What is Taekkyon?

Taekkyon (or also Taekyun, Taekkyeon, Taekgyeon...) is an original Korean martial art. Taekkyon has relaxed rhythmic movements with an arsenal of techniques containing kicks, throws, sweeps, attacks and blocks especially with open hands.

The first written mentions about Taekkyon are from the 17th century. In the 19th century this fighting game was very popular among villagers and in the cities, regular tournaments were held during the holiday seasons. This style of combat was never codified before the Japanese occupation of Korea. During the occupation, with Japanese efforts of annihilating Korean culture, Taekkyon was completely forbidden. It was transferred to modern times thanks to the effort of master SONG Duck-Ki (1893 – 1987), who taught Taekkyon. Thus, this Korean martial art, with a typical dancing movement, was transferred to the present day.

On June 1st, 1983, Taekkyon was appointed an important Intangible Cultural Landmark of Korea, number 76 and in November 2011, it was registered by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Taekkyon in the Czech Republic

The history of Taekkyon in the Czech Republic began from February 2013, when Martin Zámečník, master of Taekwon-do ITF, on his way to better understanding of Korean martial arts traveled on a weekly stay in Paris and every day he attended trainings of Taekkyon with master Jean-Sebastian Bressy, who Taekkyon learned during his several years stay in Seoul. Except of a small group in Germany, this was practically the only way to get acquainted with this martial art that has given original base of Taekwon-do in Europe.

Since then Martin Zámečník attended France every year for training purposes several times a year and soon the master Bressy began to visit the Czech Republic regularly and to teach Taekkyon at the camps and events of Taekwon-Do school GBHS.

The next year 2014 Martin Zámečník for the first time visited Seoul for the purpose of intensive training of Taekkyon and visiting the monuments and schools associated with Taekwon-do. During the annual training stays he practiced three basic styles of Taekkyon (Taekkyun...) – Taehan, Kyulun and Widae, in which he also gained the first „Dans“ (analogy of black belts in other martial arts).

In 2018, the Czech Association of Taekkyon was formed and the regular trainings, seminars and exams were started.


Since 10.5. 2018 we are test-starting . Meanwhile, we are opening up to three lessons per week at elementary school Campanus. On the basis of your interest we will open other groups outside of Prague from September 2018.
