Essence of the Sport

Matches are fought on a matted octagonal field of play, which encourages lively footwork and evasive movement, while demanding good use of peripheral vision. Matches consist of three rounds of two minutes each, with one-minute breaks between rounds.

Taekwondo’s Protector and Scoring System, or PSS, was first adopted for Olympic competition at London 2012.

Outlook for the Tokyo 2020 Games

A sport with growing global appeal

As of today, no male athlete has won gold at two successive Olympic Games. In the women’s events, some athletes have achieved greater dominance. Wu Jingyu of China won gold in the -49kg category at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012, while in the -57kg event, Great Britain’s Jade Jones won gold at London 2012 and Rio 2016. Jones has said she wants to “become a legend” by winning a third consecutive Olympic gold at the Tokyo 2020.

For the first time at the Olympic Games, a 4D camera will be set up on the taekwondo court to capture all matches. The system provides 360-degree scans of the action, enabling viewers to see every angle of the athletes’ spectacular acrobatics. A new competition uniform using high-tech materials will also be introduced.
