Like the Kukkiwon, Taekwondowon (also called Taekwondo Park) is a government-sponsored academy for taekwondo instruction in South Korea. The Taekwondowon is sponsored by the Taekwondo Promotion Foundation, which in turn is sponsored by the South Korean Ministry for Culture, Sports, and Tourism.
Construction of Taekwondowon began in 2007 and was completed in 2013. The campus is located in Muju County within the North Jeolla Province of South Korea (about a 3-hour drive south of Seoul, the location of the Kukkiwon). The Taekwondowon campus measures approximately 3,300 square kilometers. Facilities include a large arena, training centers, a theater, a museum, a restaurant, dormitories, and an administrative building.
