Taekwondo is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, that teaches ways of enhancing our spirit and life through training our body and mind. Today, it has become a global sport that has gained an international reputation, and stands among the official games in the Olympics. Compared to other Asian disciplines, it is very dynamic with active movements that include a myriad of foot skills the principle physical movements correlate with that of the mind and life as a whole. This characterizes it with the unity of body, mind, and life.
There are two important concepts behind Taekwondo. First, Taekwondo is the right way of using Tae and Kwon (fists and feet), or all the parts of the body that are represented by them. Second, it is a way to control or diffuse potential fights and aggression, to keep the peace in the world. This concept comes from the meaning of Tae Kwon 'to put fists under control' [or 'to step on fists']. Thus Taekwondo means "the right way of using all parts of the body to stop fights and help to build a better and more peaceful world."
