Tae Kwon Do for Women is intended to correct that problem. Beginner, intermediate and advanced practitioners will all find helpful information. The book covers principles, techniques and drills for the Tae Kwon Do practitioner, written with women specifically in mind. The book includes more than 400 photographs and a complete resource directory.

Kick Start Your Own Martial Arts School: How to Set Up and Run a Successful Martial Arts Business

Just like teaching is something that needs to be learned, running a profitable full- or part-time martial arts school is an entirely new skill set that many instructors lack. This lack of knowledge literally costs martial arts instructors thousands every month in lost revenue and unnecessary spending. The dream of one day running your own martial arts school or club, is something many martial arts instructors nurture. Most instructors however have never been told how to successfully set up a martial arts business from scratch or how to run a school with dozens of happy and paying students. This essential guide gives you all the information you need to operate a thriving martial arts business and covers every stage of the process from starting your business and attracting students to planning lessons and building a long-term reputation and financial future. What makes this guide unique is that it has been written by someone who has actually been there and done it for himself without any previous experience and with zero start up capital.

This groundbreaking book teaches the Korean martial art Taekwondo to novices above the age of forty. Primarily written for Taekwondo trainers, Sekwondo is also easily understood and useful for the student. Why should one embark on practicing Taekwondo in the second half of one's life? The reason is simple - you may live longer and healthier. In contrast to many other types of sports, Taekwondo is unique in its dynamic nature. It embodies all the various elements of physical fitness, such as muscle strength and endurance, flexibility, agility, balance, coordination, motor speed, and cardio-respiratory function. With very little material written and available about sensible and safe Taekwondo training for seniors, Sekwondo offers a fun, accessible, and effective exercise program, while introducing a fascinating and transformative discipline. About the Author: Prof. Jan Lodder, MD, PhD, grew up close to Rotterdam and currently resides in a rural village in Belgium. He received his MD in 1974 from the Erasmus University Rotterdam where, in 1977, he also received his PhD degree.

Best Instructor + Best School + Best Life!: Proven Principles for Martial Arts & Success
Despite a background of limited resources and opportunities, Grand Master Woojin Jung was able to take on the many challenges of life, as well as try many new and different things, precisely because of martial arts. He is very proud of being a martial artist, and holds other martial artists of all martial arts styles in the highest regard. Best Instructor + Best School = Best Lift! is intended to offer helpful advice to any martial artist practicing any of the many styles of martial arts. It will tell you how to find and keep the best school and instructor for you, your family and all students of martial arts. This book is not a textbook on martial arts. Most Korean pioneers of martial arts faced many difficulties and uncertainties in the first years of their professional lives, primarily because there were no set methods of managing a dojang, and there was no general agreement on curricula. It is Jung's hope that this book will provide a concise self-study course for the reader to learn management skills and strategies specific to martial arts training and teaching. Jung has included many anecdotes from his real-life experiences. In addition, he defines specific strategies and management guidelines for instructors on the front line of martial arts, as well as for their students and potential students.
