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




My pleasure. Im glad I could be of help.

Regards,

Stuart

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.




Sorry if I misunderstood.

VDJ

Hi Stuart, and welcome. We have met on Iain's forum. Nice to see you here. I haven't seen the book yet, but the preview looks great.

Well, some of you seem to have guessed the reason for my absence of late. I hope not to disappoint. Even more so now that Stuart has beaten me to the post! Although my focus is a little different and is WTF-oriented.

Cheers, people. See you in the relatively near future.

Hi Stuart,

I am thinking very hard about purchasing your book. Do you have a sample page posted somewhere that we could look at? All I've seen is the cover of the book.

Thank you for taking the time to talk with us on here, and good luck with the book.

Laura

Hi Laura,

Im afraid not and TBH, a sample page or two wouldnt IMO do it justice as it covers many areas of TKD.

I guess you`ll just have to take others reviews on board and make a judgement call!

There are more reviews to be found here: Hae Sul Reviews

thats the best I can offer for now, sorry,

Stuart

Hi.I got the book and its a gold mine.
It is very in depth and alot of effort has gone into it and it shows.
Maximum respect.
The greatest thing i think is it will open the imagination for students to find their own applications too as well as take the ones offered on board.And its given me lots of ideas for higher patterns.

There are some small differences in technique from how im taught and i hope this doesnt effect the applications.
The chambers in the book for a low, middle or high block or a strike where the arms cross have the reaction arm horizontal and the elbow up where as im taught to keep the elbow down and the arm vertical.
Also the W shape block has the arms staying as they are when you move where as im taught to chamber in almost the same way you would for an inner forearm inward block.

There are other little differences though that would be going really anal..haha.
In tournements i always notice differences in patterns and some are major, some are small and i think no wonder patterns divide opinions.
TKD seems to be the most divided of martial arts haha.

Iv also been taught the turning kick is to a target thats off centre ,not infront.
You seem to have done alot of research im interested in your views.Cheers.

Good Luck!
