Individual and Team Competition in the following Events:
Competitors will perform a series of attacking and defensive movements against imaginary opponents in a pre arranged sequence which tests the poise, precision and technical efficiency of the athletes.
Dynamic kicking, punching blocking and striking in a fast, exhilarating but controlled environment. 2 action packed rounds in each match will spell bind the audience as they witness a flurry of spinning and flying techniques.
The incredible power of Taekwon-Do cannot be demonstrated against the human body. Breaking by both hand and foot techniques against a variety of standard targets will prove the absolute power and accuracy required of this sport. This is a highly charged visual event closely contested where skill and technique can be overcome strength and size.
Aerial techniques which highlight individual abilities to leap awe inspiring heights and length most people could only imagine and still clearly hit a target.
Fast paced and action packed scenes straight from Hollywood movies will demonstrate the use of Taekwon-Do in a free style self defence routine where the hero is engaged in combat against multiple armed and unarmed opponents.
