I read the book almost everyday to refresh my mine. Great book.
Of course you cant replace actual teaching but this book is awesome. Covers every key part of Taekwondo and includes illustrations of all the key poomse. I would definately recommend this book to anyone serious about the art.
This book is the BEST book i have ever read!!! It covers everything. From warm-ups to blocks, punches to kicks, stances to poomse. EVERYTHING!!!!
great book...depicts and describes all the stances, hand techniques, foot techniques, and blocks accurately and perfectly....also the footwork, sparring, and warming up sections are excellent...also has all the poomse.....definately recommend this book to any serious tkd practitioner
This book is the easiest to read, most informative book on the art of Taekwondo I have ever read. The history, philosophy and the techniques are all discussed and shown is this treasure of a book. For the avid student, I urge you to get a copy.
This Taekwondo book excels in what it hopes to accomplish in terms of communication, and succeeds beyond all expecttions. The Korean history detailing the development of the martial arts ranks as the most comprehensive of any volume available to the public. The authors provide clear and precise instructions for the techniques; also, the use of drawings (with directional arrows) instead of photographs helps to clarify the movements without the often blurry photos found in other martial arts texts. The section of forms is somewhat confusing, but understandable after some experience with the forms first hand. Overall, this is a wonderful edition to any Taekwondoist's library.
