The Theory of Power

In the beginning, the student may ask “Where does one obtain the power to create such devastating self-defence results?”. The average person uses only 10 to 20 percent of their full potential and regardless of age, size or gender, if you can apply 100 percent of your potential everyone can apply the same destruction.

The Theory of Power (Him Ui Wolli) was developed by ITF Tae Kwon-Do to explain how the power applied to a technique can be affected. Tae Kwon-Do training is fantastic for the acquisition of extraordinary stamina and strength however this isn’t the way to give maximum power into a technique. Tae Kwon-Do training will result in a high level of reaction force, concentration, equilibrium, breath control and speed – and these are the factors required to provide a high degree of physical power.
