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

      Even though Taekkyon is known for its kicking prowess, it is tripping & locking techniques which are the major part of Taekkyon. These tripping & locking techniques are applied to the opponent’s feet & legs, & are what differs this martial art to others.


      As well as kicking, & tripping, a Taekkyon  practitioner aims to:

      * grapple/ wrestle

      * use hand fighting

      * throw


      Taekkyon is a soft martial art, & employs circular movements, thus it can appear dance like. (Outside is soft, inside is hard 《外柔内刚》)。 However from within softness, power & speed can easily emerge.

      Taekkyon was considered unique more than one century ago and was described 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.
