Hi,

I hope you dont mind me popping on here. A friend pointed me in this direction and I see there are some questions that I may be able to answer.

Though obviously I can be considered biased, as its my book, you can read others reviews at this link: http://www.raynerslanetkd.com/HaeSul/HaeSul_reviews.html so you dont have to take my word for anything.

Anyway, onto TeK9's points:

1. Whats so good about the book?
IMO it covers many uncovered areas of TKD with indepth information. Though I guess its best to let others say.

2. Does it show direct applications for each movement?
Yes

3. How, altered are the tecniques in order to work in a self defense application?
Not much or not at all for many. Though there are multiple applications offered, some require small alterations, but not by much. Most as I said require none at all

4. Are the small nuances of the techniques disussed or even mentioned?
Yes, there is much text to help with the photos and discuss details, which are pretty indepth & easy to follow anyway.

5. These small tecniques are often not scene and in may books over looked by the authors
I agree, that is why I have gone into so much detail. Hopefully others will confirm this.

6. ...but against a willing opponent who is alowing you to train on.
Training the applications is also covered in the book, as well as many other areas like pattern history, differences to other arts and other interesting bits.

I hope that helps.

Regards,

Stuart

However, I think the difference with this book versus your SD book is the explanation of the application rather than a how to.




As mentioned in the previous post, the book not only covers applications, but how to train them and how to utilize them in real situations.

No point giving the tools by not letting anyone know how to use them!

Thanks,

Stuart

Always posted as VDJ. I stopped posting over there awhile ago as well (but would take a looskie every now and again), It was getting waaaay out of hand with the insults and such and no moderators.I went to take my periodical look yesterday and saw the notice that the discussion forum was shut down due to "Abuses".

No convincing needed here, I always believed that there were applications, now Tek on the other hand .................. He just recently came to see the light after I and several others here helped him to see the errors of his ways, but as you can see, he still holds a bit of skepticism. I will be looking to get a copy, I wish you much success with it.

VDJ,

I hope you didn't get the wrong impression that I was critiquing Stuart Anslows book, I have yet to see it. What I was doing was reminding Sjon about these things incase he pops up on the board and catches my post. I am very much looking forward to sjon's.

Currently, I've been checking Barnes and Nobles for Mr. Anslows book on the Chun Chi forms but they don't carry it. I don't want to order it because then they assume I want to purchase it and I like to look over what I buy.

I mentioned Sjon's name while I was on topic about authors many times over looking those small techniques because many illustrated books do not contain them. I understand some form of the technique must be altered in order for it to be applicabale to self defense, howeve, I hope tat it does not deviate to much, otherwise I would prefer to teach and practice the actual technique itself rather than practicing it in a poomse/hyung form.

StuartA,

Wow, what better way to get my answers than from the horses mouth. Thanks for taking the time and contributing to the forum and answering all of my questions. Often many students recommend books and yet never say why, I figured I would ask, but I never thought the auhor would answer. I look forward to reading and hopfully purchasing your book.

-Tek

Honestly, I didnt get that impresion either. Questioning is healthy and fine.

Yes they do - Hae Sul on Barnes & Noble Site . If you are refering to a traditional book store, they often require people to ask about it (as opposed to order it - which also helps) before they put a copy on the shelf, as space is limited, even in the biggest bookshops.

A tip when searching for it on online sites is to use the term 'Hae Sul'.


Hope that helps,

Regards,

Stuart
