While the Cadet Pan American Championships were developed using the KP & P PSS, in adjacent areas the Open Pan American Championships, were also being developed, but using Daedo PSS.
While both systems functioned correctly, a survey made to participating coaches and athletes showed a 95% preference for DAEDO.
The main features in favor of Daedo TK Strike system were: two-color protector which gives the possibility to use it in blue or red; lower cost for the acquisition and maintenance, simple software operation. The main negative features found in the KP & P system was the uncomfortable shin guard, lack of promotion, distribution and commercialization which results in a lack of knowledge of the system.
Additionally, 80% of the taekwondo leaders in the American Continent present in the PATU General Assembly stated that they were financially unable to purchase a new protector scoring system.
For the reasons exposed before, we can firmly confirm that Spanish Daedo PSS is the preferred system in the countries of the American Continent.
