Summary: Great book on training
Comment: This book is based on mostly training for competition, and some for self-defense. It shows one form(tae geuk 1) but that wasn't the intended purpose of it. It shows falling and rolling, stances, arm strikes, kicks, blocks, and even things like stepping. It also has good sections on conditioning and competition. The conditioning section has plyometric training, various ab workouts, kick and hand strike resistance training, and a very good sectiong on mental toughness(various imagery, meditation, and focused breathing exercises). The bad side is mostly a small lack of information. I felt the kicking and stretching sections could have been better. The kicking section doesn't show any jumping and advanced kicks(like the spinning hook kick), but overall it is a good book. It also has a nice price too.
