Self-defence seminar with Zdeněk Adamojurka
Martin Svitek, 9.3.2014 – I had promised to invite someone interesting for Saturday seminar long time ago. It is easier to promise than to do so it took some time (but I really tried - one thing skillful martial artists have in common is fact that their time is precious). Finally, my good friend Zdeněk Adamojurka accepted my invitation. Zdeněk is IV. Dan holder, former national team coach, leader of Oh Do Kwan tkd school, but first of all he is Warrior both in body and mind.
I gonna write few words from position of organizer and especially student. I was happy to see, that this kind of seminar brought about 15 people (and after some time there were more visitors than Sonkal members) from different school. Radka Heydušková (czech tkd legend) and Martina Kopecká (national team meber) from Silla came, there were people from Chon-ji and Koguryo (Vojta Fiala studying in Prague) and even Tong-Il members came (respect both of them as they travelled from far).
As a student I enjoyed Zdeněk´s practical point of view when he criticized how is "self-defence" taught in Taekwondo, but with ability to show it, so we knew that he practiced this way a long time and just had to change it because of experience. I won´t forget many things, I believe that everyone was enchanted by his skills in reverse kicks that he can perfrom so naturally, that he may use them in selfdefence. Someone asked him with doubt "would you really kick this way on street" and Zdeněk just replied "I already did". I also enjoyed some pain as Zdeněk had to show some stuff (but also tortured others) and got hit to two most important parts of man´s body (no, it was not heart!).
I think that the most important message was that we had to practice for reality, so attacks had to be agressive. We have to grab an opponent as we want to hurt him not as if I am hugging a good friend (Zdeněk showed this on Verča Holečková and I think she won´t forget it). Another point was that our self-defence can hardly be based on holding, throwing and locking techniques as we spent just slight part of training on them. We have to use punches and kicks (and destructive blocks) as we spent most of our training practicing them.
It was both funny and interesting talk after training with beer in hand and I hope that everyone got something from this training. If you had to think in a bit different way after these few hours it was worth of organizing.

As it was very inspiring for me both technically and personally I will invite Zdeněk again in future. Thank you, Zdeněk, kyuksool!

PS: We had technical seminar for our red belts and above in the morning. Few photos are also available in photogallery.
