The Art of Taekwondo
Taekwondo can be traced back 2000 years to ancient forms of martial arts, which were practiced throughout Korea. In its modern form, however, Taekwondo has existed since the 1940’s after Karate and other forms of Korean martial arts, such as Taekkyeon and Subak, were combined to create the unified code of Taekwondo. Taekwondo is currently practiced by over 50 million people and is one of the most widely practiced martial arts in the world today.
