People are always looking for a new way to stay physically fit while experiencing new and meaningful things. The learning of martial arts provides a perfect opportunity to do both. In particular, taekwondo offers the opportunity for individuals to learn about a martial arts discipline that combines the combat and self-defense ideology with sport and exercise.
What is Taekwondo?
Taekwondo is a martial art discipline developed in South Korea in the 1950s for the purpose of teaching self-defense to the South Korean military.
