Then, it developed into present-day Taekwon-Do on the basis of its superior techniques and under the support of scientific research on it conducted to suit the characters of the Koreans and their constitutional peculiarity.

Taekwon-Do means the high physical technique and the strong mental culture. It consists of main movements, patterns, sparring match, self-defense art and training.

The main movements with individual movements of attack and defense are over thousands in the number of kinds.

Patterns are of tactical significance as the sets of main movements. They are 24 in all--some having simple 6-7 main movements and some 100-odd main movements.
