Today, taekwondo is the fastest growing martial art in the world with over 30 million practitioners in 159 nations. It became an official sport at the Pan-Am Games in 1984, was designated a demonstration sport at the Olympic Games in 1988, and made a fully official Olympic Sport in the Sydney 2000 Olympics.
