  • Wrestling & Throwing

  • Taekkyon is known for kicking, but there are also other techniques. One major technique is wrestling and throwing.

    In a Taekkyon wrestling match, kicks are not used. However, in a Taekkyon fighting match, kicks and wrestling are applied together.

    Teakkyon wrestling has some unique techniques, such as tripping, and hooking of the legs, and locking of the legs.

    Clothing is not to be grabbed nor held onto in a Taekkyon wrestling match. Thus during Taekkyon wrestling, the opponent’s neck and arms are grabbed and locked onto.

    Teakkyon wrestling is a very old type of wrestling, and it is likely that it originated from ancient Gak Li (Jiao Li 角力) wrestling.
