"Tae Kwon Do, The Indomitable Martial Art of Korea" by Grandmaster Dong Keun Park & Master Allan Schein

by J Fraser

Shortly after starting taekwondo, I ran out and bought Tae Kwon Do Basics, Techniques and Forms: The Indomitable Martial Art of Korea to help me practice at home.

It is now two years later and I'm still referring to it. The book is full of well photographed color pictures demonstrating stretches, stances, blocks, punches, kicks, sparring sequences, and forms.

There 20 pages depicting stretches, most of which we do at my school. I spend a lot of time looking up and reviewing the forms at the back of this book. The pictures are excellent and, whenever the form deviates from what we have learned at my school, I simply make a note.

I know that there are lots of great taekwondo resources available on the web (including this site), but a book is so portable and so easy to access.
