Ward off those terrible Evil Cubes with some Olympic-level Taekwondo during Eyewire’s Summer Games!

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art developed in the 1940s and 50s. The oldest taekwondo organization is the Korea Taekwondo Association (KTA), formed in 1959 by representatives from the 9 original kwans – Korean martial arts schools. A style of Taekwondo called Gyeorugi (full contact sparring) joined the Olympic Games in 1992.

So pull on your dobok, tie up your black belt, and get ready to tornado kick those mergers into oblivion!
