This review is from: Philosophy of Traditional Martial Arts For the Body, Mind and Spirit (Kindle Edition)
Being a Tae KwonDo learner I naturally was keen to read this book. Once you start practising Tae KwonDo you start to get interested in Korean and Oriental history and philosophy, and the spirit of the martial arts becomes important. The format of the book is such that it is best read slowly, assimilating and reflecting on the different ideas - the authors have divided the book into short chapters, starting with history, patterns, self defense etc. It is NOT a training manual! Rather it gives you a philosophical background to martial arts, not just Tae KwonDo. It is unfortunately not well formatted for the Kindle eBook, as sentences and paragraphs are sometimes jumbled up. Still worthwhile reading, although I suspect the printed book is more enjoyable to hold and read!
