      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 whom attempts to puch or kick.

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

      Taekkyon is a traditional Korean martial art, which in 2011 was recognised by Unesco, of the United Nations, as an intangible cultural assest worth protecting.
