Hello everyone, it is good to see you again. It is our day two talking about taekwondo and training.? Today, I will be talking about the contemporary developmental history of taekwondo.

By the way, did you know that Taekwondo used be called differently? Yes, it was “Taesoodo” when Korea Taesoodo Association was found in 1961 and it became an amateur sport of Korea Sports Association in 1963. Finally, in 1965, the Korea Taesoodo Association renamed its organization as Korea Taekwondo Association by one vote difference. Otherwise, we could have been yelling “Taesoodo” instead.
