About the Book
One of the most valuable assets of TaeKwonDo training is the health and healing aspect discovered in the training. Practitioners find themselves feeling better, living better, and even thinking better as a result of their participation.
As a watchful guardian of the traditional teachings of TaeKwonDo, Brett D. Hill, a master instructor in the World TaeKwonDo Federation, has amassed over forty-four years of his life's quest into Discover the Heart & Soul of a TaeKwonDo Life.
The book provides great insight to the life changing practices found in TaeKwonDo training and defends them with science. The reader will discover the signature kicks of TaeKwonDo, and the forms that teach the practitioner good habits in technique combinations. The book also teaches opponent takedowns, leg sweeps, and pressure points as well as an entire chapter on women's self-defense. The reader learns about the significance of belt colors and the ranking system then moves on to understanding the broad reach of TaeKwonDo in today's world, as an art and a sport. The book closes by covering the misconceptions of TaeKwonDo and how the traditional art faces the risk of being misrepresented and degraded over time.
This book is perfect for anyone looking to improve their physical health, women desiring another level of protection in everyday situations, or the TaeKwonDo student looking to improve their knowledge or just needing a refresher. Discover the Heart & Soul of a TaeKwonDo Life preserves training techniques for everyone of all ages while ensuring that both student and instructor never forget the most important part of TaeKwonDo: the foundational discipline and morals that cultivate better people to make a better world.
Living a TaeKwonDo Life is an absolute phenomenal read. Master Hill takes his experience and knowledge of the art and transforms it into a true educational work of art. No matter the experience level of the reader, either a beginner just starting their journey, or an experienced Black Belt with many years of training in the art, this book is beneficial for all levels of training. Beginning with the history of the art, continuing through the chapter of "Do" (my personal favorite) all the way through to kicking techniques, and forms, and the modern misconceptions of TaeKwonDo, this book literally has something for everyone. Master Hills knowledge and true love for the art is truly second to none, and it really transforms into the pages of this book. Thank you Master Hill for sharing your knowledge and true-life experiences with the reader. I give this read 5 Stars. *****
