Paralympic taekwondo is for athletes who have a certain level of physical impairment, typically from the impairment or loss of an arm. As in standard Olympic taekwondo points are scored by kicks to the body, which has a chest protector, though head kicks are not allowed. It is the first full-contact striking sport ever contested at the Paralympics. It takes its place alongside Paralympic judo, which is contested by visually impaired athletes.
