TKD forum is a perfect place to post this question because it began as a martial art then evolved into a martial sport. Can someone tell me the difference between what is a martial art and what is a martial sport?

The way I see it, martial sport can be seen as a form of practice for martial art. A good way of testing and experimenting certain skills.

I think one is self defense and the other is for gathering trophies.

Martial sport is something that you participate in as a hobbie. Martial art is daily living!

To me boxing is a martial sport. When I was in my teens I was a Golden Gloves boxer. I never learned “Tenants of Boxing” nor did start every workout by reciting the “Boxers Student Oath”. To me it was a sport. This is not to say however that there are not boxing gyms where boxing is treated as an art. I believe that this is a very personal thing. To me Tae Kwon Do is an art. To some of my peers it is a sport…and that is fine with me.

Over the last 25 years I have studied and taught Tae Kwon Do. I have adapted certain techniques for my personal interpretation, and passed these interpretations on to my students. To me this means that I have put part of myself into Tae Kwon Do, and that is most certainly my definition of an art.

I thought Taekwondo is a martial art. Only these guys who do Olympic sparring they do martial sports.
But they all have to start with Tae Kwon Do as a martial art, isn´t it?

Actually that is where some people differ in opinion. For me Traditional TKD kicking techniques are different from Modern TKD kicking techniques which are used in olympic style sparring.

But both hand techniques from "traditional"and "modern" are identical.

Please add more to your post. Now that I've tried to clarify this up.

I understood what you posted. The lines begin to get blurry dont they?

I think this question between martial art and martial sport is going to need some extra terms added to it such as "budo" and "bujutsu" For a simple description of these they can be found on google.

I've been thinking about the debate between M-arts and M-sports, to me it's beggining to sound ust like politics between the old and the new.

Taekwondo is both a martial art and a martial sport. Forms, self defense and all of that stuff is martial arts. Competing in the olympics or the sake of sparring only is martial sports. One is traditional and one is sport. Some schools will train just traditional, some schools will train just sport and some schools will train both. This includes ITF, WTF and any others I missed.
