Rules to play taekwondo

Introduction
1. Which translates as the ways of hands and feet consists of a number of ancient martial arts unified into one sport. It came to the fore in the 1950s when Korean martial arts leaders decided it should be promoted internationally although the first world championships were not held until 1973. Since then, the popularity of taekwondo has been on a rapid increase and the sport has been confirmed for the Olympic Games programme to be held in London in 2012. .....
Scoring in taekwondo
2. In taekwondo one point is scored for each legitimate strike on the body, and two points are given for kicks to the face. Competitors get an additional point for a knockdown.
One referee and three judges oversee the contest, and a point is awarded only when two or more judges register a hit at the same time.
Kicks to the head and body are only awarded points if they are landed with parts of the foot below the ankle.
Blows to the body must be with the front of the index and middle finger knuckles of a tightly clenched fist if they are to be awarded points. Fighters are not allowed to punch to the head. .....
Penalties in taekwondo
3. Penalties in taekwondo are awarded for offences such as grabbing, holding, feigning injury, pushing, and turning ones back on an opponent.
The most serious taekwondo offence is Gam jeom, which leads to one point being deducted. Examples of Gam jeom include throwing an opponent, deliberately stepping over the boundary line, pulling an opponent to the ground, and attacking the face with anything but the feet.
If an opponent is knocked to the ground then the referee begins a 10 second count. A knockdown occurs if any part of a contestants body touches the floor apart from the foot. There is a mandatory eight second count before the referee decides whether the bout should continue.
A knockdown becomes a knockout if a competitor cannot regain his or her feet by the count of ten seconds or if the referee decides he or she is unfit to continue at the end of an eight count.
If a contest ends with the competitors level on points, then the contestant with the most points before penalties were deducted is the winner. If the scores are still level after this, then the referee awards the contest to the fighter he believes to have been the most willing to attack. The only exception to these rules occurs in the final of a competition, when a tied contest will go to an extra sudden death round where the first to score a point wins. If no result is achieved during this round then the final decision once again lies with the referee. .....
Olympic competition rules for taekwondo
4. The Olympic taekwondo competition takes the form of an elimination tournament to decide the gold and silver medals.
After this initial tournament, two groups are then drawn up of all the competitors except the semi finalists who have lost to either of the finalists. Another knockout process then produces two pool winners. Each pool winner then faces the beaten semi finalist from the other side of the draw, and the winners of these two bouts compete for the bronze medal.
The weight divisions for an Olympic taekwondo competition are as follows Men under 58kg; under 68kg; under 80kg; over 80kg. Women under 49kg; under 57kg; under 67kg; over 67kg. .....

