This DVD has gotten me through more than one belt test. It's a great way to review each poomse at home so you don't have to spend a lot time bothering the higher ranking students in your class for help when you forget a movement. I use it to practice each new form as I learn it from my instructor and to review all of my lower belt forms for testing. The different views (front, side, rear, etc) make it easy to see the movements and Master Kim's performance is top notch. Just don't let anyone borrow your copy or you'll have to nag them to get it back.

This video by Master Sang H Kim is an excellent review of the first 8 WTF forms for colored belt testing. As such, it does not teach the basics (how to step, block, punch, etc). Instead it gives three demonstrations on how to perform the form (at full speed) and a step by step walkthrough. I have found it very beneficial to my review of forms, and have learned some new ones which were not included in my training. I use it on a regular basis and recommend it.

That being said, the production quality is not the highest, and it appears to have been filmed in someone's backyard (a very nice backyard, however!). However, the purpose of the video is to review forms in a concise educational manner, and I feel that an excellent job was done with this goal in mind.

I had this title on video and it was one of the first DVDs I bought after getting my player for christmas. Not only is the DVD picture clearer and sharper, the audio quality is better than on the tape as well.
But the best part is the way the menu lets you jump around without spending time searching by way of fast forward or rewind. If you're reviewing for a test or need a quick refresher of the forms, you can work on #4 then jump right to #2 or #8 without having to keep stopping and checking for the form you need, like you would with a tape. I also liked the bonus footage of the applications. While we don't practice these at my school, it's nice to know what the movements are supposed to be for. A great DVD - I definitely recommend to anyone doing WTF style TKD.

I got my black belt in ITF style taekwondo and have recently moved to a WTF style. I bought this DVD to learn the WTF forms to test for black belt at my new school and in less than four months, I'm up to red belt level. This is a great learning tool. I can practice at home without bothering my instrutor or the upper belts at my new school. Sang H. Kim's performance is very crisp and his instruction is detailed and goes beyond just do this move then do that move. He explains the little things that will help you make your performance above average. My instructor has complimented me more than once on my forms and I credit this DVD with helping me perfect the little things as well as the sequence of the movements.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Nguyen on September 12, 2002
The DVD is an awesome format for martial arts instructional tapes and this DVD makes full use of the format's advantages. Each form is shown from side and front, with slow motion and step by step instructional views. The best part is, you can use the menu to go directly to the poomse you're working on without having to fast forward like you would on a tape. There is one minor production glitch - the first poomse, Taegeuk Il Jang has Taeguek Ee Jang shown in the follow along view. This shouldn't affect your use of the DVD however, because you can just as easily follow along with the instructional view, which is the same view but with a step by step instructional voice over. Overall, the best poomse reference out there, and I've seen quite a few!

Great video. Follows the Taegeuk Poomses perfectly. You will have to do a lot of rewinding because they go through the motions quickly but if you can handle that you'll learn them quickly.

This instructional DVD has got me thru all my TKD belt tests with the ROK Marines who are our instructors. That said, it will help anyone willing to study. Quality is top-notch. It first introduces each Poomse and follows by a step-by-step section and then a complete front view and then a complete side view. I've watched this DVD for my tests and before each training session. Turtlepress.com has not failed me yet!
