The Platformed Taekwondo Competition Area is a professional sports structure consisting of a flat non-slip taekwondo mat installed on a lifted stage. Like standard competition areas, the platformed area can also be made with interlocking foam tiles, roll out mats, folding mats, landing mats made with EVA foam for soft landing and durability.

A Taekwondo contest area most often has a low reflection on the surface and should not tire spectators’ and contestants’ eyesight and color schemes matching the contestants’ equipment. The competition area is square-shaped and includes the contest area which is octagonally shaped or square-shaped and a safety area. The contestants are usually at two opposing points at the start of the match and a meter from the center point.

Platformed Taekwondo Competition Areas are lifted to a height betwen 23.62”-39.37” (60-100 cm) and contain the regulated competition length and width of 26.25’ (8 m) for an area of 689 ft² (64 m²). The starting lines separating the two combatants are places 6.56’ (2 m) apart in the center of the competition area.
