Intro:I know that some of you don’t do Taekwondo. I know that some of you do not even know what it is. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art which dates back to Silla Dynasty in Korea. Taekwondo,when translated in  English, means “The way of the foot and the fist.”

There are a lot of reasons why Taekwondo is important. Firstly, it teaches discipline.Next,it can make your body and mind stronger and healthier. Further, you get to be with famous celebrities.  Here are some of my pictures  with famous Taekwondo people:

Another importance of Taekwondo is that you get to make new friends, learn techniques from them. But the most important of all, is that you get to be with your family.
