Taekwon-Do: From White Belt to Yellow Belt.
A Full-colour Guide to Mastering the Korean Martial Art

Though its origins go back to ancient times in China and India, Taekwon-Do as we know it today was initiated by the Korean General Hong-Hi Choi who led the way in Korea to develop martial arts generally in a modern style. Taekwon-Do offers both mental and physical benefits and appeals to people of all ages as well as all abilities. It helps develop strength, flexibility and endurance and helps to concentrate the mind and focus on what you do. In fact, one of the tenets of Taekwon-Do is that you should finish whatever task you start be it great or small. Taekwon-Do aims to explain the background to the subject and show readers the basic movements which will lead the beginner through the first steps of Taekwon-Do towards the first coloured belt - that of yellow. Illustrated with approximately 400 colour photographs shown in step-by-step sequences, this book will prove an invaluable aid to those beginning Taekwon-Do.

Presentatie/reservering Taekwon-Do boek,
de Weg naar succes deel 1, 2, 3 en 4
Auteurs Sabum Paul van Beersum en Sabum Willem Jansen zijn de afgelopen 5 jaar bezig geweest om een opvolger te maken van het Taekwon-Do basisboek de Weg naar succes (2009). Dit basisboek oogstte nationaal en de Engelse vertaling internationaal veel lof. Beide internationaal erkende instructeurs en 1ste graad bewegingsdeskundigen in pedagogisch perspectief hebben het initiatief genomen om de opgedane kennis en ervaring te laten neerdalen in een tweede boek. De afgelopen 5 jaar hebben zij, met hulp van hun leerlingen, mede-dojanghouders en zelfs een aantal Europees en Wereldkampioenen, drie nieuwe delen vervolmaakt. Waar het Basisboek, voor het eerst op uitgebreide wijze en in het Nederlands, de basis legde voor de oefenstof die nodig is voor het 1e danexamen, gaan de drie nieuwe delen oa. in op de oefenstof voor respectievelijk de 2e, 3e en 4e dan en meer! Hieronder vindt u een korte samenvatting van de inhoud van elk boek.
