Taekwondo is a sport based on the Korean martial art. Korea has had a long history of unarmed and armed combat styles. Taekwondo was officially formed in 1955, when most Korean martial arts masters united the various fighting styles under the name Tae Soo Do, later changed to Taekwondo. Taekwondo is famed for its employment of leg and jumping techniques. The five tenets of Taekwondo (courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, indomitable spirit) show that, like any martial art, Taekwondo is a mental discipline as well as a physical one. The World Taekwondo Federation was founded in 1973. For more info see Wikipedia.
