Really great job on a tough sport to shoot. Nice exposure and sharpness on all. The images that work best are the ones where you see the strike. The ones where the body hides the foot are less effective IMO because the action is hidden. Which, of course, is what makes this sport so tough to shoot. The round kick to the head and even the last shot where the kick was blocked are probably my favorites.

Great job!!

I think both of the player will move like a circle like the pic show below





i found that if u use the Left/Right top focus point is much easy to catch the shot.

Movement patterns depend mostly on the skill and experience of the fighters. Less experienced fighters tend to move much more linearly. A more skilled fighter will use more of the ring and fight more two demensionally. Depending on the scoring system employed (here in America it is mostly electronic scoring from corner judges now) the most skilled will position their attacks offering a good vantage point to the corner judges. But it's been a few years since I competed and at that time I didn't photograph the sport. And right now I don't cover competition sparring as there are often way too many rings in play to even cover a single school much less the whole tournament.

Excellent photos and yep, Taekwondo is very difficult to shoot. I use to compete in Olympic, like your pictures and it's a very fast pace sport. Love the ones where you can see the strike. :-)

Well done! You've fullfilled a challenging task considering the unsufficient indoor lighting conditions to freeze such rapid movements in frames! As far as I know,the D300 is capable of going above iso 1600 though, the results of which are still usable. Anyway, exciting images indeed, to itch my old bruises : )
