The following Sparring Combinations are used by our Color Belts in rotation at Kowkabany’s Family Martial Arts (KFMA). These combinations were developed to transition the student from learning the individual techniques to using them in fluid motion. These were originally written by Grand Master Bill Clark, and they are now used in the majority of ATA schools teaching Songahm Taekwondo around the world.
The material below is provided for reference only, and students are STRONGLY cautioned to learn the proper set-up and execution of the techniques during class FIRST, and then to use the videos below for at-home practice to assist with memorization.
First, here’s a look at the Sparring Combinations Training Schedule for each calendar year:
All White Belts will work on the White Belt Sparring Combinations until they are promoted to Orange Belt.
Orange and Yellow Belts will use the Orange-Yellow Sparring Combinations until they are promoted to Camo Belt.
Camo, Green and Purple Belts will train with the Camo-Green Sparring Combinations while they work on Songahm 4 and Songahm 5, from January through August. They will train with the Purple-Blue Sparring Combinations from September through December.
Blue, Brown and Red Belts will train with the Purple-Blue Sparring Combinations from January through April; they will work the Brown-Red Sparring Combinations from May through December.
Here are the videos for each set of Sparring Combinations:
