Importance of Bakchigi
This Bakchigi provides you with very powerful attack, and it
is an essential aspect of every attacking motion. In every skill of Taekwondo
you have to keep your mental attitude of approaching, which should cause actual
pushing movement. This is very important. For; the

of Sky with everything kept in its proper place, should hit the opponent with
the whole of yourself in attack. Therefore, you should move and organize all
parts of your body even in a slight motion. (Ch.34 of PPT) The essence of
