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.
