Classic Video on TKD Kicking

"Anyone who bought this expecting it to contain anything more than TKD kicks should've done a little research. HJL is primarily a TKD master, so it's common sense that this video was all about TKD. Despite the video being dated, it is still a good video especially for beginners, as it shows how kicks are properly executed (albeit in the old school way). Some of the kicks are certainly not very practical, but most of them, when mastered, are a solid foundation to use in a real fight and not just in demonstration. The kicks that are more complex and not as practical shouldn't be disregarded but should be performed to practice control and balance. The repetition in this video should be considered a strong point, because it gives every opportunity for the viewer to observe how kicks are executed, whether from the front, back or side. HJL also shows how to generate power by emphasizing hip jerk and trunk twist, the use of the arms, proper bending of the knees, and the role of the back leg for leverage. There are plenty of little details presented in this video that are normally overlooked by some TKD masters when they teach their students.
If there was a TKD master from whom to learn kicks from, it would HJL. This video should be part of every TKD student's video library."
