Excerpts

Tae Kwon Do is currently practiced in more than 163 countries by more than 30 million students of the art. It will make its debut as an official Olympic sport at the Sydney games in 2000. Now, the authors of Tae Kwon Do, the definitive and best-selling reference to the sport, have created a follow-up guide designed expressly to meet the needs of students who have mastered the basics and come up through the ranks of the lower-level belts. This guide combines a complete explanation of the physical aspects of tae kwon do with a full description of the philosophical elements of its training. Among the topics covered are: • Excerpted from Black Belt Tae Kwon Do: The Ultimate Reference Guide to the World's Most Popular Black Belt Martial Art by Jon Gerrard, Yeon Hwan Park All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.
