The martial art of Taekwon-Do was initially developed by the Korean military in the 1950s and spread internationally with the formation of the International Taekwon-Do Federation [ITF] in 1966. Taekwon-Do has continued to develop and it is now one of the most popular martial arts, with some eight million students worldwide and perhaps best known for its spectacular kicking and power demonstrations. In this highly practical and informative book, Master Hogan draws on his vast experience to give unique insights into the performance and application of the first nine patterns (tul) that Taekwon-Do students must master to obtain the rank of 1st degree black belt.

The book succeeds admirably in its aim to show each pattern move by move and to demonstrate why some of the moves are used and real world examples of when you may use them. This is not a resource to show you how to do the next pattern, it is a resource to help you understand the patterns that you already know and are currently learning.
I started 6 months ago and now my 2 daughters and I are yellow belts. This is a good reference guide to help you start learning a pattern and when you forget a specific move or next stance in one.
It would be improved by a summary set of pictures at the end of each pattern showing you all the moves on one page. Go to the British TKD website for it.
I've got alot of Tae Kwon-Do books in my collection, and I would say that this is one of the first that has actually been written and edited correctly. I'm not talking about whether a move should be high, middle or low section - but whether the book is readable and makes sense as you read it - and this does.
The images and the way the book is laid out is ordered correctly, with comments and additional information beneath the move shown in the book - not at some later point that just seems to be tagged on at the end of a chapter.
Plus besides whether the book itself makes sense will it help you in your TKD training - and the answer is YES - and that is both for students and instructors!
Great Book, Great Read
