Tae Kwon-Do Patterns: From Beginner to Black Belt

jimhogan_tkd_patternsThe 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. 192 Pages £14.99

 

Effective Tae Kwon-Do Sparring

jimhogan_sparringIf you are a typical student of Taekwon-Do, or any other martial art that practises semi-free, continuous sparring, then this book is for you. Written specifically for club-level martial artists, “Effective Taekwon-Do Sparring” bridges the gap between the wider Taekwon-Do syllabus and the particular demands of sparring. In order to do this, the authors go right back to basics. The fundamentals of stance, movement and defence are analysed in detail and significantly adapted for the sparring arena. Core attacking techniques are reviewed and, if necessary, modified in order to improve their effectiveness in typical sparring scenarios. Finally, basic elements of sparring strategy such as assessing opponents, creating openings, effective combinations and counter-attacks are examined. 160 Pages £14.99
