What is Taekwondo?
TaekwondoTaekwondo is a modern martial art, characterized by its fast, high and spinning kicks. There are multiple interpretations of the name Taekwondo. Taekwondo is often translated as 'the way of hand and foot.'
Tae = 'Foot' or 'to kick' or 'to jump'
K'won = 'Fist' or 'to strike or block with hand'

Put this together and Taekwondo means: "The art of kicking and punching" or "The art of unarmed combat."
