In Taekwondo the arc-hand thrust #반달손 #뚫기 is often used to attack the throat (trachea).
In ITF Taekwon-Do the other hand is sometimes used to pull the opponent closer while simultaneously attacking the throat. One hand thrusts, while the other pulls. This yin-yang (음양) type movement is one application of the so-called Reaction Force principle, that is part of ITF Taekwon-Do's "Theory of Power".
A common variation in Taekkyun 택견 is as a #takedown: the arc-hand pushes the opponent's throat or even face, while the other hand is used to reap one of the opponent's legs, and so topple him.
