The Heart of Taekwondo

How can a martial art enhance the quality of life?

TCGB President Grandmaster Mark Biddlecombe (8th Dan), one of the highest ranked Taekwondo Instructors in the UK, has recently published a book called ‘The Heart of Taekwondo’ to explain what the Korean martial art of Taekwondo can do for you.

The arrangement of ‘Taegeuk’ and ‘Black Belt’ patterns are illustrated with over 450 photographs and the benefits of physical exercise, appropriate dietary intake and rest are discussed with the aid of charts and diagrams. Taekwondo has transformed from part of Korea’s culture to one of the most popular martial arts in the world, and an Olympic Sport.

The Heart of Taekwondo provides information for the novice and advanced practitioner. There are so many new aspects, features and explanations within The Heart of Taekwondo that do not exist within any other material of this type. Many aspects, thoughts and ideas are original. Taekwondo philosophy and specific techniques that have historically been shrouded in mystery are revealed – the secrets are out!
