About Korean Tigers Pro Demonstration Team
The Korean Tigers Professional Demonstration Team represents the best of the best in martial arts. The Korean Tigers were founded in 1990 to promote Taekwondo worldwide. They perform during the international tour every summer and winter season. Their demonstrations include the exciting self-defense techniques of Hapkido, the grace of Kung Fu, the powerful blows of Kickboxing, the wrestling and tremendous break falls of Judo, the mastery of weapons of Kendo, and incredible gymnastic feats. And the most spectacular of all -- the gravity-defying kicks, the power breaking, and the precision control of Taekwondo. The Tigers have toured throughout the world, including Asia, Canada, Mexico, and South America. The Tigers' tours have also spanned America, from New York to Hawaii.
