Format: Paperback
I just finished rereading "Palgue 1-2-3" by Kim Pyung Soo for the first time in quite a few years and was reminded of the firs time I had purchased this and the other two books in the series when I was first starting out upon my martial arts journey whose primary focus in those early days was Karate and Tae Kwon Do. These books were some of the first ones I owned concerning the martial arts and kata or forms in particular.

After the customary introduction, the author includes a very brief section on the history of Korea and Tae Kwon Do in particular. Since the primary focus of this book is to be on the katas or forms, I was too bothered by the briefness of most of the fringe subjects that the author discusses throughout the book. Subjects such as; target areas, various hand and foot positions used when striking, basic warm-up and stretching exercises, stances and blocks, etc.

I was however surprised to find no real references to kicks with the exception of the three foot positions shown, surprisingly the instep and the back of the heel weren't even mentioned, and the Front Kicks shown in Palgue #2. In addition to that, there were only two strikes shown, those being the Out-to-In Knifehand Strike to the temple and the midsection Lunge Punch. I really don't know why the author included these and the other brief sections in this book other than perhaps as reference material since it doesn't really add to the focus of the book.

Now this is just my personal and professional opinion, but I feel that any book dealing with katas or forms, should focus solely on the movements in the particular kata being discussed and the applications of each movement. There truly is no need to go into striking surfaces, hand and foot positions, stretching, etc.

Format: Paperback
This was written by Grandmaster Kim Soo, currently the youngest 10th dan Tae Kwon Do black belt in the world and founder of the Cha Yon Ryu ("Natural Way") system. This book starts with a brief historical backgrodun of Tae Kwon Do and then goes on to basic sections on striking points, warm-up exercises, stance, blocks, and strikes. The majority of the book is dedicated to detailed step-by-step instruction in the first three palgue forms.

Grandmaster Kim Soo, founder of the Chayon-Ryu martial arts system, and 10th degree black belt authored this book on the early Taekwondo Palgue forms series. Chayon-Ryu is one of the last systems preserving these forms, as they are disappearing from martial arts world wide.
A comprehensive break down of the mechanics of the first three Palgue forms, self defense practical tactics, and more, this book I highly recommend for beginner through intermediate taekwondo students.
