Nine elite Taekwondo athletes participate in experimental research. Results, showed that there were significant differences between two different guards in movement time, maximum velocity of toe, hip angular velocity, knee angular velocity, and ankle angular velocity. These kinematics characteristics of front guard were better than back guard, these reach significant difference statistically.
