The Sport of Taekwondo

Beginning with the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, Taekwondo was brought into the spotlight of the international stage as athletes from around the world competed for Olympic gold. Athletes compete in three two-minute rounds within an 8m x 8m ring. Athletes wear the Dobok, the traditional white uniform, with protective equipment that is coloured for easy differentiation. Scoring in Taekwondo is awarded by landing different kicks and punches on the opponent’s torso or head. Points are awarded as follows:

1 Point  Kick or punch to the torso 2 Points  Spinning kick to the torso 3 Points  Kick to the head 4 Points  Spinning kick to the head
