"Along with the standard side and roundhouse kicks, this Korean form of self-defense includes crescent kicks that make it visually exciting to watch....warm-up exercises, stances, and blocks....self-defense moves, and one-step [drills], all of which reinforce Tae Kwon Do movements."--School Library Journal.
