Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chung Do Kwan is an "ancestor" form of tae kwon do, the world's most popular martial art. The style is legendary for its explosive power and focus, and students practicing Chung Do Kwan develop impressive self-control, strength, and concentration while remaining balanced and centered.

Chung Do Kwan: The Power of Tae Kwon Do starts with the history and philosophical basis of Chung Do Kwan, explaining what gives this style its unique strength and effectiveness.

The book also presents the fundamental building blocks of the style — the basic kicks, punches, blocks, and combinations — along with a three-step training method, techniques for attacking and defending, and free sparring.
