I just went and looked at the wiki entry for ITF sparring; it sez you need to get three fouls for excessive contact to be DQed. Did your kid know what was coming, did he receive any of those fouls? If not, I suspect you can appeal to the ITF ... no? I may be reading this stuff wrong, it's not my line of country.We aren't in ITF, we're in WTF (World Taekwondo Federation). According to the video shot by one of the parents at the match, the other student was extremely timid. All the shots looked fine. Nothing but side/back of the head shots. Ironically, the girl who took first ended up with 21 points. Almost all of them from head shots. I think we were just unlucky enough to get a judge who misinterpreted the rules. I think it may be too late to appeal the ruling. If her regular coach had been there, he would have been protesting from the get go, but the coach she ended up with didn't want to make waves.Generally, the only rule regarding head shots is that you are supposed to avoid the face and only hit where the headguard covers. She did that, so I really don't understand the issue. LWW
