|[ Etc ] Taekwondo Research Institute of Kukkiwon to Publish ‘Taekwondo Research Outcomes at a glance Poster’|
Taekwondo Research Institute of Kukkiwon (hereinafter referred to as the “Research Institute”) is going to publish and distribute a Taekwondo Research Outcomes at a glance Poster’ (hereinafter referred to as ‘Poster’).
The Research Institute has published and presented a number of research outcomes since its establishment in 2006.
In particular, it has published an academic journal, ‘Kukkiwon Taekwondo Research’, which was registered in the National Research Foundation of Korea for the first time as the Taekwondo journal, and has made efforts to maintain the status.
Despite the efforts, various researches have not been applied to the actual policies and businesses of Kukkiwon and some criticize that the research outcomes are not properly utilized because they are too complex for the field to adopt.
To make improvements, the Research Institute decided to publish and distribute the Poster based on the research so that Taekwondo instructors can easily read and adopt it.
The Poster will be published online and circulated via the website of the Research Institute.
The special feature of the Poster is the use of infographic templates for anyone to easily understand.
Kukkiwon President Lee Dong-sup said, “Although the Research Institute has conducted a range of studies that verify the positive effects of Taekwondo, unfortunately, it was not used in the actual field”. “I wish the at-a-glance Poster could motivate Taekwondo practice and help revitalize Taekwondo dojangs”, he added.
The Poster can be downloaded at the website of Research Institute (http://research.kukkiwon.or.kr) for use.
