Taekwondo The State of the Art Description

'On the back' of Taekwondo The State of the Art



Taekwondo: The State of the Art is the first comprehensive book on modern Taekwondo to appear since it became a truly international sport and Olympic event. Lifelong practitioners of Taekwondo, the authors, Masters Sung Chul Whang and Jun Chul Whang, have trained all over the world, have achieved recognition as competitive fighters and coaches, and are now part of the new generation of young leaders in the Taekwondo community. Master Dae Sung Lee, ten-time U.S. National Team member and two-time Olympic coach, contributes unique insight that he cultivated through years of experience.

In Taekwondo: The State of the Art, they present the most current
methods, tactics, and strategies for everything from the required taegeuk forms to Olympic-style sparring. Beginners and experienced students can enhance their

Taekwondo training and education with the help of sections on:
* Kicking styles taught by Olympic coaches and used by national champions and Olympic hopefuls
* The most common problems students encounter as they try to develop fluid technique, timing, speed, and power
* Steps and footwork, from the most basic to complex sparring maneuvers
* Poomse technique, with tips and suggestions for excellent performance and elaboration of difficult moves
* The three key sparring strategies, which will help students learn how to think in the ring
* Cross-training for the serious competitor
* The philosophy of Taekwondo, based on the modern evolution of the ancient Hwarang code

Illustrated throughout-and with a foreword and substantial contributions from Master Dae Sung Lee - Taekwondo: The State of the Art is an invaluable learning and teaching resource.
Twin brothers Masters Sung Chul Whang and Jun Chul Whang have studied Taekwondo since they were six years old, and they currently own and operate Manhattan's West Side Taekwondo, the largest Taekwondo school in New York City. Brandon Saltz is an instructor at West Side Taekwondo and a national poomse champion. Master Dae Sung Lee is a world renowned former Olympic coach.
