About the Author:

Yeon Hwan Park was the undefeated Korean national champion of Tae Kwon Do from 1971 to 1975. He has coauthored Black Belt Tae Kwon Do and Tae Kwon Do, Third Edition, both for Facts On File and Checkmark Books. He lives in East Meadow, New York.

Review:

"One of my favourite parts of the books was when we see a gap in Master Parks armour, when he recounts how certain events (again related to taekwondo) drove him to depression and 'Johnnie Walker' (drink) and how the spirit of Taekwondo helped him through. ... I feel this would make a worthy addition to any WTF student's book collection." - Totally Tae Kwon Do Magazine, July 2009
