Customer Rating: Summary: not for beginners Comment: book has some good techniques for advanced students not a book for beginners.plenty of good pictures. Customer Rating: Summary: The best book on Hapkido that I have added to my collection. Comment: This book contains excellent photographs of the techniques that allows you to understand how you move from start to the finish. I have been studying Hap Ki Do (and other arts) for over 15 years and in my opinion, this book is one of the best I have read. It is a little lean in demonstrating advanced kicks, but is full of wrist, throwing and weapon techniques. Customer Rating: Summary: Good over-all book on Hapkido. Comment: This book illustrates and describes techniques from breathing excercises to weapons defense. The book is logically laid out and has many photographs that accompany the text. I was somewhat disappointed that more advance kicks were not covered... All things considered, this book is a better representation of Hapkido than Spears or Han has published. Customer Rating: Summary: The best book on Hapkido available today. Comment: Replete with hundreds of photo illustrations of everything from proper front kick technique to defense against weapons attacks to multiple opponent attacks. A pratical textbook on Hapkido illustrated so well that it can serve as a self-study guide. I highly recommend this book for both students and instructors.
