OUT OF STOCK A Killing Art: The Untold History of Tae Kwon Do, Updated and Revised Paperback – August 9, 2016

Personally Signed by the author.

Tae Kwon Do’s founders and Olympic leaders are fond of saying that this martial art is thousands of years old and filled with old dynasties and ancient warriors. They had their reasons for the myths and lies. A Killing Art (2016), updated and revised, reveals some of the truths about Taekwondo and Taekwon-Do, a killing art created in the South Korean military in the 1950s.

Pattern Workout Book

Full text of all 24 ITF patterns plus pattern histories, information and a few pictures too.
54 pages on gloss art paper.

This is text from the latest (and final) version of the Condensed Encyclopaedia by General Choi Hong Hi.
