Taekwondo Techniques

Taekwondo Basic Movements

In 2005 the Kukkiwon introduced Unified Taekwondo through the Revised Taekwondo Textbook. The revised techniques were fully introduced to a specially invited group of international masters at the 12th World Taekwondo Foreign Instructors Course. The changes impact on all aspects of the art from the basic stances through to the hand and foot techniques to create a more flowing style of Taekwondo designed to be more suitable to every day needs. Modern principles of sports science have been applied to the execution of techniques to minimise the stresses placed upon the practitioner's body. The Taegeuk have been updated not only to take into account the revisions to the basic movements but have also been renumbered to enable instructors and examiners to better assess students.

Sports and competition Taekwondo are affected as the Kukkiwon forms will form the basis of WTF sanctioned competitions as well as setting the standards for WTF and Kukkiwon recognised Dan gradings.
