EQUIPMENT INFORMATION

 

As a practitioner of Tae Kwon Do, there are several types of equipment one should be familiar with. The traditional uniform is known as a do-bock, and consists of a loose-fitting pair of pants and a double-breasted top.

 

 

 

CHEST GUARDS

A chest guard is designed to protect the upper body during sparring matches. Typically constructed with shock absorbent foam or rubber, they are usually marked with circular targets (as shown) in reversible colors.

 

HEAD GUARDS

Another important protective piece of equipment are head guards. Made with thick foam, they are designed to protect the cranium and ear drums from high kicks while sparring.

 

FOREARM AND SHIN GUARDS

During sparring, students also wear guards to protect the bones in the forearms (wrist to elbow) and shins.

 

TRAINING TOOLS

Kicking mitts are available at many martial arts equipment stores and are used as a training tool for Tae Kwon Do students.
