What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo is a martial art independently developed over 20 centuries ago in Korea. Over the years it has become a popular international sport. Taekwondo is a free-fighting combat sport using the bare hands and feet to repel the opponent. Taekwondo literally means the way of kicking and punching.
It consists of sharp strong angular movements with free flowing circular movements to produce a balance of beauty and power. With the addition of Taekwondo’s trademark kicking techniques it is a complete system of self defense and personal improvement. All of its activities are based on the defensive attitude that originally developed for protection against enemy attacks.
