Abstract: The aim of this study was to compare the fighting strategies between medalists and non-medalists in Taekwondo. A total of 107 matches from the 16th Asian Games had been video-taped for notational analysis. Round house kick was the most frequently used kick by the medalists in the competition (63.29%) while cut down kick (9.26%) and push kick (7.08%) were ranked second and third respectively. Aggressive mode of attack was the dominant fighting strategy used by the medalists (63.17%). Discrepancies in fighting strategies between Taekwondo medalists and non-medalists were found in this study including mode of attack, use of turning attack, and number of types of kick employed.
