Editorial Reviews:

In the martial arts, especially Taekwondo, only three questions are really important as you begin, and this book answers all of them: 1) Will the techniques I'm learning really work in self-defense and competition? 2) Am I learning these techniques the best possible way? 3) How can I remember, master, and apply all I am learning? The answers are those of an internationally renowned master instructor, whose wisdom is captured on these pages along with clear illustrations by an award-winning photographer. The techniques are organized just like a workout session. Start with preparation, conditioning, and weight-room workout. Go on to the basic stances, the seven principal kicking techniques, hand punches and blocks, and to other strategies and applications. The most important aspect of training--the psychological component--shows how to keep yourself motivated through continuing education, proper rest, and relaxation. You, too, can experience those breakthroughs which Taekwondo veterans refer to as times when "the indomitable spirit hits home." Sterling 128 pages, 296 b/w illus., 8 x 10.

Summary: Good,Basics!...,janurary 16 2007
Comment: It's a good book for self defence.Do the moves fast!This book shows you alot of kicks. First I recomend you should get the ``Tao of jeet kune do''By Bruce lee. Then decied what fighting style you want to learn. Every style is about the same. That is the good part of it and bad part of it.No style is better then anouther style it's up to the individual. There's too many factors that could turn in a fight!Nothing could be perfect in a style because as human beings we are not perfect so what we make isn't perfect either. In this case fighting styles!

Summary: Overall good but ...
Comment: It is good for starters, but it is difficult to understand from photos the exact movements. Some arrows drawn by hand would do the trick.

Customer Rating:
Summary: Clear, Consise and Useful
Comment: From warm-ups through to competion sparring, this book covers it all. Each major kick is clearly outlined in a number of pages. The pictures are not 100% clear but all in all an excellent buy.
