What is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that focuses on self-defense techniques using kicks, strikes, blocks, and punches.

The name “Taekwondo” includes three Korean words: “Tae” which means to strike or break with foot, “Kwon” which means to strike or break with fist, and “Do” which means the way or the path.

Taekwondo places a strong emphasis on discipline, respect, and self-control, and it’s often practiced as a competitive sport. It’s also a form of exercise that can improve strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance.

In Taekwondo, practitioners wear a uniform called a dobok and they’re ranked based on their skill level, which is indicated by colored belts. The ranking system typically progresses from white belt for beginners to black belt for advanced students.

Taekwondo has become a popular martial art around the world, and it’s practiced by people of all ages and skill levels.
