Taekkyeon is a traditional martial art mainly using the hands and feet and concentrating on adopting a defensive disposition through various foot techniques, including jumping and kicking or the so called “Balnoli” (meaning “foot play”in Korean). One of the distinctive characteristics of Taekkyeon is the lyrical, dance-like movement, and it is regarded as one of the most highly artistic forms of martial art in the world. Taekwondo focuses on spiritual and physical strength based on combining various skills including meditation, philosophy, combat techniques, self-defense and exercise.
