5.0 out of 5 stars No better reference work available on the subject., 7 Sep 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Tae Kwon Do: Secrets of Korean Karate (Paperback)
Outstanding demonstration and explanation of this highly popular style of karate which,moreso than most places great emphasis on foot technique.The text is easy to understand and its' thoroughness of detail and display of skill in technique make it second only to Jordan Roth's masterwork Black Belt Karate.It must be said that this book would probably not serve a novice student too well as there are some moves which could prove difficult to master,like the front and side-limbering kicks and the flying roundhouse kick.This book should perhaps be best viewed as a companion piece to Roth's as there are several techniques not covered in that book,such as the hook kick and the rising heel kick.Great emphasis is placed on sparring so I would say that it is absolutely essential to work with a partner when referring to this book.As one who enjoys the kicking techniques of karate this book definitely comes highly recommended.Class cover shot of a perfectly executed side thrust kick enhances this book's already considerable appeal and usefulness.
