    There has been some controversy over the running of Taekwondo in the Olympics in the past, but the people and the media feel that this year's changes may have made Taekwondo a better Olympic sport! With a new points system and action replay it made this years Olympics more fair for the competitors. WTF Secretary General Jean-Marie Ayer said London was the "best Olympic Taekwondo competition yet"

    It was much easier to watch this time out for both those who theoretically knew what was going on and those who didn't!

    I thought this years games were not that good! The action lacking! I've seen better matches in local competitions! I did like the new rules for scoring. Most of this years competitors used the same technique (front leg side kick ) to hold off the other competitor! Looked a lot like 70's karate! Master Fahy
