Great Big Story (YouTube Channel, global media company devoted to cinematic storytelling):

Taekkyeon is a fluid, full-body Korean martial art focused on kicks, leg sweeps and acrobatic lower body movements. The practice, which dates back 2,000 years, is rhythmic in nature and—to those who master its spellbinding techniques—can feel like dancing.

Jeong Gyeong-hwa (Taekkyeon instructor and research director of the Taekkyeon Center in Chungju City): 

When you first learn Taekkyeon, it’s like learning a dance.  You sway gently, and writhe your body and all in all, it gives the feeling of dancing.

Jeong Gyeong-hwa (Taekkyeon instructor and research director of the Taekkyeon Center in Chungju City): 

My name is Jeong Gyeong-hwa.  I am serving as the second living cultural asset, and a research director of the Taekkyeon Center in Chungju City.  I am responsible for the education of Taekkyeon to disciples, and in charge of Taekkyeon-related matters.  Taekkyeon is a traditional martial art with a long history that has been passed down from the Three Kingdoms period to the Goguryeo period, which was 2,000 years ago.

Jeong Gyeong-hwa (Taekkyeon instructor and research director of the Taekkyeon Center in Chungju City): 

Taekkyeon’s training process can be separated into three stages:  self-learning, face-to-face scoring matches, and weighing one’s ability with others.  One needs to train for the basic fundamental skills, go face-to-face with those learned skill sets, and try attacking, blocking, and training that you can use in a real match.  Then after a certain amount of training, one can naturally apply and practice a foot attack, foot kicking techniques, and foot distance techniques.

Jeong Gyeong-hwa (Taekkyeon instructor and research director of the Taekkyeon Center in Chungju City): 

While training in martial arts, the mind becomes calm and one learns about self-abstinence, and one gets stronger through this process.  This is not just about learning Taekkyeon, but also the ultimate goal of all martial arts, which is to elevate the quality of life.
