"The best book on taekwon-do since the encyclopaedia" This groundbreaking first book studies the history and development of the Ch'ang Hon (ITF) Taekwon-do patterns as devised, taught and developed by the founder of Taekwon-do; General Choi, Hong Hi. Ch'ang Hon Taekwon-do Hae Sul is an in-depth study of the Ch'ang Hon Taekwon-do patterns; their history and their roots; Taekwon-do's evolution; its genetic make-up; its differences with other martial arts; and the techniques and movements that define the system. For the first time since its inception, this book details realistic interpretations for the ITF patterns including Chon-Ji, Dan-Gun, Do-San, Won-Hyo, Yul-Gok, Joong-Gun, Toi-Gye, as well as Saju Jirugi and Sagu Makgi. Over 17 chapters covering 360+ pages, with over 1,600 detailed photographs, the patterns are examined, dissected and rebuilt to help both students and instructors understand the applications that are really contained within the Ch'ang Hon patterns - many of which were previously unknown and undocumented. In step-by-step photographic detail, learn what the techniques and combinations of the Ch'ang Hon patterns actually represent and how to turn your patterns into a realistic way of training actual self defence techniques that work, and turn them into something much more than they are practiced today. Along the way, the reader is treated to a fascinating insight into the history of the Ch'ang Hon patterns as well as Taekwon-do itself, with many of its previously unknown, undocumented or understudied principles revealed. Read what helped to shape the art which became so feared on the battlefield of Vietnam that enemy soldiers were told not to engage the Korean soldiers, whether armed or not, due to their knowledge of Taekwon-do. A historical study of Taekwon-do and its patterns - as well as a training manual and an encyclopaedia of realistic applications - make this book a must-read for all those that study and practice Taekwon-do. A milestone for the development of Taekwon-do.
