FIGHTING BACK: TAEKWONDO FOR WOMEN explains how a woman can protect herself from Sexual Harassment, Assault & Rape with taekwondo techniques. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art with a rich heritage rooted in more than 2000 years of tradition. The work is the first of its kind in that it offers practical solutions to not only what constitutes sexual harassment & other forms of assault, but what can be done to prevent & protect against them. The co-author was the Coach of the 1988 US Taekwondo Olympic Team & has been recognized by THE NEW YORK TIMES as the premier authority on self-defense in the nation. The book discusses the positive mental/attitudinal changes that result from practice in this artistic side of taekwondo, by doing "forms," meditation & visualization techniques. This work also delves into the physical improvement that results from regular training & offers several useful pointers to warming up, stretching, & general fitness. It shows how women can live freer, happier lifestyles by emancipating themselves from the psychological constraints which the fear of violent crime imposes. The book is endorsed by THE WORLD TAEKWONDO FEDERATION & the INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE. It features color photographs & diagrams throughout. ISBN 0-9637151-1-9. Available through Baker & Taylor, Ingram, SCB Distributors 1-800-729-6423 & YH Park Publications 1-516-735-3434.
