1988 Summer Games in Seoul, Korea as a demonstration sport.

2000 Summer Games in Sydney, Australia as a full medal sport.

Taekwondo was also a demonstration sport in 1992 in Barcelona, Spain. The announcement was made in 1994 that Taekwondo would be included as a full medal sport in 2000, but in accordance with the rules of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), was only permitted as an exhibition for the 1996 games in Atlanta, Georgia. Taekwondo has continued as an Olympic event of the Summer Games every four years since 2000.

It should be noted that the Korean National sport of Taekwondo is based on the Korean National Martial Art, but is a different activity which is modified and limited in many aspects. The Martial Art of Taekwondo remains active in many Dojang (schools) world-wide for the purposes of self improvement, and a highly effective method of self defense.
