What is Tae Kwon Do
Integrating elements of Karate and Chinese Martial Arts, Taekwondo is the most well-known form of Korean martial art. It emphasizes self-defense and head-height kicks, jumping kicks, spinning and fast kicking techniques.
Taekwondo puts emphasis on speed and agility. Early founders discovered that the theory of power was not based on the mass of the striking object, but the speed of the strike. In other words, speed is more important than size to generate power. Other fundamental concepts include concentration and breath control. It is important to bring as many muscles as possible to bear on a strike and concentrating it on to a small area possible such as the striker’s hand or foot. Also for a striker to hit more efficiently, taekwondo teaches to strike while exhaling to enhance the impact. These central ideas were put into the early designs of taekwondo and is still used till this day.
