    That it has clarity and is therefore isomorphic for self-defense.
    Versus what is not clear and is not effective for self-defense.

    i.e., on a Tae Kuk, you pivot to 9 o'clock, step forward with your left foot and do a downward block for a front kick. The block must be at a 45 degee angle to the ground. Then you step forward to 9 o'clock into a forward bow (chong-gul cha se) as you execute a right handed reverse punch. The punch must be parallel to the ground.

    My point being, you are moving the wrong direction to block anything effectively, and the reference points for both the block and the counter-attack are non-effective for targeting, for distancing and for closing the appropiate gap.
