How important are the fundamental techniques? They are like a foundations for are future development. The simple middle punch is used in almost every pattern we learn in Taekwon-do. Front kick, side kick, turning kick – required for the yellow belt are most popular attacking tools in sparring when foot techniques are considered.
For these and many other reasons the answer to the first question is: Fundamental techniques are very important for our training. If for some reason we want to skip the basics and rush to more advanced kicks and strikes we have to keep in mind that it may do us more harm then good. It is a lot easier to progress to the next level knowing where you are coming from. If you don't take the time to learn how to keep your foot horizontal when performing turning kick, probably you won't pay attention also in the reverse turning kick. Errors in patterns, injuries in fight are often caused by skipping through fundamentals.
To avoid this, it's good to have a program that will cover all the basics techniques, theory and nomenclature.
We introduce to you Black Belt Basics:
After releasing all 24 patterns in the program Black Belt All In One (more information about it on http://www.tkd-blackbelt.com ), there came the time for the next production from Mr. Lukas Grygiel.
Author is proud to have in this production such celebrities as Master Jerzy Jedut VII Dan, well-known coach that teaches thousands of people around the world each year through his seminars, creator of the champions, vice president of technical issues in the Polish Taekwon-do Association.
Of course Mr. Jaroslaw Suska VI Dan, who doesn’t need any special introduction continues cooperation with Black Belt Project. In this specific program he is presenting his famous leg techniques. Black Belt Project also supports young, yet experienced instructors.
In this program we can see Mr. Gabriel Bednarczyk IV Dan, who participated in many technical seminars conducted by the Masters: Kim Jong Su, Ri Myong Chol, Jerzy Jedut, Wilem Jacob Bos, Tran Trieu Quan, Hector Marano, Pablo Trajtenberg, Kim Ung Lan and General Choi Chong Hi and Ms. Kamila Szustak II Dan - multiple medalist of the European and World Championships and also World and European Cups. She has started practicing Taekwon-do when she was seven years old, now she owns Taekwon-do club fulfilling her greatest passion that is to pass the spirit of Taekwon-Do to the youngest.
All videos can be watched from the front and from the side, at normal or in the slow motion.

Below are the few opinions of the beta-testers of our program:
“After extremely enjoying All in One with all the Taekwon-do patterns I was really curious about the new program. My students often asked me about the video material that would present fundamental techniques. Especially before the exams. In this program we will find both: videos, practice and theory – that is exactly what I and my students needed! When I had heard that price is about 25€ I had no doubt that my every student above 8th degree will order this software.
I fully recommend it to anyone who is serious about his career in Taekwon-do.”
Mr. Artur Suchy Osuchowski IV DAN from Poland (coach and medal-winning contestant)
„Master Jerzy Jedut is a well-known coach. His experience in Taekwon-do is udeniable. To have him performing techniques and sequences from patterns is like having a seminar with one of the best instructors in the world. Watching Mr. Suska performing flying kicks is really inspiring and always gives me more energy and motivation for my daily training.
I also appreciate the part with the theory – finally I have everything in one place. This software will be helpful not only for the color belts; most of the presented techniques are used in the higher patterns as well. Without a doubt it’s a must-have software for any Taekwon-do practitioner.“
Mr. Kai Johnsrud II DAN from Norway (coach)
