Street Kwon Do is one of the fighting styles featured in Def Jam Icon.
They don’t call it Tae Kwon Do on the street; they call it Street Kwon Do. Regardless of what they call it, it’s one of the most powerful art forms available to young thugs. This kick-heavy fighting style is perfect for causing major damage from a safe distance. More often than not, wannabe hustla’s find themselves on the ground or on the other side of the venue after being blindsided by a Street Kwon Do fighter’s attacks.

The first and most important rule of Street Kwon Do is don’t get knocked down. Your get-up speed is weak, often leaving you grounded and vulnerable to more damage. To defend against this, use your superior grab skills and extremely dangerous kicks to separate yourself from the other fighter. Maintain a strong and constant offensive when using Street Kwon Do. A well-timed kick or perfectly timed throw can be the difference between life or death.
If you’ve ever faced off against a strong Street Kwon Do fighter, then you know what to expect. A Street Kwon Do fighter grabs, kicks, and usually tries to fight you on his terms. Don’t let him. Get in fast and get out. Pick away at him the way he would like to pick away at you, but instead of keeping him at a distance, keep him on the ground. Once he’s on the ground, pound away. To maximize damage counter a Street Kwon Do fighter’s attacks and send him into hazards as often as possible. Because Street Kwon Do is a power style, it is vulnerable to quick styles like Muay Fly and Jah Breaka.
