Athletes as young as 15 will be among those taking part in the World Taekwondo Beach Championships, which start tomorrow on the Red Sea coast of Egypt in the scenic setting of Sahl Hasheesh bay.
The Sahl Hasheesh Piazza will host the third edition of the highly anticipated Beach Championships from tomorrow to Sunday (October 13).
Recognised poomsae, freestyle dynamic kicks and breaking challenge will all operate on a single-elimination tournament system.
Freestyle poomsae and technical breaking competitions will be determined by the cut-off system.
The three subdivisions for the technical breaking event are: jumping multiple kick, spinning kick and freestyle breaking.
The Championships have attracted the world's leading taekwondo athletes in male and female categories across several events.
World Taekwondo President Chungwon Choue said: "It is with great excitement that we are approaching the third edition of the highly successful World Taekwondo Beach Championships.
"Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Red Sea, the Championships will showcase a different side to taekwondo and connect us to a whole new generation and demographic of people around the globe.
"The Beach Championships serve as a reminder that taekwondo is a flexible and dynamic sport that can be practiced anywhere in the world.
"It does not matter if you are in a gym indoors or on a beautiful beach on the African coast, everyone can enjoy taekwondo."
World Taekwondo is committed to finding new ways to innovate the sport and showcase taekwondo in attractive locations.
The Beach Championships are like no other World Taekwondo competition, as athletes will take part in relaxed summer attire.
