2. Taekwon-Do Patterns: From (Beginner) White belt to Black Belt  - Click here

 

The martial art of Taekwon-Do was initially developed by the Korean military in the 1950s and spread internationally

with the formation of the International Taekwon-Do Federation [ITF] in 1966. Taekwon-Do has continued to develop and

 it is now one of the most popular martial arts, with some eight million students worldwide and perhaps best known for its

spectacular kicking and power demonstrations. In this highly practical and informative book, Master Hogan draws on his

vast experience to give unique insights into the performance and application of the first nine patterns (tul) that Taekwon-Do

students must master to obtain the rank of 1st degree black belt.
