Taekwondo is the national sport of Korea and one of the worlds most commonly practiced martial arts. While it translates as “the way of the foot and the fist,” it is known primarily for its kicks. The reason that kicks are emphasized is because the leg is believed to be the longest and strongest weapon that a person has. There are also hand techniques, and some grappling at higher levels.
