DON’T FORGET TO WATCH No. 1 – The Amazing Park Joong Soo
The amazing Park Joong Soo demonstrating tournament rules in the official ITF Film of the early 1970s.
This film probably had a sound track but we have not been able to locate it. The idea was probably to explain all the ITF tournament rules of the time, with Park Joong Soo demonstrating them.
In this snippet watch his amazing speed and technique – especially his lead leg side kick – performed in a way many athletes only developed in more recent years.
