Plus, it's endorsed by the World Taekwondo Federation (Taekwondo's only recognized international governing body), and co-authored by the head coach of the U.S. Taekwondo team. Here are background notes on Taekwondo's history, philosophy, and symbols, as well as coverage on breaking, sparring, and competition--including officiating guidelines, contestant qualifications, and more. It's sure to be THE major book on Taekwondo! The authors both live in Virginia Beach, VA. 256 pages, 1,218 b/w illus., 8 x 10.
