A new octagon pattern concept grips the athlete’s foot to prevent slippage.
WTF Octagonal Mats, first used at the world championships in 2015, has replaced the traditional rectangular one, which provided corners into which fighters could at times retreat and pursue defense-minded tactics.
In an effort to speed up the action and give fighters more angles in which to move, the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) chose to use a mat shaped more like the rings employed in ultimate fighting and mixed martial arts at the Rio Games.
Along with slight changes in scoring and the electronic equipment fighters wear to help register points, the octagon is meant to be “more athlete-focused and engaging for fans,”.
