VIDEO | Taekwondo demonstrations will blow you away

Taekwondo is one of the most flashy disciplines of martial arts that you will see.

In many Taekwondo demonstrations, you will see some high flying, insanely quick spinning moves that will leave you wondering how it is all physically possible.

For a little background on the name of the Korean martial art discipline, we get some insight from Team USA and the World Taekwondo Federation.

Let’s take a closer look at the meaning of the word “Tae” “Kwon” “Do.” It is composed of three parts as shown in the English spelling, though it is one word in Korean. “Tae” means “foot,” “leg,” or “to step on”; “Kwon” means “fist,” or “fight”; and “Do” means the “way” or “discipline.” If we put these three parts together, we can see two important concepts behind “Tae Kwon Do”.

Mixed martial artists such as Anderson Silva, Anthony Pettis and even UFC commentator Joe Rogan are known for their background in the Korean martial art. Check out the amazing display of Taekwondo in the video above!
