Taekwondo

“The way of the feet and hands” is the meaning of the Korean word taekwondo. Fighters score points by landing kicks and punches on the torso and head of their opponent – the fighter with the most points wins the bout. The combination of accuracy, power and control in taekwondo fights, coupled with the grace and movement of the ancient martial arts, makes for an impressive contest

The major features of this sport include tricking the opponent with feints and fakes to counterattack, and the martial art aspect of knocking down the opponent with an accurate attack. Competitors can also win by knocking out their opponent or lose by disqualification resulting from a foul. If a match is tied after three rounds, a fourth round will be conducted as a golden point round.
