Taekwondo is a Korean martial art which is characterised by its ability of kicking on a head height, jumps and various types of spin kicks and fast kicks. Taekwondo was initiated during the early 1940s and 1950s by various martial artists who combined karate and martial arts with the Korean arts as in TaekkyeonGwonberp and etc.

The oldest governing body of taekwondo is the Korean Taekwondo Association. This association was formed back in 1959. Just like other sport even taekwondo participants have to wear a uniform which is mostly white but also sometimes worn as black. It has a belt tied around the waist. While white uniforms are mandatory, coloured uniforms are for special teams.
