Tae Kwon Do is a Korean martial art that was developed over 20 centuries ago. The name, however, which literally
means "the way of the hand and foot," dates back to the 1950s, when a group of Korean martial artists unified
their individual art. Tae Kwon Do, which combines a wide range of kicking, punching, blocking, and stepping
techniques, has developed into an effective system for self-defense, and is an excellent
means to improve physical fitness and flexibility, and to develop mental and spiritual strength.
