During the 4th WTF World Para-Taekwondo Championships in 2013 the WTF signed a memorandum of understandings with Inas to work together for the development and promotion of Para-Taekwondo for athletes with Intellectual Disabilities.
ID athletes competing in para-taekwondo compete in “poomsae” or martial arts forms. A pattern of prearranged blocking, punching and kicking techniques.
Para-taekwondo poomsae competitions were held for the first time in 2014 at the 5th WTF World Para-Taekwondo Championships in Moscow and will be on the program for the 6th WTF World Para-Taekwondo Championships to be held in Samsun, Turkey on September 17, 2015.
Para-taekwondo poomsae will also be a demonstration sport for the 2015 INAS Global Games.
