What is Tae Kwon Do?
There are more than 300 martial arts today, and tae kwon do is among the most popular in the world. Tae kwon do is a Korean martial art that has roots dating back to over 1300 years ago, but modern tae kwon do was developed by General Choi (pronounce chay) and has only been practiced since the end of World War II. Since 1988, tae kwon do has been included in the Olympics.
Today, tae kwon do is considered an effective method of self-defense and a fun way of maintaining physical fitness. “Tae” means foot, “kwon” means fist, and “do” means a way of life. In training, legs are used about 70% and fists about 30% of the time, which is the opposite of karate. Legs are emphasized because they are longer and stronger than arms and provide the element of surprise. Most importantly, tae kwon do involves a high degree of mental training.
