Tae-Kwon-Do as a Sport

It is fortunate that Tae Kwon Do is partially a sport and partially an art.  Both of these components are contained within the training. Tae Kwon Do competition became an official Olympic game in the 2000 Sydney games and continues to this day. Under the World Tae Kwon Do Federation, the Olympic games continue to attract many new students to the sport of Tae Kwon Do. The competitive awareness training, inherent in the sport of Tae Kwon Do, has increased the sport’s popularity since it is a vital attribute of all athletes and athletic programs.  Unlike many sports, Tae Kwon Do demands high reaction time and strengthens the student’s reflexive responses. Tae Kwon Do students gain the ability to recognize positive and negative emotional triggers that may effect their opponent’s performance. He/She will learn to control their own situational responses better whether in training or in Local, Intra/Inter State, National or even at International competitive levels.
