More About Taekwondo by Gilles R. Savoie
 
 
 
Overview
In Taekwondo: A Technical Manual, renowned Master Gilles Savoie presents the art and science of the popular martial art, showing practitioners how to optimize both body and spirit. While other taekwondo books simply document traditional forms andexercises, this one goes further, providing an in-depth look at the body mechanics and physics of taekwondo movements. Armed with this information, says Master Savoie, the practitioner can improve control, optimize speed, increase power, and maintain balance. The book details the author's innovative "hip propel" technique, designed to utilize the parts of the body as a four-lever system able to efficiently displace weight and create force. Taekwondo: A Technical Manual not only teaches optimal taekwondo technique but emphasizes visualization, balance, and overall well-being to enhance athletic abilities, fusing the physical and philosophical components of the art. Also included is an introduction to reflexology theory, teaching basic techniques to help taekwondo practitioners relax and self-treat common muscle aches and pains. Seventy black-and-white photographs and diagrams illustrate each of the movements and techniques described.
