Bushido, and are noted for their display of chivalry to both friends and foes. Chivalry in Asia guides conduct as to inspire and enhance humanity’s development (Simpkins, Annellen and Alex). The ancient Hwa Rang Do warriors of Korea also borrowed ideas from Confucian doctrine. Hwa Rang Do later became known as Taekwondo, the most popular martial art in the world. Taekwondo’s moral culture is influenced by the moral culture of Confucian philosophy (Maguire). Modern Taekwondo is more than a skill/technique
Taekwondo (태권도; 跆拳道; Korean pronunciation: [tʰɛkwʌndo])[a] is a Korean martial art and the national sport of South Korea. In Korean, tae (태, 跆) means "to strike or break with foot"; kwon (권, 拳) means "to strike or break with fist"; and do (도, 道) means "way," "method," or "art." Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as "the art of the foot and fist" or "the art of kicking and punching." In 1989, taekwondo was the world's most popular martial art, as measured by the number of practitioners.
