The sport was first practiced in Korea in around 1945, though the name Taekwondo was not used until the 1950's. Some new schools called "kwans" were established in Seoul by a group of Korean martial arts fanatics, combining a number of various martial arts techniques. The emphasis of the discipline was on kicking manoeuvres, especially fast kicking strategies, head kicks and jumping/turning kicks, and it was later given the name; Taekwondo, meaning "the way of the foot and fist".Today Long Eaton Taekwondo classes follow this tradition.
Ever since the Sydney Olympic Games in the year 2000, Taekwondo has been an Olympic sport. This has made it even more popular around the world with some 60 million people routinely attending classes. And it is by signing up to a Taekwondo club or class that you can begin your quest of learning this remarkable martial art.
