About Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a martial art originated in Korea more than 20 centuries ago. A Korean word, Taekwondo consists of 3 syllables: ‘Tae’ means ‘Foot”, “leg” or “to step on”; ‘Kwon’ means “Fist” or “Fight”; and ‘Do’ means the “Way” or “Discipline”.

Taekwondo was revived in mid-19th century and became an internationally acknowledged sport that quickly spread all over the world.

Taekwondo main form is the free-style combat using bare hands and feet in both defensive and offensive positions against attacking combatants.

A defense-based sport, Taekwondo was commonly used as a self-defense technique in antagonistic environments in ancient days where only the fittest survived; it met the individuals’ needs, was a source of physical strength and improved fighters’ natural health and fitness.

Based on a superior and easy technique, Taekwondo involves all body parts including hands, elbows, knees and feet as means of self-defense.

More than a martial art, Taekwondo appealed to people because it teaches how to gain self-confidence, approach opponents calmly, create mental balance and how to enhance your moral strength of decency, virtue and tolerance.

Furthermore, Taekwondo is a discipline; it bans fighters from initiating an unfair attack; no fighter is allowed to show off his / her supper strength or intimidate or bully others. It is a technique to build body, activate mind and discipline soul.
