On 23 September, I got an opportunity to visit Chungju Taekkyeon Training Centre. Taekkyeon is a traditional Korean martial art that makes use of fluid, rhythmic dance-like movements to strike or trip up an opponent. The graceful movements of a well-trained Taekkyeon performer are gentle and circular rather than straight and rigid, but can explode with enormous flexibility and strength. The feet play as important a role as the hands. In spite of its gentle impression, Taekkyeon is an effective martial art highlighting a broad variety of offensive and defensive skills employing all available fighting methods. Korean Taekkyeon Association plays a significant role in the transmission and promotion of this traditional martial art. I would like to thanks UNESCO Korea for giving such an excellent chance to participate in such a tour program.
