“Charyut!” The Sabum or esteemed coach of the Tae Kwon Do class uses this Korean command meaning “attention” often. Korean martial artists developed Tae Kwon Do in the 1940s drawing on their experience with other martial arts such as karate and indeginous Korean martial arts traditions such as Taekkyon, Subak and Gwonbeop. It is primarily a kicking art and places emphasis on spinning and jumping kicks, side and roundhouse kicks and head-height kicks. Currently, Tae Kwon Do is the most popular martial art and is even an event in the Olympics.
