INTRODUCTION
Literally translated, Taekwondo means foot fst art (Tae = kick or strike with
the foot, Kwon = fst or strike with the hand, and Do = art or discipline.) Thus, stripped
down to its most basic roots, Taekwondo means the art of kicking and punching. It is a
unique martial art that combines the quick, straight line movements of Japanese systems
like Karate and the flowing circular movements of traditional Chinese systems. The
distinguishing feature of Taekwondo though, is its powerful kicking techniques.
Taekwondo is more than just a system of combative physical techniques. It is also
an art directed at the moral and ethical development of its students.
These teaching have been summarized over the centuries in various forms
evolving into the modern “Five Tenets” of Taekwondo, which are:Courtesy, Integrity,
Perseverance, Self-control and Indomitable Spirit.
Taekwondo is characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning
kicks, and fast kicking techniques.Taekwondo was developed during the 1940s and 1950s
by various martial artists by incorporating elements of Karate and Chinese Martial Arts
with indigenous Korean martial arts traditions such as Taekkyeon, Subak, and Gwonbeop.
The oldest governing body for taekwondo is the Korea Taekwondo Association (KTA),
formed in 1959 through a collaborative effort by representatives from the nine original
Kwans, or Martial Arts Schools, in Korea. The main international organizational body
is Kukkiwon partnering World Taekwondo Federation (WTF), founded in 1972 and
1973 respectively by the Korea Taekwondo Association. Gyeorugi, a type of full-contact
sparring, has been an Olympic event since 2000. The body known for taekwondo in the
Olympics is the World Taekwondo Federation.
