Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. Taekwondo is loosely translated as "the way of the foot and fist" but some translate it as, "the art of kicking and punching," Taekwondo's popularity is a result of evolution of martial arts.

It combines combat techniques, self-defence, sport, exercise, meditation and philosophy.

Modern Taekwondo tends to emphasize control and self-defence. The art in general emphasizes kicks thrown from a mobile stance, employing the leg's greater reach and power (compared to the arm).

Taekwondo training generally includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches, and open-handed strikes and may also include various take-downs or sweeps, throws, and joint locks.

Taekwondo was incorporated into the Asian Games in 1986.

List of disciplines

  • Taekwondo

The modern form of Taekwondo wasn’t agreed until 1955, but the sport has its roots in various Korean forms of martial arts stretching back more than 2,000 years. ‘Taekwondo’ translates into English as “the art of the foot and the fist" – an accurate description of the way it is played. Powerful kicks and punches are literally the name of the game.
