Peace & Harmony, Taekwondo

There are 237 nations in the entire world today.
Meanwhile, Taekwondo is officially practiced in over 204 nations around the world.
Taekwondo was accepted into the 2000 Sydney Olympics as an official Olympic sport while Baku in Azerbaijan is set to host the first European Olympics, in which Taekwondo will also be included in the competition. Currently, the sport has 7th largest number of member nations in the world.

What has made Taekwondo so popular among people?
To find the answer to this question, this documentary will peer into the lives of a young Zambian boy and confident Iranian women who are breaking new ground.

Patson's Hope

Patson, 10, lives in Zambia in the southern area of Africa.
The young boy believes in the old Zambian saying, "Anything is achievable through hard work."

So Patson makes an effort every day reach his goals.
Bron in Chipata, which is 500km from Zambia's capital Lusaka, his family was too poor to send him to school. But with the help of an uncle, he was able to move to Lusaka.
But moving to a big city became a lonely experience for him.
Struggling with poverty and loneliness, Patson found a strand of hope.
He was selected to join the Zambian Youth Taekwondo Demonstration Team as a part of the Sports for Hope program funded by the IOC and United Nations.

Through Taekwondo, Patson learned how to act around adults and respect other people.
And it also made him more aware of who he was and what he wanted in life. Now he talks about his hopes with confidence.

He vows to become a member of the Zambian National Taekwondo Team and win a gold medal in the Olympics to bring hope and joy to his people.
