About Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a unique form of martial arts practiced across the globe. It originated in Korea hundreds of years ago. In Korean, “Tae” represents “foot,” “leg,” or “to step on”; “Kwon” represents “fist,” or “fight”; and “Do” represents the “way” or “discipline.” This sport became an official Olympic sport in the 2000 Sydney Games. Taekwondo made its debut as a demonstration sport at the Melbourne Deaflympics 2005 Games, but was not officially added to the Deaflympics until the 2009 Games with our first USA deaf athlete. We have proudly been growing our team of deaf and hard of hearing athletes. All athletes are officially certified and qualified by the World Taekwondo Federation to compete at the international level.
