Tae Kwon Do was started 2000 years ago
in Korea. Historians believed that Tae Kwon Do is the martial arts with the
longest history. Silla, Baekjae and Kokooryo were the three Kingdoms which
started Tae kwon Do.
Kokooryo was an important kingdom because Tae kwon
Do started in 53 - 165 AD in Kokooryo. People living in Kokooryo liked to train
for Tae Kwon Do. Koreans found a picture of the people training for Tae Kwon Do
during that period of time.
Silla played quite an important role in the
history of Tae Kwon Do because they made up the five sentences:
BE LOYAL TO
HONOR YOUR PARENTS.
BE FAITHFUL TO YOUR FRIENDS.
NEVER RETREAT IN BATTLE.
JUDGMENT BEFORE KILLING LIVING THINGS.
Baekjae did not play a major role
in the history of Tae Kwon Do. However, Baekjae used the techniques of Tae Kwon
Do to protect their people and choose their leader.
