Besides these benefits, participants can train for competition and learn effective self-defense techniques.The authors have chosen 38 of taekwondo's most effective breakfalls, stances, strikes, kicks, blocks, and steps. Each of these, singly and in combination, is described and illustrated with clear language and photos. The book serves well as a companion to formal instruction or as a stand-alone text.In "Taekwondo Techniques & Tactics" you'll learn: - the proper way to stretch, - how conditioning will improve your performance, and- foolproof strategies for defeating your opponent in the ring. Novices will have no trouble recognizing how to perform techniques. The chapters on the origins, traditions, and language of taekwondo provide a good introduction to the art, including advice on getting started and choosing an instructor. Experienced students will appreciate the level of detail and the tips for improving their techniques. They'll also appreciate the chapters on tactics, conditioning, and preparing for competition.Sidebars on self-defense point out adaptations for effective street defense, whenever these differ from competition techniques or tactics.
