To commemorate the 140th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Korea, the Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team, who received the Golden Buzzer and made it to the finals on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” will be proudly performing for students, faculties, and the general public at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).  

Currently practiced by more than 150 million people worldwide, Taekwondo is a scientific and systematic Korean traditional martial art designed to strengthen and cultivate both the body and the mind to build etiquette, temperament, and patience. It became an official Olympic medal sport at the 2000 Sydney games. As a representative brand and leading cultural content of Korea, Taekwondo serves as a spearhead for public diplomacy as it receives enormous attention and love from people that helps to spread not only Taekwondo, but Korean culture as well. In particular, the State of California was the first to designate ‘Taekwondo Day’ annually on September 4 in 2021 which has now become ‘International Taekwondo Day.’  Please come and enjoy this very special performance by the Kukkiwon Taekwondo Demonstration Team at 12:00 PM, Monday, October 17 at Dickson Court North. No registration required.
