tae kwon do

Tae Kwon Do is the national sport of Korea. 

Its name includes three elements:

1:   Tae = Kicking
2:   Kwon = Punching
3:   Do = The way

Together, they characterise the basic features of Tae Kwon Do: Powerful kicks and punches.  The word “Do” indicates that Tae Kwon Do is not just a way of fighting; it is a way of tuning one’s mind, body and discipline for training. 

The martial art of Tae Kwon Do evolved in Korea over the course of many centuries.  Since ancient times it has been regarded as either a deadly means of fighting or as a graceful and exciting sport. 

In modern times both aspects are prevalent: many people now study Tae Kwon Do to improve their health and learn how to defend themselves.  For others it is an exciting and enjoyable sport, with the possibility of entering international competitions.