Competition
15. Taekwondo competition typically involves sparring, breaking, patterns, and self defense (hosinsul). In Olympic taekwondo competition, however, only sparring (using WTF competition rules) is performed.There are two kinds of competition sparring point sparring, in which all strikes are light contact and the clock is stopped when a point is scored; and Olympic sparring, where all strikes are full contact and the clock continues when points are scored. .....
Safety
16. Although taekwondo competitors have an apparently substantial risk of injury, most injuries are minor. A 2009 meta analysis reported that an average of about 8% of competitors are injured per exposure to competition. Age, gender, and level of play did not significantly affect the injury rate.The legs are the most common location for injuries, and bruising is the most common injury type.Injuries may occur if students are taught to block punches in a formal manner (chamber position, perfect angles, etc.) even when sparring. When comparing the speed of a punch and the reaction time taken to block effectively, it is difficult to block a punch. Many taekwondo schools teach students blocking for grading and classwork, and dodging or parrying for sparring. .....
Korean commands
17. In taekwondo, Korean language commands are often used. Korean numerals may be used as prompts or commands, or for counting repetition exercises. Often, students count in Korean during their class, and during tests they are usually asked what certain Korean words mean. These words are fairly common amongst taekwondo dojos, but accuracy of pronunciation can vary widely. .....
Ranks belts and promotion
18. Taekwondo ranks are typically separated into junior and senior, or student and instructor, sections. The junior section typically consists of ten ranks indicated by the Korean word geup.(also Romanized as gup or kup). The junior ranks are usually identified by belts of various colors, depending on the school, so these ranks are sometimes called color belts. Geup rank may be indicated by stripes on belts rather than by colored belts. Students begin at tenth geup (often indicated by a white belt) and advance toward first geup (often indicated by a red belt with a white or black stripe).
The senior section is typically made up of nine ranks. Each rank is called a dan,also referred to as black belt or degree (as in third dan or third degree black belt). Black belts begin at first degree and advance to second, third, and so on. The degree is often indicated on the belt itself with stripes, Roman numerals, or other methods, but sometimes black belts are plain and unadorned regardless of rank. .....
Etymology
19. The name taekwondo is generally credited to Choi Hong Hi. The World Taekwondo Federation claims that taekwondo development was a collaborative effort by a council consisting of members from the nine original kwans, while the International Taekwon Do Federation credits Choi Hong Hi solely.In Korean, tae means to stomp or to strike or break with the foot; kwon means to strike or break with the fist; and do means way of life. Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as the way of the foot and the hand. The name taekwondo is also written as taekwon do, tae kwon do, or tae kwon do by various organizations. .....
Theory of Power
20. This emphasis on speed and agility is a defining characteristic of taekwondo and has its origins in analyses undertaken by Choi Hong Hi. The results of that analysis are known by ITF practitioners as Chois Theory of Power. Chois Theory of Power is based on biomechanics and Newtonian physics. For example, Choi observed that the power of a strike increases quadratically with the speed of the strike, but increases only linearly with the mass of the striking object. In other words, speed is more important than size in terms of generating power. This principle was incorporated into the early design of taekwondo and is still used. .....
Styles and organizations
21. There are a number of major taekwondo styles as well as a few niche styles. Most styles are associated with a governing body or federation that defines the style. The major technical differences among taekwondo styles and organizations generally revolve around the patterns practiced by each style these are sets of prescribed formal sequences of movements that demonstrate mastery of posture, positioning, and technique differences in the sparring rules for competition; specifically, WTF style competition (the style used in the Olympics) is generally more sport oriented and less combat oriented than other styles martial arts philosophy. .....
Equipment and facilities
22. A taekwondo student typically wears a uniform, often white but sometimes black (or other colors), with a belt tied around the waist. White uniforms are considered the traditional color and are encouraged for use at formal ceremonies such as belt tests and promotions. Colored uniforms are often reserved for special teams (such as demonstration teams or leadership teams) or higher level instructors. There are at least three major styles of dobok, with the most obvious differences being in the style of jacket the cross over front jacket, the V neck jacket (no cross over) typically worn by Kukkiwon WTF practitioners, and the vertical closing front jacket (no cross over) typically worn by ITF practitioners. White uniforms in the Kukkiwon WTF tradition will typically be white throughout the jacket, while ITF style uniforms are trimmed with a black border along the bottom of the jacket.

The belt color and any insignia thereon indicate the students rank. Different clubs and schools use different color schemes for belts. In general, the darker the color, the higher the rank. Taekwondo is traditionally performed in bare feet, although martial arts training shoes may sometimes be worn.

When sparring, padded equipment is worn. In the ITF tradition, typically only the hands and feet are padded. For this reason, ITF sparring often employes only light contact sparring. In the Kukkiwon WTF tradition, full contact sparring is facilitated by the employment of more extensive equipment padded helmets called homyun are always worn, as are padded torso protectors called hogu; feet, shins, groins, hands, and forearms protectors are also worn. .....

traditional taekwondo
23. The term traditional taekwondo typically refers to martial arts practiced in Korea during the 1940s and 1950s by the nine original kwans after the conclusion of the Japanese occupation of Korea at the end of World War II. The term taekwondo had not yet been coined. In reality, each of the nine kwans practiced its own style of martial arts, so the term traditional taekwondo serves as an umbrella term for these various styles. Many of the founders of the nine kwans had studied Shotokan karate, so traditional taekwondo shares many of the same techniques, forms (hyeong), and names as Shotokan. Traditional taekwondo is still studied today in martial arts styles such as Tang Soo Do, Soo Bahk Do, and Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo.

The original schools (kwans) that formed the organization that would eventually become Kukkiwon continue to exist as independent fraternal membership organizations that support the World Taekwondo Federation and Kukkiwon. The official curriculum of the kwans is that of Kukkiwon. The kwans also function as a channel for the issuing of Kukkiwon dan and poom certification (black belt ranks) for their members. .....

Jhoon Rhee style
24. In 1962 Jhoon Rhee relocated to the United States and established a chain of martial arts schools primarily in the Washington, D.C. area that practiced traditional taekwondo. In the 1970s, at the urging of Choi Hong Hi, Rhee adopted ITF style taekwondo within his chain of schools, but like the GTF later departed from the ITF due to the political controversies surrounding Choi and the ITF. Rhee went on to develop his own style of taekwondo called Jhoon Rhee style taekwondo, incorporating elements of both traditional and ITF style taekwondo as well as original elements. (Note that Jhoon Rhee style taekwondo is distinct from the similarly named Rhee Taekwon Do.) .....
