HISTORY OF TAE KWON DO:  

The name Tae Kwon Do is derived from the Korean word "Tae" meaning foot, "Kwon" meaning first and "Do" mending the way of. So, literally, Tae Kwon Do means "the way of the foot and fist." 

The name Taekwondo, however, has only been used since 1955 while the arts' roots began 2,300 years ago in Korea. Known as a martial art and way of life, the evolution of Tae Kwon Do was a direct result of the happening in Korea long ago, and knowledge of the history is an important step in understanding Taekwondo.
