Taekwondo was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by various martial artists by incorporating elements of Chinese Martial Arts with indigenous Korean martial arts traditions such as Taekkyeon, Subak, and Gwonbeop.

The oldest governing body for taekwondo is the Korea Taekwondo Association (KTA), formed in 1959 through a collaborative effort by representatives from the nine original kwans, or martial arts schools, in Korea. The main international organizational bodies for taekwondo today are the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF), founded by Choi Hong Hi in 1966, and the partnership of the Kukkiwon and World Taekwondo Federation (WTF), founded in 1972 and 1973 respectively by the Korea Taekwondo Association

Taekwondo is characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques. In fact, World Taekwondo Federation sparring competitions award additional points for strikes that incorporate spinning kicks. To facilitate fast, turning kicks, taekwondo generally adopts stances that are narrower and hence less-stable than the broader, wide stances used by martial arts such as subak. The tradeoff of decreased stability is believed to be worth the commensurate increase in agility, particularly in Kukkiwon-style taekwondo

Taekwondo ranks vary from style to style and are not standardized. Typically, these ranks are separated into "junior" and "senior" sections, colloquially referred to as "color belts" and "black belts".

Rank is based on the traditional WTF coloured belt system which contains 8 colours from White Belt to Black Belt. This includes striped intermissions as the student progresses through the Gups (levels) from the beginning 8th Gup through to 1st Gup which is the final coloured belt stage prior to testing for a 1st Degree Black Belt. Each colour has a significance and meaning in taekwondo, which co-relates to the Marital Arts in general. These meanings will be introduced and recognized in the traditional part of the curriculum, and will be included at each appropriate level of training.
