Jasmine Leilani Goodwin
Taekwondo is an empty-handed/unarmed combat form/technique for self-
defense that entails the use of the whole body. It involves the skillful application
of techniques that include: punching, jumping, kicks, blocks, dodges, parrying
actions with hands and feet.
Taekwondo is more than a mere physical fighting skill. It represents a way of
thinking and a pattern of life requiring strict discipline. It is a system of training
both the mind and the body in which great emphasis is placed on the development
of the trainee's moral character.
