History
Taekkyeon is a traditional military Korean martial art first explicitly recorded in the Joseon Dynasty. It is an ancestor art of the more modern Korean martial art Taekwondo and its various sub-styles. Taekkyeon is characterized by fluid, dynamic footwork and utilizes a wide variety of kicks, fist and elbow strikes, pressure point attacks, throws, and grapples. It is also frequently romanized informally as Taekgyeon, Taekkyon, or Taekyun.
The earliest existing written source mentioning Taekkyeon is from the time of King Jeongjo, who reigned in Korea from 1776 to 1800. During this time, the book Jaemulbo (also Manmulbo) was written by Lee, Sung-Ji.

Style
Taekkyeon contains many kinds of techniques, including hand and leg techniques as well as joint locks, throws and head butts. The whole body is used in each movement. Taekkyeon teaches a great variety of kicks, especially low kicks, knees, jumps. The basic steps are geometric and at the core of all advanced movement. All movements are natural to the human body.
The movements of Taekkyon are fluid with the practitioners constantly moving. One of its most striking characteristics is the motion called gumsil or ogeum jil: It is a constant bending and stretching of one's knees, giving the art a dance-like appearance.
