Taekwondo is a Korean martial art which originated from the oldest an amalgamation of unarmed combat styles developed by the three rival Korean kingdoms of Goguryeo , Silla and Baekje , where young men were trained in unarmed combat techniques to develop strength , speed , and survival skills . The most popular of these techniques was subak , with taekkyeon the most popular of the segments of subak . Those who show a strong innate talent selected as trainees in the new special warrior corps , called the Hwarang . It was believed that young men with a talent for the liberal arts may have the talent to become competent warriors . These warriors were instructed in academics as well as martial arts , learning philosophy , history , ethics , and equestrian sports . Their military training included war program involving swordsmanship and archery , both on horseback and on foot , as well as lessons in military tactics and combat using subak armed soldiers . Although subak was a leg -oriented art in Goguryeo using , Silla's influence added hand techniques to the practice of subak .

During this time some selected taekkyeon Silla warriors were given training by the early masters from Koguryo . These warriors then became known as the Hwarang . Hwarang set up a military academy for children in Silla called Hwarang -do , which means "the way of maturity . " Hwarang studied taekkyeon , history , Confucian philosophy , ethics , Buddhist morality , social skills and military tactics . The principles of the Hwarang warriors were based on Won Gwang the five codes of human conduct and included loyalty , filial duty , trustworthiness , valor and justice . Taekkyeon spread throughout Korea because the Hwarang trip around the peninsula to learn about the other regions and people .

Apart from the rich history of the Korean martial art of ancient and traditional , Korean martial arts faded into obscurity during the Joseon Dynasty . Korean society became highly centralized under Korean Confucianism and martial arts were poorly regarded in a society that aspired to and was epitomized by its scholar - kings . Formal practices of traditional martial arts such as subak and taekkyeon provided to military sanctions . Taekkyeon civilian training lasted until the 19th century .

During the Japanese occupation of Korea (1910-1945) , all facets of ethnic Korean identity banned or suppressed . Traditional Korean martial arts such as subak taekkyeon or prohibited during this time . During the occupation , Koreans were able to study and receive rankings in Japan exposed to Japanese martial arts . Others were exposed to martial arts in China and Manchuria .

The name " taekwondo " was delivered by either Choi Hong Hi ( of the Oh Do Kwan ) or Song Duk Son ( of the Chung Do Kwan ) , and was accepted on April 11, 1955. As it stands today , the nine kwans is the founder of taekwondo , though not all kwans use the name . Korea Taekwondo Association ( KTA ) was formed in 1959/1961 to facilitate the unification .

In the early 1960s , Taekwondo made ​​its debut worldwide with assignment of the original master of taekwondo to various countries .
