Taekwondo

Respect for your skills and the control of your power

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that has been practiced in Asian civilization for centuries, this is based on ancient martial arts like Kung Fu (open hand techniques), Taekkyon (kicks) and Karate (punches, system degrees and uniform). Its name can be divided into three words "Tae" (foot, kick), "Kwon" (hand, punch) and "Do" (Mind, road, art), which could translate as "the art of fighting with feet and hands".

Contrary to what most people think, the traditional taekwondo also has a variety of striking techniques such as beatings with fists, elbows, knee hits, joint sprains, etc. But the specialty of this lies in the kicks. Like any martial art is a method of generating power by using the mind and body requiring great skill and control to use the techniques of attack and defense, making it one of the most competitive and exciting sports.

In competitions the challenge is to use the techniques without contact with the opponent's body, which means to have absolute control over the movement to keep a few inches away from the opponent.

Currently more than a martial art highlight of the appearance of competition, as well as the variety and magnificence of his kicks, its beauty and effectiveness. Because it is structured and consolidated in more than 195 countries had been included in the Olympic Games since Seoul in 1988. It is considered an effective method for self-defense without weapon and a great way to keep physically fit regardless of the age that performs it.


When Japan invaded Korea (about 1909), this forbade the practice of martial arts that were given there, the Sirum and Tae Kyon, and imposed their arts between schools as sports forms. This could not prevent Choi, who later became president of the Korea Taekwondo Association, knew Tae Kyon in 1930, like him, other forbidden arts students later would be based on these to create their own styles.

In 1943, Japan lifted the ban and this increases the popularity of Kung Fu, Judo and Karate among Koreans, which causes them to develop extensively the knowledge of Shotokan Karate. On regaining independence in Korea Japanese arts were well known while the Koreans were on the brink of oblivion, the Korean teachers set a goal of recovering the ancient fighting techniques with the peculiarity of the importance of the kicks.

Tae Kyon returned from the shadows at the hands of Kim Hong Sik and Song Ki Dok, there arose from other variants schools of this art influenced by the techniques of linear karate circulars kung fu, marking an evolution in the Korean martial arts. In 1946 was created the Taekyon (Chang Moo Kwan), founded by Byung In Yoon and known to people as Korean Karate. Over time it expanded its acceptance and popularity reached the ranks of Korean troops, where it began teaching as a defense. With the war between the two Koreas, President Syngman Rhee decided that this be taught to all military forces. Most styles that existed then teamed up to create a unique name that would identify everyone in the West to leave behind the "Korean karate", the name that was chosen was Tae Soo Do (The art of Chinese Hand ) but this was changed in 1957 to Taekwon-Do for its resemblance to the old Tae kyon.

In 1961 was founded the Korea Taekwondo Association (KTA) with Hong Hi Choi as president, who supported by the Korean government began the fast global expansion of Taekwondo.

Appeared in the Seoul Olympic Games in 1988, although it became an official Olympic sport in Sydney 2000, so in celebration of this fact, was established on September 4 International Day of Taekwondo.

In Mexico, Taekwondo became available in the 70's, same years that was created the Mexican Federation of Taekwondo in order to represent Mexico in international events.
