Customer Rating: Summary: The Road of Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do/Soo Bahk Do Comment: This is the 3rd book in a continuing 4 volume series published by the United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation (USSBDMDKF) presenting the official Moo Duk Kwan curriculum as passed down from Hwang Kee to hundreds of thousands of practitioners worldwide. This volume includes all of the requirements for green belt 6th, 5th and 4th gup.
The terms Tang Soo Do and Soo Bahk Do are often used interchangeably. Moo Duk Kwan is the unique name of this school, "Moo" meaning "Martial", "Duk" meaning "Virtue", and "KWan" translating as "school". The Moo Duk Kwan was founded by Hwang Kee in 1945, and although influenced in a large part by Japanese Karate, later came to include unique information derived from Hwang Kee's research into Chinese matrial arts and the Chinese-influenced Korean military manual known as the Mooyea Dobo Tongji.
Included in this volume are all required hand and foot techniques, combination techniques, and the following 4 Hyung (forms): Pyung Ahn Sam Dan (#3), Pyung Ahn Sa Dan (#4), Pyung Ahn O Dan (#5), and the first Chil Sung Hyung designed by Founder Hwang Kee and based upon his research, Chil Sung Il Ro (#1), which is generally the second Chil Sung Hyung taught.
Also included are one step sparring (Ill Soo Ski) #7-14, and Self-sefense (Ho Sin Sool) wrist grab on both wrists #1-4, side wrist grab Natural and alternate), and back wrist grab long & close. Sparring combinations for green belt #1-4 are also included.
A highly recommended book for anyone studying the official USSBDMDK style. Helful, complete, all techniques and forms are demonstrated by Hwang Kee's son, H.C. Hwang. Quality binding allows the book to be opened all the way as a study guide without having to worry about cracking the spine. Glossy moisture resistant cover will keep this book in good condition through use.
