    Taekwondo?

    Many of the techniques are signature hapkido. So for me, I felt this was a re-wrapped gift that I might have already paid for because I also bought a book on Hapkido. One nice feature is that it is a checklist of things, rather than a how-to book. That means, you better have prior knowledge. Then again, that is generally recommended practice anyway when one buys a book of this nature. One bad feature is that it is a checklist of things. That means, details are lost in the techniques. There are VERY subtle ways to lock a joint or throw an opponent, and there are many physiological issues to account for. That's one reason this book isn't for the beginner; but for the advanced practitioner, these subtle but important details should still be mentioned. Another feature I didn't like is that the techniques are discussed and executed in stasis. This is how one learns a technique, but as one masters the technique, the technique should be performed as if were going to be done in real life - dynamically. That means there is conflict here: if the book's intended audience was a novice, the static movements are fine - but then, no novice should be reading a book like this due, in part, to the many missing details. If the book's intended audience was an expert, then the techniques should be presented in dynamic motion - but then, this is, after all, a book. So showing how to do this in dynamic motion in a book is not feasible - at least, not without an accompanying DVD or link to a website showing the dynamic movements. And that didn't happen here. As a result, I feel the book is neither appropriate for a novice nor valuable to an expert. Further, the techniques hint strongly of Hapkido - not of the striking elements of Taekwondo. This is a general matter of debate, whether or not traditional taekwondo has grappling, et al, but this discussion is not covered in the book. In fact, the first page after the preface is a quote; the next is a money-shot photo; and the next goes into technical detail of an attack. Another complaint I have is of the actors in the photos. They change every other page. Luckily, the bad guy is always the same guy. The good guy seems always changes every technique. Occasionally, roles switch and then it can be jarring to realize you need to follow the other person. It would have been better if the book were in color, and that the good guy wears one color, while the bad guy wears another. I liked that they are all in white uniforms because that makes the details in the techniques easy to see, but therein lies my next complaint: The quality of the photos is horrible beyond reproach. The only worse possible method of demonstrating one's doctoral and 8th dan qualities would be to use stick drawings, which, believe it or not is used in another book I am reviewing. So while the photos are bad, at least Mr Kim did not use stick drawings. However, there are some interesting concepts presented about the psychology of self-defense. They are sprinkled throughout the book, and they do make sense and in a strange way, add a sort of rhythm to the techniques and photos in the book.
