The point of taekwondo is to land however many kicks and blows as you can on your adversary in the permitted target regions.
A taekwondo challenge involves three rounds of two minutes each – with a one-minute break between each round.
The entire taekwondo challenge region is a 10m square mat.
Triumph in a taekwondo session can be accomplished by knockout, by scoring the most focuses, or as a matter of course in the event that the rival is precluded.
Scoring in taekwondo
In taekwondo one point is scored for each real strike on the body, and two focuses are given for kicks to the face. Contenders get an extra point for a knockdown.
One official and three appointed authorities direct the challenge, and a point is granted just when at least two adjudicators register a hit simultaneously.
Kicks to the head and body are possibly granted focuses assuming that they are arrived with parts of the foot beneath the lower leg.
Hits to the body should be with the front of the list and center finger knuckles of a firmly held clench hand in the event that they are to be granted places. Warriors are not permitted to punch to the head.
Punishments in taekwondo
Punishments in taekwondo are granted for offenses, for example, snatching, holding, pretending injury, pushing, and it one’s back on a rival to turn.
The most serious taekwondo offense is ‘Gam-jeom’, which prompts one point being deducted. Instances of ‘Gam-jeom’ incorporate tossing a rival, purposely venturing over the limit line, pulling an adversary to the ground, and going after the face with everything except the feet.
In the event that a rival is thumped to the ground, the ref starts a 10 second count. A knockdown happens in the event that any piece of a challenger’s body contacts the floor separated from the foot. There is an obligatory eight-second count before the official concludes whether the session ought to proceed.
A knockdown turns into a knockout on the off chance that a contender can’t recover by the count of ten seconds or on the other hand on the off chance that the ref concludes the person is ill suited to go on toward the finish of an eight count.
In the event that a challenge closes with the contenders level on focuses, the hopeful with the most focuses before punishments were deducted is the champ. On the off chance that the scores are as yet level after this, the arbitrator grants the challenge to the warrior he accepts to have been the most ready to assault. The main special case for these principles happens in the last of a rivalry, when a tied challenge will go to an extra ‘unexpected passing’ round where the first to score a point wins. On the off chance that no outcome is accomplished during this round, a ultimate conclusion indeed lies with the ref.
Olympic contest rules for taekwondo
The Olympic taekwondo contest appears as an end competition to choose the gold and silver decorations.
After this underlying competition, two gatherings are then drawn up of the relative multitude of contenders – aside from the semi-finalists – who have lost to both of the finalists. Another knockout cycle then creates two pool victors. Each pool champ then faces the beaten semi-finalist from the opposite side of the draw, and the victors of these two sessions seek the bronze award.
