About this title

Synopsis:

Briefly traces the history of tae kwon do, demonstrates basic techniques, sparring routines, and practical applications, and explains the rules of competition.

From Library Journal:

This is another in a plethora of manuals claiming to be "the ultimate" guide to the practice of Tae Kwon Do. Most of the book deals with exercises and sparring techniques, while providing disappointingly short sections on the martial art's history and philosophy. Appendixes give additional information on the rules and regulations of Tae Kwan Do competition. The book's limitations recommend it only to public libraries desiring exhaustive martial arts collections. Otherwise, libraries would do well to rely on the more standard works, especially Duk Son's Korean Karate ( Prentice-Hall, 1968; Wehman, 1982. reprint) and Choi Hong Hi's Tae Kwan Do ( Wehman, 1980. o.p.).
