As a highly technical and physically demanding sport, keeping athletes on the mats, recovering well and continually improving technique and tactical strategies are all critical to the GB Taekwondo World Class Performance Programme.

EIS practitioners work closely with athletes and coaches at sports’ Manchester training base, as well as in training, camps and competitions around the world. The UK Sport/EIS Performance Pathway team has also worked to develop GB Taekwondo’s pathways, including the Fighting Chance initiative which successfully integrated several Olympic medal winning athletes into the programme.
