As a form of martial arts, taekwondo is unique in its approach and tactics. Developed in Korea, it emphasizes the use of head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, sweeping movements, and fast-kicking techniques to catch an opponent off guard. While other forms of martial arts developed on the Asian continent were used in combat alongside weapons, taekwondo was largely developed as a competitive sport.
