The present research strives to offer aid for the prevention and curing of athlete injuries by grasping the cause and cure for sports injuries of Taekwondo Poomsae(A systematic sequence of moves in Korean martial arts) athletes in Korean Universities. For this, an in-dept interview was conducted with 7 college athletes enlisted in the Korea Taekwondo Association presently in 2019, and by taking into account the opinions of research participants and through the comparing and examining of various measures from previous researches, a research result was derived. Firstly, the experience of sports injury among Taekwondo Poomsae athletes in Korean universities was most common during their high school days. Secondly, the technique which causes the most injury among the Poomsae in Taekwondo was found to be training in kicking, namely moves such as Yeopchagi. Thirdly, in Taekwondo Poomsae, in most cases athletes were injured during the training procedure rather than during the competition. Fourthly, after the injury was experienced there was no instance of psychological rehabilitation. Lastly, in order to prevent damage, not only the athlete but also the instructor must cooperate, and a systematic basic health training system, a personal health maintenance system, and new psychological rehabilitation programs for those injured need to be applied. The prevention of accidents can be done by the appropriate practicing of the basic moves and learning of the techniques, an adequate warm up before the competition, a systematic exercising program ’ s planning and training, and care taken by a routine psychological counseling and efforts to avoid a slump. Also, there is the need to accumulate knowledge on the cause of wounds and its prevention, and conduct safety instruction sessions.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide useful information on physical fitness training to improve the performance of Taekwondo demonstration majors by identifying the characteristics of physical fitness factors according to the performance level of university Taekwondo demonstration members. Method: The subjects of this study are Taekwondo demonstration members enrolled in K University located in D city. The differences in body structure, physical fitness factors, isokinetic muscle function of the knee joint, and anaerobic exercise capacity were compared and analyzed for 3 male students in the national demonstration group and 3 male students in the general demonstration group. Results: As a result of measurement of body structure, physical fitness factors, isokinetic muscle function, and anaerobic exercise capacity of the national demonstration team and general students, there was no statistically significant difference between groups. However, through the results of this study, it was confirmed that the ratio of flexor and extensor muscles needs to be improved to an ideal ratio of 55% to 65% as suggested in previous studies to prevent damage to the lower extremities of general students. In addition, the standing long jump and sargent jump, side step, eyes closed and one leg standing, and knee joint isokinetic muscle power showed a higher tendency in the national demonstration group compared to the general students. There was no statistically significant difference between groups in the measurement results of anaerobic exercise capacity. Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it is thought that it will be difficult to present the characteristics of the physical fitness factors according to the performance level of Taekwondo demonstration majors. However, considering the results of many previous studies and this study, it is thought that efforts to improve agility, power, and balance ability are needed to improve the performance of Taekwondo demonstration majors. It is judged that improvement of the flexion muscle/extension muscle ratio of the lower extremities is necessary to prevent additional injuries.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to provide the basic data for the appropriate technique performance by analyzing and presenting the differences in and among the major kinematic factors of Taekwondo’s Dolgaechagi movements between Taekwondo Kyorugi planers and the members of the demonstration team. Method: As for the subjects of this study, from among the Taekwondo players attending the Taekwondo Department of K University, 5 Kyorugi players and 5 demonstrators, among the Kyorugi players, who have entered the national team selection process and the demonstration team of the selection process. Prior to entering the experiment, a consent was secured from each subject, while the experiment implementation procedures were explained, and the kinetic data were collected by using 8 high speed digital cameras. Results: As for the time required for the situation(P2), the time required for the demonstration team was greater than that of the Kyorugi players, and there was a statistically significant difference(p<.05). As for the center of mass up and down(Z) movement displacement, in E3, the demonstrators turned out to be higher than the Kyorugi players, and there was a statistically significant difference(p<.05). In E4, the demonstrators turned out to be higher than the Kyorugi players, and there was a statistically significant difference(p<.05). The difference of the hip joint’s angle turned out to be higher in E4 for the Kyorugi players than the demonstrators(p<.05), and there was a statistically significant difference(p<.05). Conclusion: As a result of the experiment, to improve the level of completion of the Dolgaechagi kick, the demonstrator needs to jump high from and above the ground and also have the sports ability in the jumping state for the accurate movement, and at the time of executing the Dolgaechagi kick, in using the force for the ankle and knee joints, he or she turned out to execute the Dolgaechagi movement after bending the hip joint to the maximum. Kyorugi players need low and prompt sports ability since they strike the target by relying on fast rotations from the groun, and at the time of executing the Dolgaechagi kick, rather than using the force of the ankle and knee joints, they turned out to execute the Dolgaechagi movement without a maximum bend for the hip joint’s angle as they strike the target by relying on fast rotations.In order to efficiently perform kicks based on such results, the Kyorugi players need a training by using fast rotations on the ground, and the demonstrators need strength and flexibility trainings in making jumps high on the ground.
