Customer Rating: Summary: A Very Good Series of Books on the ITF Tae Kwon Do Forms Comment: NOTE: This review, along with the other reviews of the books devoted to the various ITF (International Tae Kwon Do Federation) hyungs, forms, or katas in this series, is identical in nature, as the subject matter for each book only differs in the actual hyungs or forms being demonstrated. The layout and format are identical and that is what these reviews are based upon.
This book, along with the rest of the books in the series, is an outstanding source of information on the correct execution of the ITF Tae Kwon Do hyungs in which this particular volume demonstrates. Now if you don't know anything about Tae Kwon Do and purchase this book, it will do you about as much good as a screen door in a submarine. However, if you are already a practicing ITF, or similar style, Tae Kwon Do student, then this book is a must have for your continued advancement in the martial arts.
Every book in this series that deal with the various hyungs, utilizes the same format throughout each book in order to show you the correct execution of each kata demonstrated. Admittedly there aren't a whole lot of words describing the various moves in the hyungs, but there are an abundance of photographs taken from various angles that pretty much show you exactly how your body should be positioned not only for each individual move, but also how your body should be positioned as you move from one position to another.
This book also demonstrates the moves in each kata to its application against an actual opponent, which is a nice addition to this already wonderful book.
If you are a student of ITF Tae Kwon Do, or a student of another style that utilizes the same hyungs, I would highly recommend that you purchase these books in order to advance your knowledge of whatever particular hyungs or forms that you are currently working on. You won't be disappointed!
Martial artist/Author of the Achieving Kicking Excellence series. Customer Rating: Summary: Learn Tae Kwon Do's forms Comment: I used this book and both the one before and after it while learning the particular forms presented. One can only learn so much in class. One may not always get a clear explanation of why you move a certain way. This is as clear a guideline as I have found. Jhoon Rhee is a leading star in Tae Kwon Do particulary in the United States.
