Customer Rating: Summary: Fair Basic Tang Soo Do Book... Comment: This was one of the first economical Tang Soo Do books, first published in 1980. Author Henry Murphy offers the basic philosophy and techniques to 7th gup (orange belt) in Moo Duk Kwan style of Tang Soo Do. The information here is both basic and brief. You will not find much on history, and there is only one picture of Grandmaster Hwang Kee standing with C.I. Kim. For the beginner, this is a nice little volume, focused as it is on the foundations of the art. The three hyung included in this book are the Ki Cho Hyung Il Bu (first), Ee Bu (second), and Sam Bu (third). The tenents of Tang Soo Do, philosophy, et cetera. for a more thorough volume on this specific style, try Kang Uk Lee's "Tang Soo Do". If you're afraid you'll skip ahead and want to stay focused on the fundamentals, this book is perfect. Customer Rating: Summary: Good Book! Comment: Good intro to this Korean Martial Art. Lots of illustrations on proper form. Basically a supplement to Mr. Murpy's instruction. I took his class ages ago and he gave it to the students for free. He is a great teacher. Don't know where he is and I wish I kept in contact with him.
