Totally Tae Kwon Do

Totally Tae Kwon Do Issue #26
In the latest copy (Issue #26) of Totally Tae Kwon Do magazine you can read my essay "Confusing ITF Terminology" (p. 37-40) based on an earlier post on this blog -- "Confusing Terminology: Crescent Kick, Vertical Kick, Hooking Kick, Hook Kick." You can also read the third part of the four part series by Sabeomnim Tristian Vardy, vice president of the SA-ITF, on children's physiology and Taekwon-Do (begins on page 55) that I edited for The Sidekick magazine.

Other highlights in this issue is Richard Conceicao's "The Knife Hand Chamber" (p. 35, 36), concerned with the knife-hand guarding block. In his short essay he clearly illustrates a good understanding of the circle principle, which I'm sure frequent readers of this blog will enjoy too.

Once one notices the circles, you can't help but see them every where!

Thanks for dropping by.
