Taekwondo is recognized as one of the oldest martial art of self-defense in the world. It is recognized in the Kogooryo dynasty founded in 37 B.C. in the northern region of the Korean peninsula. The 2000-year-old martial art developed in Korea is distinctly separated from Kung Fu (the Chinese art of self-defense) and from the Japanese Karate.
In 1978, Taekwondo Canada (previously WTF Taekwondo Association of Canada) officially became a member of the World Taekwondo. Currently, there are 208 member countries in the World Taekwondo.
In November 1996, Sport Canada recognized the Taekwondo Canada as the national taekwondo sports organization in Canada. Taekwondo Canada is the only official organization governing Taekwondo in Canada, recognized by both the IOC and Sport Canada.
Taekwondo was accepted as a demonstration sport at the 1988 Seoul Olympics and at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. On September 3, 1994, upon recommendation from the Planning Commission, the IOC adopted Taekwondo as an official Olympic sport for the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia.
Canada’s Taekwondo athletes have continued to achieve on the world stage in recent years by consistently medaling at international events.
