Taekwondo was only developed fairly recently in Korea (1945). In Seoul, a group of Korean martial arts fanatics established some new schools which they named "kwans", practicing a combination of martial arts techniques. This eventually became known as Taekwondo and the main emphasis of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially fast kicking methods, head kicks and jumping/spinning kicks.Today Crewe Taekwondo classes follow this tradition.
Since the Sydney Olympic Games in the year 2000, Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport. This has made it even more popular worlwide with some 60 million people actively taking part in classes. And it is by joining a Taekwondo club or class that you can begin your journey of learning this fascinating art.
