Korea is famous for it's art of Taekwondo. The kicks are flashy and really damaging if you get hit by one. The sport is very big now and it's competitors wear head gear and score points. The art also involves some joint locks too. It was a military martial art years ago, and maybe still is. The practitioners display great agility, flexibility, and speed. It promotes honesty, courtesy, humility, respect, courage, generosity, loyalty and perseverance. Another great Martial Art to add to the Culture list!
