Taekwondo is a sport in which no man, woman, age, or age has any weapons, and anywhere, anytime, anywhere, by honing the skills of defense and attack and walking down a human path through physical and mental training.

As a physical exercise
It has a great effect on the development of children's growth, improvement of health for young adults and women's health and beauty. Taekwondo's technical system and form of exercise are designed to use each part of the bo dy in a balanced manner, so that the flexibility of human joints develops evenly, and can greatly help relieve stress and mental disabilities that increase with the development of civilization

As an educational means
It all boils down to the fact that it guides people to practice their will to self perform, improve their ability to adapt to human life beyond self centered life, which is easy to fall into through frequent and repeated training of etiquette. These virtues in human life are what Taekwondo pursues as education, and that is the most important aspect of Taekwondo.
