Customer Rating: Summary: 4th and Final Volume of a Detailed Series--Super! Comment: This 4 book series is in my opinion, the most complete teaching work out there on any school of Tang Soo Do Moo Duk Kwan. That it is put out by the official organization led by the son of the (unfortunately deceased) Moo Duk Kwan founder Hwang Kee makes it all the more reliable. This 4th volume published by the United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation (USSBDMDKF) contains all of the required information for promotion to the red belt ranks 3rd, 2nd, and 1st gup, and in conjunction with the material in the previous three volumes, Cho-dan, the Midnight Blue Belt (same as black belt). This volume was also designed for use by members of other Tang Soo Do schools who would like to join the official USSBDMDK, and for that reason includes all three of the Chil Sung Hyung designed by Grandmaster Hwang Kee, which aren't as widely known as say the Ki Cho Hyung or the Pyung Ahn Hyung.
Included are complete descriptions with detailed diagrams and photographs showing all required hand and foot techniques, and the hyung (forms) Pyung Ahn Oh Dan (#5), Chil Sung Il Ro (#1), Chil Sung Ee Ro (#2), Chil Sung Sam Ro (#3), Passai, and Naihanji Cho-dan.
Also covered are one-step sparring (Ill Soo Sik) #13-18, self-defense for cross-wrist grabs #1-4, and same-side sleeve grips #1-4. Red belt sparring combinations #1-3 are also shown. As with the other books, a complete glossary of terminology is included, and explanations of the Moo Duk Kwan symbol, Hwang Kee's "Song of the Ship Sam Seh" (13 Influences), etc. All techniques and forms are demonstrated by the current head of the traditional Moo Duk Kwan H.C. Hwang, son of Hwang Kee.
An excellent teaching mauel. Quality binding that can be opened wide for learning and won't crack the spine. Glossy sweat-resistant cover, so no worries about staining or bumped corners.
