Taekwondo is a Korean martial art meaning 'the art of hand and foot' and is a combination of combat technique, self-defense, sport, exercise, entertainment, and philosophy. The art emphasizes kicks thrown from a mobile stance, using the leg's greater reach and power to disable the opponent from a distance, an approach that distinguishes TaeKwondo from arts such as Karate.
