Pattern / Poomsae Application Books
The following list is of Tae Kwon Do books that cover the application of Patterns (tul), Poomsae, Hyung or Forms in a more realistic sense.
The survey rates books according to their value (in terms of information) and differs from Amazon's top 100 lists, which lists the 'Best Sellers' as opposed to the 'Best Books', as cheaper books often sell more than more expensive ones, but in actuality are a false economy.
These books formed part of the survey, but are listed here as 'alternatives' to the standard applicaions for patterns/forms/poomsae often given.
To find out more about a book listed here or to order a book from this site click on its cover or title (see note regarding Amazons below).
This list is linked to Amazon USA (with the exception of books that cannot be purchased via that site, so have alternative links). To view the list thats linked to your closest Amazon, please click one of the options below.
