About Taekwondo

History of Taekwondo

     Approximately 1300 years ago (during the 6th Century A.D.), the Korean peninsula was divided into three kingdoms: Silla, Koguryo, and Baek Je. Silla, being the smallest of these kingdoms, was constantly under invasion and harassment by its two more powerful northern and western neighbors. During the reign of Chin Heung, twenty-fourth King of the Silla, the young aristocrats and warrior class formed an elite officer corps called Hwa Rang-Do. This warrior corps - in addition to the ordinary training in spear, bow, sword and hook - also trained themselves by practicing mental and physical discipline, and various forms of hand and foot fighting. To prepare their bodies for the task of defending their homeland, they climbed rugged mountains and swam turbulent rivers in the coldest of months. The Hwa Rang-Do became known in the peninsula for their courage and skill in battle, gaining respect from even their most bitter foes. Many of these brave young warriors died on the battle field - as young as fourteen years old. However, their accomplishments inspired the people of the Silla to rise and unite. From the victories of the Silla, the Korean peninsula became unified for the first time in its history.
