The Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles is hosting a performance by the Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team on Monday, Oct. 17, at noon at Dickson Court North on the UCLA campus.
The event will commemorate the 140-year friendship between Korea and the United States, with support from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, KOFICE and the UCLA Center for Korean Studies. Taekwondo is represented on the national flag of Korea and is at the forefront of cultural exchanges by people around the world.
Currently practiced by more than 150 million people worldwide, Taekwondo is a scientific and systematic Korean traditional martial art designed to strengthen and cultivate the body and the mind to build etiquette, temperament and patience. It became an official medal sport at the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney, Australia.
As a representative brand and leading cultural component of Korea, Taekwondo serves as a vehicle for public diplomacy and exploration of Korean culture. In 2021, California became the first state to designate Taekwondo Day annually on Sept. 4. The date is now recognized as International Taekwondo Day.
The Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team, which made it to the finals on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” will perform for students, staff and the public. Dickson Court North is located near Dickson Court and Charles E. Young Drive East on the UCLA campus.
