Sport presentation

ITF Taekwon-do is a traditional Korean martial art created for self-defence, the roots of which are steeped in over 5,000 years of history. Taekwon-do is a weaponless means of combat created by General Choi Hong Hi in the 1950s, and its name roughly translates as “the way of the hand and foot”. ITF Taekwon-do is composed of over 3,000 different techniques. It is known for its distinctive sine-wave motion that allows practitioners to generate incredible power, as well as for its rapid kicks and impressive jumping attacks. It is a sport characterized by the harmonious use of both hands and feet. Practitioners are called taekwondokas and their training halls are known as dojangs. In competition, practitioners of ITF Taekwon-do compete in a number of disciplines, including patterns (Tul), sparring (Matsogi ), power breaking (Wi ryok), self-defence techniques (Hosin sul ), and special techniques (Tuk gi). The Jeux de Montréal offer 6 to 14 year olds the opportunity to experience a first ITF Taekwon-do competition in the disciplines of patterns and sparring.
