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.
