Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. It combines combat and self-defense techniques with sport and exercise. Gyeorugi, a type of sparring, has been an Olympic event since 2000. Taekwondo was developed by a variety of Korean masters during the 1940s as partial combination of taekkyeon, Okinawan karate, and other traditions.
Muay Thai is recognized globally as the most effective striking art today. Thailandâ€™s national sport, Muay Thai, is based on simplicity and effectiveness.
Honed over 2000 years, it is a graceful blend of punches, elbows, knees, and kicks.
The core of Muay Thai is its effectiveness in real situations, be it in the ring or on the street. It relies on simple moves and efficient movement to generate maximum power.
Mixed Martial Arts
MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world. MMA is a combination of the best fighting systems. In 1993, the Ultimate Fighting Championship forever changed martial arts by creating a tournament to pit the worldâ€™s best martial artists against each other. The tournament was designed to answer the age-old question, â€œWhich martial art is the most effective in a real life, no-rules situation?â€ After 15 years of MMA events around the globe by the UFC and other organizations, MMA mania has now taken over the sports world. More importantly, it is now widely accepted that a combination of Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, and Wrestling is a strong foundation for fighting in a no-holds-barred situation. A complete fighter is someone who can fight in the 4 primary ranges of combat: kicking, punching, clinching/kneeing/takedowns, and ground fighting.
