Tae Kwon Do is a version of an ancient form of unarmed combat practiced for many centuries in Korea. It was perfected by General Choi Hong Hi (1918-2002) who, for many years, was head of the Republic of Korean Armed Forces unarmed combat division. It has been developed & modernised since its introduction to the rest of the world on 11th April 1955.
Translated from Korean Tae means "to jump, kick or smash with the foot." Kwon means "to punch, strike or smash with the fist." Do means "art, method or way."
