Kick up your heels in Little Rock for the American Taekwondo Association World Championship competition. So yes, literally get to kickin'. 

What is Taekwondo you ask? Well, it is a form of Korean martial art and a combat sport. It is mainly a combination of strong yet graceful kicking techniques. It is not to be confused with Karate, which is a Japanese martial art focused primarily on punching and kicking strikes.

The American Taekwondo Association is having their World Championship competition July 9 - 15. Every year this competition is held in Little Rock and hosts thousands of Taekwondo competitors from around the world.

If you're looking for a fun event to attend in the Little Rock area with friends or family then don't miss out on all the Taekwondo action!

Oh, and if you're still getting your Taekwondo confused with your Karate, I've gone ahead and added a video of last years ATA World Championship Competition.
