Taekwondo One of the best defensive sport for kids

In 1952, there was a martial art demonstration, in which martial art participants showed their skills and movements. On one occasion, Nam Tai Hi broke 13 tiles with a single punch. The then President of South Korea initiated the reintroduction of martial art skills in the army. The name -Taekwondo- was submitted and accepted in April 1955. There were nine Kwan (taekwondo practitioners) at that time and all these agreed to the same code of conduct and KTA (Korea Taekwondo Association) was established in 1960. After that, masters of taekwondo were sent to different part of the world to teach people all the techniques and rules of Taekwondo. These efforts to grow the sport have led to the widespread popularity of martial arts throughout the world. The ITF (International Taekwondo Federation) was established in 1966 and the WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) was established in 1973. Taekwondo was a demonstration sport in the 1988 Olympics and then became a full Olympic sport with medals during the Sydney 2000 Olympics. The Common Wealth Games also added taekwondo in 2010. Taekwondo is not only a sport. It is a lifestyle, that improves fitness, tolerance and overall mental health. Quick movements with the hands and feet are practiced repetitively to build muscle memory and to enable the fighters to react in the quickest manner possible. The fitness level obtained with training for this sport is comparable to the most demanding Olympics sports. Taekwondo also provides an excellent level of confidence for the practitioner. The mental focus required to complete at an international level is as important as the athletes physical ability. Originally confined mostly to Asia, martial arts are practiced in almost every nook and corner of the world. The Olympics has helped Taekwondo to become mainstream and one of the most popular and fastest growing martial art. taekwondo videos olympic taekwondo
