Its literal translation meaning “the foot-fist-way”, Taekwondo emerged around the mid-twentieth century as a combination of traditional Korean martial arts such as Taekkeyon, the Japanese art of Karate, and some styles of Kung Fu/Wushu. As is evident in demonstrations, exhibitions, competitions, and martial arts films, this style (at least in its modern form) places great emphasis on its wide array of kicking techniques. The speed of one’s kicks is also central to Taekwondo theory as one principle states that velocity adds greater force to one’s strike than does the same proportional increase in the mass of the strike. Originally Taekwondo was called “Tae Soo Do” after the unification of various “kwans” (or martial arts schools) that were established following the Japanese Imperialist occupation of Korea. It was not until South Korean general Choi Hong Hi (the debatable founder of Taekwondo) encouraged the term “Tae Kwon Do” instead that the name finally gained wider usage. Eventually this lead to the establishment of the Korea Taekwondo Association, International Taekwondo Federation, World Taekwondo Federation, and other organizations each considered to teach their own style of Taekwondo. Of all these, the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) style, or “Kukkiwon” style (lots of kicking), is the most popular and is associated with the actual competitive sport especially as part of the Olympic games. As a result, it is also the most common style seen in films where the characters specializing in it (like those played by Collin Chou, Ken Lo, Tim Man, Casanova Wong, and Hwang Jang Lee) are shown executing a fantastic display of acrobatic and agile kicks. I’m no expert on Taekwondo but a fan of awesome fight choreography so I decided to delve a bit deeper and research some of the films that feature it. So here’s a compilation of some Taekwondo fight scenes.
