Summary: dont bother
Comment: just don't bother with this. Save your money and get Duk Son Sung's book Korean Karate. There are better books on martial arts and on Taekwondo in general.

Summary: Chung Do Kwan revisited
Comment: This is a good work of one of the most respected "styles" of Taekwondo out there. It is a great companion to both Korean Karate and Black Belt Korean Karate both by the 2nd Head of the Chung Do Kwan GM Son, DukSung. I would recommend this book to anybody that studies "traditional" "Korean Karate" I think the authors did a good job in describing the art of Chung Do Kwan well.

Summary: Easy to Follow and Fun to Do!
Comment: I have always been interested in martial arts but never could get going on it. I found this book and couldn't put it down. It was very easy to follow and gave me a complete workout with straightforward instructions on how to do all the techniques. Now I am an avid martial artist who continues to use this book as a reference for improving my techniques as I advance. For example, the chapter on three-step gave me new ideas to add to my three-steps and sparring. The part about sparring showed me how to use all the things I practice in basics and forms in my sparring. The forms chapter made me think beyond the obvious about forms. I really enjoyed reading this book and so did my instructor! I would say, go for this book if you are interested in martial arts.

Summary: A great addition to Chung Do Kwan!
Comment: I have practiced Chung Do Kwan for many years and was very favorably impressed by this book. It gives a good background and philosophical basis. It made me rethink what I do and recognize the depth of Chung Do Kwan. This book is in line with Sung's book, Korean Karate, but extends it in philosophy and clear descriptions of method and the principle behind it. The book gives a good description of techniques which would be helpful to someone new to martial arts. But it also gives tips and insights to help experienced martial artists get more power out of what they already do. This book also gives an interesting analysis of forms showing how to get more out of them. It has good ideas about self defense and sparring, plus it is filled with many useful ways to apply techniques. I highly recommend this book to anyone who does Taekwondo and martial arts in general.

Summary: Missing The Mark A Bit...
Comment: Looking like an attempt to follow in Son Duk Sung's works, the author wastes a little bit of paper. If you have never read Son's text, this book may be worth more to you. Some forms are detailed (Pyong An's) but it looks like the author has changed Pyong An 1. For the price, I guess it is okay, but not the best contribution to Chung Do Kwan Tae Kwon Do / Korean Karate.
