Recently, three girls from Kashmir won millions of heart by giving a thunder shot performance in Macau open Taekwondo championship in china.

What is Taekwondo?
A game which has now become a necessity for self-defence was originated in Korea. This game has a strong history and it’s one of the oldest form of Martial art. This game got its name by the way it is practiced. Tae is foot, Kwon means hand and Do means art which literally means the way of foot and fist.
Taekwondo started in Kashmir at a very low level and it took a lot of efforts to make the people aware about the benefits from this sport. But once it made its reach to people they started taking interest in it and girls were pushed forward to learn Taekwondo. Many Taekwondo training classes started in Kashmir to empower girls. This showed really good impact and brought laurels to the valley. We feel really proud in saying that this valley indeed is filled with many talented people which is taking our country to another level.
