A taekwondo Demo Team is a group of taekwondo practitioners who are particularly expert at taekwondo and organize to perform taekwondo demonstrations at special events. Demo Teams perform for example at taekwondo tournaments and student recruition events (such as school Open Houses, local festivals, special occasions at local shopping malls, etc.). School Demo Teams are characterized by:

Demo Team members will often have special taekwondo uniforms




Demo Team members will often attend special classes where they learn more complex taekwondo routines (often mixed with elements of synchronized dance and acrobatics) intended for public demostration

At taekwondo schools, one funchion of a Demo Team is to sustain the interest of more advanced students. I.e., the Demo Team gives students “a fun social activity” that sustains their interest in taekwondo. The Demo Team also serves a recruitment function, to highlight the quality of instruction at the school, “Our students learn to be this good.”

In addition to demonstrating kicks, breaks, and forms, Demo Teams also often perform Taekwonmu, a combination of taekwondo with dance and acrobatic tricking.
