From the people who brought Rock Steady Boxing to Kingwood comes a new wave of Taekwondo – the High Intensity Taekwondo (HIT) League.
Well, technically, the HIT League isn’t necessarily new, so much as it is a return to the “old-school” scoring methods.
Nonetheless, the crowd went wild during the inaugural match at Lone Star College-Kingwood for a concept that some believe has the potential to revolutionize the Taekwondo landscape.
Jeff Battenberg, co-owner of Battenberg’s Black Belt Academy, unveiled the HIT League concept with a demonstration Saturday, April 22.
The concept of the HIT League is based on the philosophy that the modern sensor-based scoring system has diminished Taekwondo fighters’ incentive to make full-on contact during a match.
