Talk about being footloose and fancy free! Taekwondo is a Korean Martial Art that, at least from the surface level, has many aspects to it that run counter to Boxing; whereas the discipline of Boxing places a big emphasis on refined handwork and punching techniques, Taekwondo is all about kicking, running, sprinting, jumping, and gaining an overall mastery of one's lower body. As it happens, many Taekwondo drills can potentially serve as excellent ways to help your dog improve the strength of their legs as well as their own cardio and endurance.

While Taekwondo may not be as well known in places like North America or the United Kingdom, the popularity of Taekwondo has been on the rise since it was first founded in the mid 1940's. Taekwondo combat techniques have been featured in popular games like Bandai Namco's Tekken series as well as influential films like John Wick and even a number of movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However we hope that the philosophy and discipline behind Taekwondo will become just as popular, if not more so, than the combative elements of the Martial Art; in other words, we hope that people (and their dogs) will come to appreciate the "artful" aspects of this Martial Art more over time.
