Rules WTF 2006


New WTF rules per April 2006


The WTF has decided to make some changes in a bid to make the taekwondo sport more exciting to watch.

The following changes are applicable:


4 Corner judges instead of the current 3

Golden point if there is no winner after the no. of rounds

If one competitor reaches an advantage of 7 points (including warnings and deductions ), the fight is over.

If one of the competitors reaches 12 points, the fight is also over.


All these changes are already implemented in the new scoreboard software. You still have the option to enable/disable the use of these rules.
