Teakwondo is a Korean martial art. It is translated from Korean as ‘tae’ - kicking ‘kwon’ - fist or hand punch, ‘do’ - this is the way. Thus, taekwondo has two components: the first is the use of hands and feet for self-defense, and the second is the way of life, which includes intensive training for the development of personal strength of mind.
