taekwondo sport

This sport appeared in Korea and was known for more than 2,000 years. It was created and developed by the Prime Time Zone as a means of self-defense due to the large number of civil wars and the difficulty of life among ferocious animals.

This forced the Korean man to think of a way to defend himself against the invaders and against the animals, from which they began to learn the methods of defense and rapid onslaught.

And it was able to become an official Olympic sport in the 2000 Olympic Games that took place in the Australian city of Sydney, after it was an exhibition sport in the previous Olympics, which were hosted by the Korean city of Seoul, Barcelona, ​​​​Spain, and Atlanta, America.

It is worth noting, that the Olympic Games in the Japanese capital, Tokyo 2021, opened after being postponed from the summer of last year due to the Corona virus epidemic, which will continue until the eighth of next August.
