If you are a typical student of Taekwon-Do, or any other other martial art that practises semi-free, continuous sparring, then this book is for you. Written specifically for club-level martial artists, Effective Taekwon-Do Sparring bridges the gap between the wider Taekwon-Do syllabus and the particular demands of sparring. In order to do this, the authors go right back to basics. The fundamentals of stance, movement and defence are analysed in detail and significantly adapted for the sparring arena. Core attacking techniques are reviewed and, if necessary, modified in order to improve their effectiveness in typical sparring scenarios. Finally, basic elements of sparring strategy such as assessing opponents, creating openings, effective combinations and counter-attacks are examined.

Based on Master Hogan's decades of competition and teaching experience, the book offers club-level martial artists a unique insight into the principles underpinning today's top international fighters, and encourages them to use that insight to analyse and improve every aspect of their own sparring.
