Kolmogorov–Smirnov test was used as normality test. Independent t-test was used for statistical analysis at p≥0.05. Results: The findings showed that there is no significant difference in physical type, body composition, flexibility, visual response, dynamic balance, lower extremity explosive power and aerobic capacity between two styles (P≥0.05), but differences between two styles in mean anaerobic power and agility were statistically different (P≤0.05). Conclusions: Due to the result of this research in Taekwondo athlete the dominant body type is mesomorphy that have ectomorphy features as well. Also various physiological and physical fitness characteristics of Professional Women taekwondo athletes in both Kiurogi and Poomsae styles was not different significantly except in agility, mean anaerobic power and lower body explosive power.
