This book was written in 1990 in Korean and translated into English by DanielKane and the English verstion was published in 2006 in Korea too.
As was noted in the official preface, this book was written to suggest the spiritual and mental world of Taekwondo, and lead the every Taekwondo people in the world to the right way of Taekwondo(technique, training and inner disciplines). When it was said that this book was written to establish the philosophical foundation of Taekwondo, helping the great masters of Taekwondo all over the world, it means the same thing intendedly.
The contents of this book is summary and reorganization of the teachings of Taekwondo masters. The most important one is Lee Kwang Hee, the Grandmaster of the author. So its contents is full of implicit teaching of mysterious and, sometimes, dangerous techniques of Taekwondo. But, of course, it is implicit so that those who do not have sufficient experience of Taekwondo training with sharp insight will not be able to understand what it means. This is why we recommand this book only to masters of Taekwondo.
Taekwondo Bible Project
Taekwondo Bible was planned by personnel of Kukkiwon at first. They thought that Taekwondo world need something like bible, which will guide trainings of Taekwondo people and lead them to the correct way of spiritual and physical growth. It is the Taekwondo Bible Project. But it was hard job, so it was promoted unofficially as it was very hard to begin officially. And Master Blue was selected as the author.
But Kukkiwon has been in the political conflicts among many people inside Taekwondo world all the way, so the Taekwondo Bible Project was also almost got out of the focus of Kukkiwon. It was almost canceled even before its official beginning. But before it was actually cancelled the first volume was written secretly; The Philosophical Principles of TAEKWONDO. And, although the project was cancelled, there still have been someone who didn't give up that project, inofficially as was begun at first, and the second volume was also written; On Samjae and Kang-Yu of Taekwondo. Now the project is undertaken officially by the foundation of "World Cultural Alliance of TAEKWONDO".
Taekwondo Bibles comprise many volumes of Taekwondo philosophy, history, techniques and training, etc. The contents of each volume are wholly organized to be both practical and theorectical at once. For the spirit and philosophy of Taekwondo cannot be separated from its concrete motion. They are under ther process of authorization, translation or publication now, but much of them is seen in this site; but not all of them.
