Olympic Taekwondo Watch It Live! August 19-20th, 2008

Various Korean forms of martial arts have existed but in the early 20th century, Taekwondo became a combination of those forms. In 1955 a group of Korean martial arts leaders chose Taekwondo as the definitive Korean martial art in an attempt to promote its development worldwide.

In 1973, the Korean government recognized the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) as the legitimate governing body of sport Taekwondo, and the first World Championships were held in that year. Taekwondo became a demonstration sport in the 1992 Olympics and a Medal sport in 2000.
