Taekwondo is a sport originating in Korea; literally, its name means “the way of kicking and punching”. As a full-contact sport, it is well known for fast and dynamic kicks and punches. It has both sparring and non-sparring disciplines. Kyorug is sparring between two individuals or two teams; poomsae, a non-sparring discipline, is a series of movements for offence and defence techniques against an imaginary opponent. The harmonisation of sparring and non-sparring makes taekwondo a lifetime pursuit and is loved by men and women of all ages.
