Overview

Taekwondo is defined as a hard-style system of the martial arts— with penetrating kicks and punches, and forceful linear attacks. Dedicated practitioners know that advanced training means not only striving to master techniques, but also developing a deeper understanding of the history, philosophy, and concepts at the core of this martial art.

In Advanced Taekwondo, Scott Shaw presents an in-depth look at the complete art of Taekwondo—from the underlying philosophies that drive the techniques and strategies to advice on mastering basic and advanced techniques fundamental to the art. Chapters include:

  • An in-depth look at the origins and philosophies of Taekwondo
  • Discussion and tips on mastering essential techniques
  • Illustrated poomse sequences, including the Taeguek forms and Black Belt forms
With over 400 illustrations and detailed instruction from a leading teacher in the field, even the most experienced black belts can benefit from the lessons in this book. Scott Shaw is one of the world's most prolific proponents of the Korean martial arts. He began training in hapkido and taekwondo as a young boy and today holds master instructor certification in both. He is a frequently published contributor to martial arts magazines and has authored a number of books, including Hapkido: Korean Art of Self–Defense.

The discussion on forms (poomsae) was disappointing and outright disgraceful. The illustrations are in some cases completely wrong, while in other cases, the descriptions are completely wrong. For an advanced book, the author should have stayed away from illustrations, too. For some reason, the discussion of the forms stopped at Sipjin (5th dan form), leaving Jitae and above only mentioned but not described. The chapters on drills were interesting, but many of the drills - in my opinion - were more for beginners. I would have expected better from a book purporting to be "advanced". I would go into more detail about why I recommend keep looking, but for some reason, BN does not allow lengthy complaints.
