Technique workshops – Self defense

Master Michael Muleta, with over 30 years of training and teaching experience worldwide, has regularly appeared in magazines and asked to contribute various articles and technique workshops sequences in self defense, drills and training methods.

Drawing on his many years of training in Taekwon-Do (30) along with training other martial arts and combat sports (Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Kickboxing Wushu), Master Muleta ensured the Thoroughbred Taekwon-Do syllabus has always focussed on a high Self-Defense (Ho Sin Sul) content.

As a Technical Director of ITF Organizations in 4 different countries, Master Muleta has offered much in the area of technical development and improvement, both in the sporting and martial arts context, along with proven teaching methodology for instructors, with an extensive teaching background both in and out of Taekwon-Do.

Master Muleta still actively teaches seminars internationally. To book your seminar contact him at
