Taekwondo is a Korean unarmed martial art. In Korean, Tae means "to strike or break with foot", Kwon means "to strike or break with fist", and Do means, "way", "method", or "art". Thus Taekwondo may be loosely translated as "the way of kicking and punching." The main goal of the Taekwondo practitioner is to achieve total mind and body control through training.
Taekwondo training includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches, and strikes as well as various take-downs and sweeps. Traditional Taekwondo combines combat techniques, self-defense, sport, exercise, meditation, and philosophy. Taekwondo has been an Olympic event since 2000.

*A minimum age of 8 years old is recommended to start training in Taekwondo.
