Teakkyon stance and foot placement is unique. It is a very strong stance and is adaptive to changing situations.
The feet constantly move to a rhythm whilst the knees bend up and down like a spring. During these movements of the feet and knees, the hips also move in, out, left, right. The whole body moves and thus needs to be relaxed.
These movements of the feet, knees, and hips, are the basis of powerful kicks in Taekkyon. Every Taekkyon kick requires these movements in order to be fast, responsive, and powerful.
This rhythm used in stepping and foot placement is irregular, which slows and speeds up. It is usually a 3 beat but changes to a 1, 2, 3, or 4 beat.
