About This Book

This book is a compilation of all available updated data regarding taekwondo - Korea's national martial art - focusing on the scientific analysis of theories as well as the three-dimensional illustrations of major physical motions. As an updated and revised edition of the taekwondo manual originally published in 1975, it stresses the aspect of spiritual enrichment so that a taekwondo practitioner may cultivate a noble integrated character in him- or herself. The compilation was especially focused on: 1) laying more emphasis on the field of spiritual education, as well as the establishment of a more rationalized historical view of the martial art 2) improving the state of technical terminology through academic research and 3) facilitating instruction and practice by giving detailed three-dimensional illustrations of movements in accordance with the exact techniques and skills of basic forms called "pumsae," among others. The book is composed of five chapters each devoted to the history, basic instructions, basic motions (including attack techniques), pumsae (or forms), and gyeorugi [free sparring] as well as competition rules and prevention of injuries.
