Summary: Well Written, Good Design
Comment: When I saw this book, I immediately thought, I have to read it and so I did. It is a very well written book and covers quite a bit about WTF(World Taekwondo Federation) Taekwondo. I would have liked to see some more topics covered and some of the topics they covered expanded upon but, that's just me, for what they did cover, they did it well and it was very well explained and illustrated with pictures.

The overal design of the book though, in terms of layout and scheme were very well thought out and something I think anyone can appreciate. This made reading it even more enjoyable, the pictures were sharp and clear and the text was written in plain english, except for the Korean terms of course.

Again, I had fun reading it and I think anyone who studies Taekwondo like myself will take something away from this book even some seasoned black belts who might need to go back to basics for a quick refresher.

Summary: Good, but missing a few things
Comment: As a new student of TKD, I found this book quite helpful trough my first few belt ranks. But I also see that there are a few things missing from this book that you can only learn from your instructor. All in all a good primer.

Summary: Great intro book
Comment: This was one of the first books on Taekwondo that I came across, just after I started training, which was probably perfect. It is aimed at the beginner and offers guidance from how to tie your belt through all the essential punches, blocks and kicks. Excellent colour photos with arrows added to show movement.
Ideal beginners book and a great gift for someone (young or old)in the early stages of Taekwondo.
