Though generally perceived and advertised as means of self-defense, body sculpting, and self-discipline, martial arts are actually social tools that respond to altered physical, social, and psychological environments. This book examines how practitioners have responded to stimuli such as feminism, globalism, imperialism, militarism, nationalism, slavery, and the commercialization of sport.

This book provides bio-mechanical principles that are the foundation for the development of high-performance Taekwondo techniques. Hip motion is paramount in Taekwondo, but transferring the power of the hip to the kicking foot presents a great challenge. Readers of this book will be able to master this challenge. The reader will also learn the precise positions of the body which serve as leverage points. The pages following include detailed pictures portraying bio-mechanics - such as proper weight transfer. The author details mind power, visualization and other methods that develop the level of self-awareness necessary to become a well-balanced athlete and person. I recommend this book. It respects TaekwondoÍs origins, yet takes a fully science-based approach, providing a detailed guide to the sportÍs underlying movement principles. Read it and be informed!

Taekwondo Poomse is a prearranged series of attack and defense movements against an imaginary opponent in a set pattern. The practice of Poomse improves breathing and physical control, strength, coordination, timing and balance. It also increases internal strength by conditioning the internal organs and the student masters the ability to use different types of power including stationary or sudden bursts (momentary power). It uses both flowing as well as quick abrupt movements. The primary forms of Taekwondo are known as the Tae Geuk series. For each belt grading or next level of advancement the Taekwondo student must be able to master the Poomse for that level. This book covers the first 8 Taekwondo Poomse leading up to the 1st Kup, just before the black belt level. With hundreds of cartoon illustrations it is an ideal and easy to use guide for both children and adults learning Taekwondo Poomse from the 8th-1st Kup.

This book was written in 2002 by Kim Un-yong, former vice president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and updated shortly before his passing in 2017. A former diplomat, he turned his hand to sports administration when he became president of the Korean Taekwondo Association (1971). He quickly founded the Kukkiwon (1972) and the World Taekwondo Federation (1973), and worked tirelessly to develop taekwondo, a Korean martial art, into a popular global sport. The IOC’s approval of taekwondo as an Olympic sport in 1994 was his crowning glory. Kim Un-yong was instrumental in the successful bid for and staging of the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Elected as an IOC member in 1986, and swiftly rising to become an executive board member (1988) and vice president (1992), he was a consummate sports diplomat on behalf of Korea and Korean sports for over 30 years. This book will help readers understand the world of sports and the importance of sports diplomacy. Kim Un-yong describes his experiences with world sports figures, including former IOC president Juan Antonio Samaranch, behind the scenes negotiations with North Koreans for the first historic joint march of North and South Korean athletes at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, and how he was able to seize valuable opportunities for Korea and Korean sports so successfully. He also describes the IOC presidential election in Moscow in 2001, where he came in second. Pyeongchang’s failed bid in 2003 for the 2010 Winter Olympics resulted in a cynical blame game among domestic politicians that led to his imprisonment in 2004. The prosecution against him drew condemnations from around the world and was strongly criticised by the United Nations Human Rights Commission. He was later pardoned and reinstated in 2008. Despite setbacks and adversity (“challenges”), Kim Un-yong is full of positive memories of his colourful life. When life did not go as planned, he often took the second best option and turned them into remarkable successes. (“Taking the next best option and giving it my all brought surprisingly good results.”)

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the historical, political, and technical evolution of taekwondo. Many of the supposedly ‘traditional’ and ‘ancient’ Korean cultural elements attached to taekwondo are, in fact, remnants of East Asia’s modernization drive, and largely inherited from the Japanese martial arts. The current historical portrayal has created an obstacle to a clear understanding of the history of taekwondo, and presents problems and contradictions in philosophy and training methodology. Using rich empirical data, including interviews with leading figures in the field, this book brings together martial arts philosophy with an analysis of the technical aspects and the development of taekwondo, and provides a detailed comparison of karate and taekwondo techniques. It debunks nationalistic mythology surrounding taekwondo to provide a reinterpretation of taekwondo’s evolution.

Considering the slow start Korea had in 1945 when it had to go hat in hand to the public just to raise enough money to send its athletes to the Olympics, Korean sports have come a remarkable way in a relatively short amount of time. Today, Korea has become an economic power that is capable of hosting every major sporting event, including the Summer and Winter Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup. Not only is the country hosting these events?they are excelling at them. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the hard training and passion of both the nation’s athletes and supporters.
