In Korean, tae means “to strike or smash with the foot”; kwon means “to strike or smash with the hand”; and do means “way” or “path”. Hence, taekwondo is loosely translated as “the way of the foot and the fist”. Taekwondo is a combination of combat technique, self-defense, sport, exercise, entertainment, and philosophy. In addition to the general good conditioning and flexibility training, the major “disciplines” are self-defense, sparring, forms and breaking.
