Purpose: Taekwondo is gaining global popularity as a sport through gyeorugi, poomsae, and demonstra-tions. As a proposal for the better development of Taekwondo, I would like to emphasize the importance of scientification. Methods: There is a need for systematic efforts to create a new Taekwondo for sports science that inte-grates with artificial intelligence, virtual reality, the robot industry, big data, and biological chemistry. Above all, we must not forget the essence of human-centered Taekwondo. The development of contents as an education-al program centered on the moral value of Taekwondo and the development of Taekwondo in fusion with cul-ture must be emphasized continuously. Results: As a specific project, scientific research on Taekwondo to present evidence for health promotion and academic research for cutting-edge science in competition sports are representative. In order to establish itself as a sport and improve performance, more intensive efforts on the use of cutting-edge science are em-phasized to solve the abundance of problems such as stadium specifications, game time, scoring type, judg-ment method, and electronic tooling of sportswear and shoes. The development of a taekwondo program as a rehabilitation sport for the recovery of human inner and physical function can be a new attempt in considera-tion of changes in the times including low birthrate and aging. Conclusion: Taekwondo should play a role in protecting human body shape in excellent form while converg-ing with more diverse disciplines to promote health and improve athletic performance. Just as many changes in human science have been accompanied by culture and religion, efforts to find human-centered Taekwondo science should also be attempted.
