In 1945 when Korea was liberated many seperate marital arts schools formed. General Choi Hong Hi (considered the father of Tae Kwon Do) started his own teaching a combination of Taekyon and Karate (Thus explaining TKD's similiarity to Karate). Many other schools taught this style but called it various names until 1955 when Choi Hong Hi submitted the name Tae Kwon Do. Tae Kwon Do encompasses many different styles of martial arts and is the most popular Korean martial art and even their national sport.
BTW, I'm a 3rd degree black belt and a Tae Kwon Do instructor, so while my knowledge of the history may be a little off, I know enough to say that anyone who says Tae Kwon Do is worthless is obviously a retarded douche bag. Also, I'm 17 and make $6.50 and hour, so I'm clearly not teaching TKD to "leech all your money away"

The Korean art of kicking and punching - which would kick your arse.
Taekwondo (also written as "tae kwon do", "taekwon-do" or "t'aegwondo") is a modern martial art from Korea that is characterised by its fast, high and spinning kicks.
A great martial art for all ages, has alot of ideas from several other types of martial arts. It's also an official Olympic sport. It's main focus is on kicks, and there aren't many different types of punches or punch combos that you learn. And whoever said that it's the weakest martial art ever, I would like to meet you so I can prove you wrong.
People who have no idea what they are talking about should shut up.
"The way of the hand and the foot".Corean martial based on the 2000 year old matial art taekyon.One of the most effectiv martial arts known for powerful and fast kicks aswell as for spectacular jumping kick technics. there are two styles of taekwondo: the full-contact tkd,which is actually more a sport then a martial art, and the so called "classic" tkd,
the true tkd, involving allso hand, knee and ellbow technics, more appropriate for the times where yo have to beat the crap out of someone while wanting to entertain your friends and impress the girls.
