Over my life I have practiced various karate systems such as Shotokan, which was my primary kick and punch art,. I also practiced Goju Ryu, and the Taekwondo. I am always on the lookout for books on the martial arts and I purchased this one (Taekwondo: A step-by-step guide to the Korean art of self-defense by Master Kevin Hornsey) at a bargain price on Amazon.

I found this slick 144 page soft cover book very interesting and informative. The full color photographs of the techniques are clear and easy to understand. The three parts cover a lot of essential information all students of Taekwondo should know about this self-defense art. Part one covers a detailed introduction to Taekwondo explaining the philosophy of Taekwondo, proper conduct, bowing, and how to tie your belt. Part two focuses on training showing warm up methods, basic techniques such as stances, punching, blocking, striking, kicking and forms (Poomsae). The final part deals with sparring techniques, self-defense and breaking practice.

This book can serve as an excellent reference source when combined with actual hands-on training with a Taekwondo instructor.

Great book for my hub! He has a Kenpo background but this is very good with pics to help with form and towards achieving belts. He likes it very much. Great buy!

Great intro for beginners. I especially appreciate his explanations of proper class etiquette. His breakdown of the forms is top notch, I only wish the book contained all 8! (it only has 3). He says it's meant to cover all styles of Taekwondo, but I'd say this is most useful to a WTF style practitioner.

This is so helpful to understand how we are supposed to look and what we are supposed to do with each move. Highly recommend for those who want to learn TKD.

As a new student of TKD, I found this book quite helpful trough my first few belt ranks. But I also see that there are a few things missing from this book that you can only learn from your instructor. All in all a good primer.
When I saw this book, I immediately thought, I have to read it and so I did. It is a very well written book and covers quite a bit about WTF(World Taekwondo Federation) Taekwondo. I would have liked to see some more topics covered and some of the topics they covered expanded upon but, that's just me, for what they did cover, they did it well and it was very well explained and illustrated with pictures.

The overal design of the book though, in terms of layout and scheme were very well thought out and something I think anyone can appreciate. This made reading it even more enjoyable, the pictures were sharp and clear and the text was written in plain english, except for the Korean terms of course.

Again, I had fun reading it and I think anyone who studies Taekwondo like myself will take something away from this book even some seasoned black belts who might need to go back to basics for a quick refresher.
