get a more efficient workout. Keep your body relaxed and loose when you do a stretch.
- When practicing your step, just make sure that you are doing it correctly. While doing every step, be sure to concentrate on the purpose of every move. Additionally, practice is required as practice makes you perfect.
- Jose Louis Acanda says that footwork is one of the most important factors of sparring, because it is the base that makes your attack stronger. At first, you should start working on your basics and then begin throwing some fakes and moving side to side. After getting comfortable in that, you should begin working in some kicks.
- Having good kicking techniques is another big part of tae kwon do. You have to start with the basic techniques before moving to the more advanced ones. Next you can practice with the more complicated kicks.
Furthermore, Jose Louis Acanda lays importance on the fact that a positive mental attitude is essential in Taekwondo. A positive mental attitude will keep you focused and gives you strength whatever is being attempted. He and his wife built BOA which is home of tae kwon do families, kickboxing and jiujitsu students, and Heart to the Sky Yoga Space devotees.
