Taekwondo is one of the traditional Korean martial arts and it is now a modern international sport. Basically, the conventional method of Taekwondo training is to join a training class together with other trainees which are conducted with a trainer. Besides that, supplementary materials are used whenever the trainees wanted to practice certain particular movements as well preparing for the test in the absence of the trainer. This paper introduces a Virtual Taekwondo Training Environment (VT2E) prototype as a supplementary material for self-directed Taekwondo training which integrates Virtual Reality (VR) and Motion Capture (MoCap) technologies. The aim of the VT2E prototype is to provide a proper and sophisticated supplementary material which will assist the Taekwondo trainees to practice outside the classroom. Quantitative research was employed for evaluating the following measurements; Satisfaction, Presence, Engaging, Ease of Use and Usefulness. The results of user evaluation indicated that the trainees agreed with all the measurements.
