    • Taekkyon is a martial art which is known for kicking & tripping the opponent over. Its fast high and low kicks are different to other martial arts.

      As well as kicking, & tripping, a Taekgyeon  practitioner aims to throw or wrestle the opponent. There are also techniques used to block and trap the arms and legs of an opponent.

      Most of all, Taekkyon is specialised in high kicks, low kicks, foot sweeps, leg hooking, tripping, multiple kicks, and throwing. That is why Taekkyon was called "The one hundred amazing flying leg techniques - 百技神通飛脚術" by the Chinese over a century ago.
