What Is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo is a modern martial art, founded as recently as 1955, by the late Korean General, Choi Hong-Hi. Taekwondo is fundamentally different to almost all other martial arts. It is often typified by it’s spectacular and dynamic flying techniques, however, it is actually based entirely upon demonstrable scientific principles. This makes it very easy for young and old alike to understand, learn, and perform.
