|Taekwondo Bible, Vol.2||
Objective of This Volume
The objective of this volume is to suggest precise explanation and concrete intepretation, with tangeable examples, on essential parts of Taekwondo philosophy given in Philosophical Principles of Taekwondo, in academical and technical ways. Here, when I say academical explanation it means each part of the entire explanation compose a consistent whole building up a complete system. On the other hand, when I say technical explanation it means the explanation corresponds to the concrete techniques showing it is inner framework of the skills. If Taekwondo philosophy were not academical it lose the value of its being a good philosophical system. And if it were not technical, even when it were academical, it cannot be more than a vacant theory that doesn't have full relation to concrete techniques of Taekwondo.
It is well known that Taekwondo is the most famous Korean traditional martial art and it is patterns of human activity based on the Korean traditional philosophy. It is why man of Taekwondo men, whenever they discuss the origin of Taekwondo, have quoted the script of Nannangbi's preface that Choi, Chi-Won wrote, to emphasize the close relation between Taekwondo and Korean traditional philosophies. The preface of Nannangbi is like the following;
To sum up, they have been insisting you can best confirm the philosophy of Pung Ryu Do or Sin Sun Do, which is the essence of Taekwondo philosophy, in this script. In spite of the truth of their vague argument, however, they couldn't actually support their further argument with academical investigations that can explain the close relation between Taekwondo and philosophy of Sin Sun Do. It is the point where this volume can meet some academical demands of Taekwondo philosophy. I mean, I will show you in my own way how the philosophies of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism are related to Taekwondo, along the main conception of the Korean traditional thinking way. And the main part of my explanation will be concentrated on Samjae and Kang-Yu. This is why the title of this volume is On Samjae & Kang-Yu.
