Taekwondo is a Korean martial art which stands out for its several and spectacular kicking techniques. Aside from being a martial art of great tradition, it also has a competitive sport side that helped it to adapt to modern times, to the extent that nowadays it is one of the most known and practised martial arts in the world.
One of the most important exercises is doing poomsae (katas in terminology of karate). Poomsae are movement sequences of defence and attack that simulate a combat against diverse opponents, and they are directly to the different degrees of belts. They are memorized and repeated with the purpose of improving speed, balance, flexibility and the control of the different movements.
Taekwondo was introduced as an exhibition sport in the Mediterranean Games celebrated in 2013 in Mersin (Turkey).
