International Taekwondo Day

Every year on September 4th, International Taekwondo Day is celebrated. The selection of this date in 2006 holds significance, as on September 4, 1994, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) formally recognized taekwondo as an Olympic discipline. Since then, taekwondo has been a consistent presence in every Olympic Games. Originating as a Korean martial art, participants don the traditional uniform known as a dobok.
