I 'am so glad u ask! Many years and centuries ago in a place known today as Korea, a form of weaponless defense came into practice which had no name. It was used often by the natives for survival against many wild animals back in those times.
Through the years, the practice developed into an art form not only for use as self-defense, but also as a sport, a means of regular physical exercise, and a philosophy by which one could spiritually enrich one's life.
Today, the art form is know as Tae Kwon Do, the Korean Martial Art, the perfect system of self-defense. Literally translated into a art form of kicking and punching.
Tae Know Do offers the excitement of competition, the blessing of good health through regular exercise and once mastered, remains a silent weapon with which one may defend their life if necessary, or the life of a helpless person.
Tae Kwon Do is a " Way of Life."
