Taekwondo is a traditional martial arts form which teaches more than physical fighting skills. It is a discipline that enhances one's spirit through training one's body and minds. It combines combat and self-defense techniques with sport and exercise. It is recognized as one of the oldest forms of martial arts in the world, reaching back over 2,000 years and originated in Korea.
The Kukkiwon team has been a pioneer in globalizing taekwondo as a leading martial art since the organization, which is also known as the World Taekwondo Headquarters, was founded in 1972. It organized the Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team in 1974: the group has toured over a dozen countries each year since then.
Composed of South Korea’s top 70 taekwondo practitioners, the team takes pride in spreading Taekwondo and Korean culture as civilian diplomats. A delegation of 20 persons is coming to Doha for this event.
The event is open and free for all to attend.
