22.3.2020 / Breathing in Taekwon-do
Breath control in taekwondo from physiotherapist perspective
Breathing correction is one of my key focuses in my personal training, but also in working with both patients and taekwondists as physical therapist.

Maybe you can´t imagine living without kicking, punching and fighting, but we would survive without it. But there is no life without breathing. Normally we do not think about it, but we are able to voluntarily control it (for example holding bre
