Korea-inspired taekwondo requires patience, self-discipline, dedicated training - and seriously flexible legs!

An Overview of Taekwondo

Taekwondo is the national sport of South Korea. In Korean Taekwondo may be translated as "the art of the foot and fist" or "the art of kicking and punching."

The second Olympic discipline, taekwondo requires effective self-defence, strength development and cardiovascular fitness, all developed through a combination of mental and physical training.


As well as the sporting and self-defence aspects to Taekwondo the exercise one gets from martial arts training improves balance, flexibility, stamina, strength and posture.


For competition contestants wear a red or blue trunk protector (hogu) and head protector, a groin guard, forearm guards, shin guards, hand protectors, and a mouth protector.


Taekwondo first appeared in the Olympics as a demonstration sport at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games.
