Spotlight customer reviews:
Customer Rating: Summary: a little vague Comment: As an Instructor of children's martial arts, I have already learned the Taeguek forms, I find it extremely difficult on reviewing some of the forms by myself. There are also debates on which book is more accurate. after having purchased this book, I have decided to buy another book that has a better description on stance and direction. Customer Rating: Summary: Good Taegeuk forms Comment: Don't let Liggins review confuse you. I can use the names. This book does not contain the Palgwe forms (which is what he was refering to - I THINK - as the more common form). If your school uses Taegeuk forms (which MOST do today) - then this is a reference book you will want in your library. Kat Lakey, Black Belt, Korea Taekwando Acadamy Customer Rating: Summary: Don't Let it Confuse You Comment: This book is only for the uncommon kind of Tae Kwon Do. It doesn't have the more popular version (sorry about the names being missing). If you want to know about Chun Ji, Tan Gun, Toe San, Won Wyo, Yul Kuk, Chung Gun, Ti Gye, and the others I recomend finding another book because you won't find them here. Customer Rating: Summary: A book for Tae Kwon Do practitioners to own Comment: The best way to learn forms is to train under a master's supervision in the dojang as often as possible. However, if one is looking for a text to support their formal training in the new forms, here it is. Enough said. Customer Rating: Summary: Excellent for learning Comment: Excellent book. This book really helped me along with preparing for my Green belt. Now I am preparing for my blue belt, and hopefully will get it! With this book, you can really master your forms with the easy step by step instructions
