Kukki-won Taekwondo is one of the two most popular styles.
Kukki-won Taekwondo gives greater emphasis to kicking techniques than Changheon-yu Taekwondo, and has comparatively fewer hand strikes. This can be seen in the radically
different sparring styles. Consequently, performers of this style tend to show greater
flexibility and agility.
Kukki-won Taekwondo has obtained international success and renown through the Olympic
Games, at which it is the only permitted style, and has consequently had a significant
impact on the perception of the art among non-martial-artists.
