THE ART OF TAE KWON DO

Tae Kwon Do is the name of the martial art that

was created in Korea and developed over

the course of many decades. However, Due to the suppression of Korean culture during the Korean

War. Tae Kwon Do was not introduced to the

United States and world athletic community until

the late 1950's. By this time, the word "Karate" had

become the generic term for the martial arts.

Although Tae Kwon Do is now practiced by more

people than all of the other martial arts combined,

it is still referred to as "Korean Karate".

Tae won Do has endured its reputation for

centuries and is currently experiencing rapid growth

because of its multitude of benefits that can be

enjoyed by all people regardless of age, sex, and 

culture. Today, Tae Kwon Do is being taught and

practiced in over 170 countries.
