Sparring: Face-Off is designed to simulate the strategic elements involved in a real Taekwon-do sparring match as closely as possible. The goal of this game is to strike your opponent with as many techniques as possible in order to bring their impact points from 30 to 0. You must work within several strategic parameters to achieve this including judging your distance to your opponent, determining the most beneficial facing to your opponent, constructing an advantageous attack, and dealing with your weaknesses while exploiting your opponent's. Some of the safety rules implemented in Taekwon-do sparring matches also apply to this game. There is no hitting to the back or below the waist. We are not fighting to the death. We do not draw blood. This game encourages a courteous though determined mind set where honor prevails.
