Purpose: This study is highly anticipated to reduce unfair judgment in Taekwondo demonstration games as a qualitative study done on the recognition, problems and development plans of Taekwondo breaking demon-stration competitions through research subjects composed of referees with experience in Taekwondo breaking demonstration competitions. Furthermore, if unified competition rules are applied regardless of the event or-ganizer, it can be used as basic data for establishing objective grounds for Taekwondo demonstration events as a sport. Method: This study used the purposeful sampling method, a non-probability sampling method, as a repre-sentative method of qualitative research and selected 5 people who have experience as a referee in Taekwondo breaking demonstration competitions. The study participants include 4 men and 1 woman who are in their 30s and 40s. They possess Taekwondo Grade 6 or 7, and 2 of them have 5 years or less referee experience and 3 had 6 years or more referee experience. After explaining the purpose of the study and the contents of the inter-views to the study participants, the participants were asked to respond through telephone recording in a stable atmosphere for the researcher to directly collect the data. The interviews were recorded using a call recording function of Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra for about 40 minutes, and the recorded data were analyzed through a transcription process using an LG laptop. Results: Breaking demonstration competition referees perception of the competitions was found as follows; ‘characteristics of Taekwondo breaking demonstration competition , advantages , disadvantages , and injury prevention and emergency response. Breaking demonstration competition referees perception of the scoring of the competition was found as follows; ‘demonstration terminologies , evaluation methods , and referee qualifications.’ Breaking demonstration competition referees perception of the development plans of the com-petition was found as follows; ‘development potentials , need for scoring criteria , establishment of scoring terminology’, enhancement of referee expertise , and safety accidents.’ Conclusion: First, the perception of breaking demonstration competition referees toward the demonstration competitions was analyzed as the characteristics, advantages, disadvantages and emergency response of the breaking demonstration. Second, the perception of breaking demonstration competition referees toward the scoring was found to be demonstration terminologies, evaluation methods and referee qualifications. Third, the perception of breaking demonstration competition referees toward the development plan for breaking demon-stration competitions was observed to be development potentials, need for scoring criteria, establishment of scoring terminology, enhancement of referee expertise and safety accidents.
