    I was not impressed with this book. The pictures are small and of poor quality. There is little in the way of explanation for the techniques and nothing about the history of the forms or hyungs. These are not lost or forgotten forms, but Japanese or Okinawan karate forms that were adapted for Korean Tang Soo Do. One thing that was interesting, was to see how the forms in the book compare to the older versions.

    Grandmaster Sylvester Cheatham has released a "treasure trove" of Tang Soo Do knowledge passed on to him from his teacher Grandmaster Myung Seok Seo, President and Founder of the International Moo Duck Hwoi Association. The book does not include the standard forms such as Bassahee, Nai Ahn Chi and Ro Hai; but rather covers lesser known, more exotic forms such as Sim Pa, Sae Pae, Tae Pyung and Sam Jin. The subtitle of the book is aptly named "Hidden Treasures of the Korean Martial Arts." The book covers 11 forms from first to second dan midnight blue belt. I highly recommend this volume for martial artists of all styles and look forward to the second volume that will cover third through fifth dan.
