Inhaltsangabe: Through the patterns of Ch'ang Hon (ITF) Taekwon-Do, thousands of students around the world have learned more about Korea and its history than by any other resource, due in no uncertain terms to the fact that General Choi Hong Hi chose to name the patterns after famous historical figures or events from Korean history, the patterns that hundreds of thousands of Taekwon-Do students now practice!
However, with the name of each pattern, General Choi only left the smallest snippet of information on those people or events, which for years, has left many students wanting to know more. This book aims to fulfil that 'want' and provides a much deeper insight and background into the lives of the illustrious figures (or events) that so inspired General Choi.
In this book you will learn more that you ever knew about these great figures in Korean history and understand what lead to them being chosen as a name for one of General Choi's patterns, but more importantly, their great contributions to Korea and its history, just as General Choi wanted!
In General Choi's own words "A part of Korea therefore now exists across the whole world and Korea's nationality and history can never be removed by oppressors again".
Apart from expanding on the histories behind each of the Ch'ang Hon (ITF) patterns, this book corrects some small errors and reveals some interesting titbits and revelations along the way.
"It finally puts those last pieces of missing jigsaw in to place and completes the whole picture for the reader." - Master Ray Gayle, 8 th Degree
"... another much needed resource for all students of Korean Martial Arts. Yes all Korean Martial Arts! " - Master George Vitale, 8th Degree
Über den Autor:
Stuart Anslow is a 5th degree black belt in the art of Taekwon-do and is well known in the UK and internationally. He is the father of four beautiful children, a full time instructor of Taekwon-do, teaching at his Academy in Middlesex, London. He also runs Self Protection courses for groups associated with his local Council, manages martial arts at a private school, was Assistant Coach for the Harrow Borough Karate team for 5 years and is the instructor or movie star Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Last Airbender etc.).
Though a full time instructor, his reputation is gained not only by his own career (he was a World Gold and Silver medalist in 2000) but also by his uncompromising approach to teaching and the standards within his Academy and that of his students.. The student's quality is testament of his `no short cuts' approach to how martial arts in general and Taekwon-do in particular should be taught. His classes flourish with quality students despite much local competition from schools with a more relaxed approach to teaching and grading's. Many of his students feature in the photographs within the book.
Stuart was a regular writer for the UK martial arts press, having written many articles for `Taekwon-do and Korean Martial Arts', `Combat', `Martial Arts Illustrated' and `Fighters' magazines and now publishers his own Tae kwon Do magazine 'Totally Tae Kwon Do'.
In October 2003, Stuart was inducted into the world renowned Combat Magazines `Hall Of Fame 2003' for his work within the field of martial arts on a worldwide level. Combat magazine was the UK and Europe's biggest martial arts publication; he has since gone on to receive other awards from both ITF and even the president of the WTF for his work in Taekwon-Do.
