Brief History of Tae Kwon Do



Tae Kwon Do is the Korean art of self defence developed by General Choi Hong Hi of the Korean Army during the 1940’s and became formally recognised in 1955. Since then it has spread world-wide and is now more popular than any other martial art. Tae Kwon Do literally means ‘the Art of hand and foot fighting’. It is the martial art of unarmed combat for self defence and involves the skilled application of punches, kicks, blocks, dodges, and interceptions with the hands, arms and feet.
