Taekwondo is a Korean Martial Art and the national sport of South Korea. "Tae" means "foot", "Kwon" means "fist", and "do" means "the way" or "art". So, taekwondo simply translates as "the art of the foot and fist".The history of Taekwondo begins 2,300 years ago when 3 kingdoms were at battle with one another over territory. From these battles, one kingdom began to focus on fighting systems to train their armies. From these fighting systems, came what we know today as Taekwondo.
The main goal of Taekwondo is to achieve total mind and body control, while achieving harmony through training. Taekwondo is one of the most poplular martial arts in the world, and has practitioners from nearly every country. Taekwondo made its first appearance in the 1988 Olympic games and since has continued to be one of the most exciting sports in the summer games.
