With its beginnings in 1940's Korea, South-East Asia, Taekwondo is certainly one of the more recently introduced of the martial arts and involves primarily kicking moves such as rapid kicking styles, jumping/turning kicks and head-height kicks.

With more than 60 million individuals engaged in Taekwondo sessions all around the globe, this has unquestionably become a popular activity, and if you really master the sport you might possibly one day be eligible for the Olympic Games, of which it's been a part since the Sydney Games in the year 2000.
