Tae Kwon Do Tournament Sparring Advice

The beginning of this year I decided to go back and start doing tournaments again. After my previous attempts went down like a lead balloon. I always used to give myself the typical excuses why I lost; I got the winner in the first round, the referee wasn’t scoring the fight correctly.

I decided to go back to the drawing board with a new outlook to my sparing, so far it’s paid off this year I have three medals from three tournament including – Tagb Men English Champion, Tagb Men Welsh Champion and 3rd place in the TAGB Midlands Championships.

Below are some of the things I notice from my latest tournaments and from my training. I am by no means an expert and these are just my thoughts if you have any suggestion drop them into the comments at the bottom of the page.
