How to Perform a Punch / Pull Technique in Tae Kwon Do

1.Face forward with your feet shoulders' width apart. Step forward on one leg with your knee bent. Your back leg will be straight (front stance).
2.Start with your forward arm extended in front of your body. The fist will face downward.
3.Keep your punching arm at your side, your hand formed into an upturned fist.
4.Punch forward quickly with your rear arm, twisting the wrist immediately before contact, so that the fist is facing downward. At the same time, pull the lead arm back until it rests at your side, twisting the wrist until the fist faces upward.
5.Alternate the punches as necessary, using the principle of “equal and opposite reaction” to gain power. 
Tips: Practice the punch/pull technique with a partner until you achieve a steady rhythm. Start slowly at first to master the technique, then practice for speed. 
Warnings: Practicing the martial arts is an inherently dangerous activity that can result in serious injury. We recommend that you seek proper training and equipment before attempting this activity.
