Taekwondo
Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. Taekwondo is loosely translated as "the way of the foot and fist" but some translate it as, "the art of kicking and punching," Taekwondo's popularity is a result of evolution of martial arts.

It combines combat techniques, self-defence, sport, exercise, meditation and philosophy.

Modern Taekwondo tends to emphasize control and self-defence. The art in general emphasizes kicks thrown from a mobile stance, employing the leg's greater reach and power (compared to the arm).

Taekwondo training generally includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches, and open-handed strikes and may also include various take-downs or sweeps, throws, and joint locks.

Taekwondo was incorporated into the Asian Games in 1986.
