Taekwondo, a martial art from Korea, combines self defence with sport and exercise. It was developed in the 1940s, combining various aspects of taekkyeon, Okinawan karate, and other traditions.

 

History
Sport taekwondo, developed in the 1950s, has two main styles. One style created in 1955 by Choi Hong Hi, and the other derived from Kukkiwon.  
 
Tae in Korean stands for "to strike with the foot"; kwon is "to strike with the fist"; and do is "way of life". So, taekwondo is roughly "the way of the foot and the hand.”  This sport is estimated to be practiced in some 123 countries and over 70 million practitioners. 

 

Olympics
Taekwondo has been included in the Olympic Games since 2000. It was a demo event at the 1988 Seoul games and an official medal event at the 2000 Sydney games.  
 
8 events are contested in this sport, with 4 weight classes each for men and women
  1.Flyweight
  2.Lightweight
