What is taekwondo?
Taekwondo is a well-rounded martial art that originates from South Korea. It combines the art of self-defence and combat, The name Taekwondo is derived from the Korean word "Tae" meaning foot, "Kwon" meaning fist and "Do" meaning way of. So, literally Taekwondo means "the way of the foot and fist". The name Taekwondo, however, has only been used since 1955 while the arts' roots began 2,300 years ago in Korea.
WT Taekwondo first appeared in the Olympics as a demonstration sport at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. It made its debut as an official Olympic sport at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Since then it has also featured in Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio 2016. Tokyo 2020 next!
