Taekwondo, disregarded by bored Korean fans, will get a boost. On April 12, the first nationwide federation match in World Taekwondo Headquarters showed Taekwondo’s new rules. Instead of a 10x10 meter square, a round 100 square meter area was marked on the floor, on which players attack and defend. A newly adopted 15-second rule warns a passive player to do more. A face attack is 4 points, up 1 point from before, allowing players to win a come-from-behind victory with offensive play.
