|Abstract||Sports games and taekwondo have hitherto been core facets in colleges and university physical education curricula. This owes to the significant benefits derived from the duo, especially with the increase in sedentary lifestyles, resulting in dreaded repercussions when strenuous exercise is not brought into play. Taekwondo is a type of martial art known to have originated from Korea but has now gained popularity internationally. Some of the known benefits of taekwondo are reducing stress and improving cardiovascular system (CVS) physiology. On the other hand, sports games also help immensely in the physiological and mental health of college and university students. For instance, outdoor games are essential in the pulmonary system as indoor games are for mental health. The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of sports games and taekwondo teaching in colleges and universities. The prospective study was conducted on a sample of 195 students. Both qualitative and quantitative data were collected by random means. The data collected was then analyzed to find the type of distribution. The results indicated a normal distribution with a resultant bell curve. The central tendency and dispersion were calculated. A high level of decision-making, confidence, and fitness was noted in students practicing these activities in their colleges and universities vis-à-vis those who do not. Sports and taekwondo increase the level of training, which enhances the skeletal system to take up and utilize lipids. This process reduces the level of plasma lipids, thus preventing chronic health conditions like obesity and diabetes. In conclusion, sports and taekwondo are essential in maintaining a healthy standard and should always be incorporated into the college and university curriculum. © 2022 Jiaxin Zhang and Wei Fang.
