This is an important part of Taekwondo in both grading and competition. In ITF Taekwondo sparring is generally semi-contact, thus enabling a wider range of kicks to be used. Competitions are either continuous where competitors spar for a set time and the points added at the end. Competitors wear full protective pads including, foot, groin (for men), hand, head and gum shield. Scoring is generally; 1 point for any and technique, 2 points for a mid-section kick or 3 points for a head kick.
