A Killing Art The untold story of Taekwondo by Alex Gills

A Killing Art The untold story of Taekwondo by Alex Gills
The founders of what is probably the world's most popular martial art, Tae Kwon do, are fond of saying that the art is filled with old dynasties, hwarang warriors and ancient techniques. In fact the Olympic sport practised by an estimated 70 million people is only about 50 years old - 70 if you include a wicked poker game 1938. From its rough militayr beginnings, Tae Kwon Do has had high ideals and fought violence with violence, but the history of the martial art has always hidden the painful truths about its history. It bagan with a man named Choi Hong-Hi in a tiny village in a remote village of what is now North Korea. Called "Korean Karate" in the beginning, Choi renamed it Tae Kwon Do in a Korean geisha house in 1955. Within a few decades, the art with the devastating kicks bacame a weapon of military dictatorships and secret service agents…
A Killing Art is part biography, part history, and part memoir - and always a wild ride to enlightenment.
